Things are more than a bit hectic with the British Royal Family at the moment. After a whirlwind romance, wedding and a brand new baby, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle should be blissfully happy. Unfortunately, because they have pushed the monarch toward a more modern era, and Markle is an American woman of color — the British public and press have been extremely ruthless when it comes to everything the couple has done.
We’d all assumed that the royal couple was taking everything in stride. However, in a revealing ITV documentary: Harry And Meghan: An African Journey — the prince and the duchess revealed just how challenging and brutal things have become for them. In fact, rumors are now swirling that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are considering a move to Canada where Markle spent many years filming her hit series, Suits. The move would get them out of the spotlight.
How did the rumors that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle are moving to Canada begin?
In early October 2019, Prince Harry announced his lawsuit against Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Daily Mirror, and The Sun’s publishers. The prince is clearly fed up by the bullying and dehumanizing treatment against his wife and he’s suing the publications for infringing on their privacy. The lawsuit came as shock to the British Royal Family and to the press themselves. In fact, Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer claimed that the British Royal Family isn’t supporting the Sussexes right now. He tweeted,
Nobody in the Royal Family or the Royal Household is supporting Harry and Meghan at the moment. Even the couple’s aides seem embarrassed by their actions. William, who dropped his brother like a ton of hot bricks earlier this year, and Charles have distanced themselves.
A source at the time also told US Weekly, “Meghan and Harry have considered moving to Canada, as it’s part of the Commonwealth/ Meghan and Harry are considering it for the future.”
The reason why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are NOT moving to Canada
Though relocation within the Commonwealth is an option for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — Canada is currently not on their radar. Though the pair adore Canada — it would still be too in the spotlight for the couple who is looking to protect their son, Archie Harrison, at all cost. Instead — the pair are considering a move somewhere within the continent of Africa because of the privacy that it would give them. An insider explained to US Weekly,
After a miserable year in London, Harry and Meghan want to make Africa their home. The critics have made their lives ‘absolute hell’ and they’d get more privacy in Africa—they won’t be hounded by photographers around the clock. Harry wants to build a house in a secluded area so that Archie can grow up being surrounded by nature. And he wants to teach him to horse-ride too.
Would Meghan Markle and Prince Harry move to Cape Town, South Africa?
Though Markle and Prince Harry visited Cape Town during their recent royal tour, South Africa might not be the ideal. In Harry And Meghan: An African Journey — Prince Harry said candidly,
I don’t know where we could live in Africa at the moment, we’ve just come from Cape Town. That would be an amazing place to be able to base ourselves. But with all the problems going on there…I don’t see how we’d be able to make as big a difference as we want to.
If things don’t change for the better in the U.K. we can definitely see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping away from The Crown completely.
