Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are Reportedly in America For Much More Than Vacation

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are enjoying a much-needed break away from the royal family after experiencing a rather difficult year in the British press. While most of the royals are preparing to spend Christmas with Queen Elizabeth at her Sandringham estate, Meghan and Harry are spending the holidays with her mother, Doria Ragland, in California. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are no doubt loving their time in the states, but they are reportedly in America for much more than an extended vacation.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle under fire

Harry and Meghan have worked harder than ever in 2019. Not only did the couple accomplish a lot of charitable work around the world, but they completed a good deal of royal engagements and welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, last May.

While the Sussexes did their best to juggle their royal responsibilities with their personal lives, they were consistently hammered by the media. The two admitted as much in a documentary that aired in October titled Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

In his interview, Prince Harry revealed that he has experienced a few ups and downs in his relationship with Prince William. He also stated that they are now on different paths, which explains why he and Markle moved out of Kensington Palace earlier this year.

For Markle, she confessed that adjusting to her new life as a royal has not been easy. With that in mind, fans were not surprised when the Sussexes announced that they were planning on spending Christmas with her side of the family for a change.

While the trip to America offered them a much-needed break from the royals, there is another reason they decided a vacation was in order.

Meghan Markle to launch a new charity

A few months ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit William and Kate Middleton’s charity, The Royal Foundation. The couple subsequently launched their own charitable organization called Sussex Royal.

According to Vanity Fair, Meghan is using her time in the states to kick off a new branch of Sussex Royal, which will be located somewhere in America. It is unclear where the main office will be located, but there is a good chance it will be in Los Angeles.

Inside sources claim that Meghan has already met with people in the states to get the ball rolling. This includes her old publicist, Keleigh Thomas Morgan, who is reportedly helping the former Suits star start a fundraising campaign.

“While Harry and Meghan are technically on rest, she is not the type of woman who likes doing nothing,” an insider dished.

Buckingham Palace has already confirmed that Meghan and Prince Harry are working with Morgan’s company, Sunshine Sachs, so there may be some truth to this rumor. After all, if Meghan does want to start a branch of Sussex Royal in America, this would be a good time to get things in order.

What’s next for Meghan and Harry?

Now that Meghan and Harry are branching out on their own, sources claim that they are looking to take on more of an international role when it comes to their charities.

“What is most interesting is that Meghan feels that while the charity will be a worldwide venture, she sees Hollywood and American business circles as key to fundraising,” a source shared.

The insider added that Meghan is convinced that she can raise tens of millions of dollars in the United States very quickly, which is why she opening up a branch in the states.

Spotlight on: The Hubb Community Kitchen It was just one year ago that The Duchess of Sussex made a special visit to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare meals for those in need. The connection between The Duchess and these women began a year prior, as she supported them in the creation of “Together”, a charity cookbook which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. The cookbook showcases recipes from women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. Their incredible stories and personal recipes placed “Together” on The New York Times Bestseller List and The Sunday Times Booklist. Today, the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen continue to have a positive impact in their community, across the UK, and around the world. Whether it’s providing a safe space for women and children to come for a hot meal, supporting local schools, serving free lunches to senior citizens, partnering with the Red Cross to provide lunches for refugees, or feeding the homeless – the Hubb helps and heals through their support and sustenance. Thank you, ladies, for the leadership and inspiration that your cooking and love of community brings to all those around you. We remain so very proud of the good work that you continue to do, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings! Photo © PA / Hubb Kitchen / Jenny Zarin

The Duchess of Sussex has not commented on the charity rumors, but she has always loved philanthropic work. Even when she was a young actress in Hollywood, Meghan gained a reputation for working with charities around the world.

Now that she has the backing of the royal family, Meghan can actually accomplish many of these dreams.

Are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry enjoying their stay in America?

A few weeks ago, Buckingham Palace confirmed that Meghan and Prince Harry were leaving the country for the holidays and were spending Christmas with Ragland in Los Angeles. This is the first time the couple has skipped Christmas with Queen Elizabeth.

Meghan and Harry have somehow escaped the spotlight while in the states and have not commented on the rumors surrounding their stay.

Considering how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting a much-needed break from their busy royal schedule, it is safe to say that they are probably enjoying their stay in America.
