The Duke and Duchess of Sussex went on a tour of Africa

It’s time for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to step outside the United Kingdom. After the birth of their son, Archie, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry began their tour of Africa. Most prominently, the couple visited one of the major cities of South Africa, Cape Town, earlier this year.

“The rest of our lives, especially our life’s work, will be predominantly focused on Africa, on conservation,” The Duke of Sussex said during an interview with the Sunday Times of London. “There’s a lot of things to be done. There’s a lot of problems here, but there’s huge potential for solutions.”

The couple has currently returned to England and made an appearance at the WellChild awards in the Royal Lancaster Hotel. Still, some are left wondering if the royal couple could more to Africa, even creating another home in this continent.

Could the royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, build a home for themselves in the continent?

According to the Mirror, these two want to get out of the United Kingdom and into more philanthropy opportunities. According to this website, in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s documentary, the two will express their wish to move to the continent. Reportedly, Prince Harry said, “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 for us to be able to base ourselves.”

The Sun reports that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have their sights set on Botswana, one of the most stable countries in Africa. Prince Harry first visited this location shortly after his mother’s death in 1997.

“They would love to build a traditional bush lodge, constructed by locals, bringing work and trade to the land,” a source told The Mirror. “There has also been talk of a local school being built as well. Most importantly, they want somewhere where they have complete privacy and will not be disturbed.”

This is not the first time Prince Harry expressed interest in wildlife conservation in Africa

This is not the first trip a member of the royal family took to Africa. In fact, it’s far from the first. According to CNN, “Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, actually became queen while on a visit to Nairobi, Kenya.” This would, however, be the first time in recent years a royal couple would move to the continent for an extended period of time.

More information regarding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s possible decision to move will be announced in the coming weeks. Until then, the royal couple’s documentary premieres on Britain’s ITV this Sunday.
