The Real Reason Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Visiting The U.S. Over Thanksgiving
It’s no secret that Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are having a rough time as of late. Even before the Sussexes wed in May 2018 — the British press did everything in their power to pry into Markle’s life and shame her for every single decision that she made. It also didn’t help that her father and her estranged siblings continued talking to the press — spewing lies about her.
Typically, when rumors float around about the British Royal Family, they remain silent. It’s a tradition to give the press a “stiff upper lip” until they find the next scandal to latch on to. Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William just did this last spring when rumors swirled that the future Crowned King had been having an affair with the duchess’ friend and neighbor, Rose Hanbury.
However, the Sussexes, who are trying to modernize the royal family, are shoving all of that “tradition” to the side. The prince has made several pronouncements about protecting his wife from the press and he has recently filed a lawsuit again several publishers for privacy infringement. Also, in a recent ITV documentary, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, the prince, and the duchess got candid about the toll of being in the spotlight. Now, it’s been reported that the royal couple will take several weeks off around Thanksgiving to spend some time in the United States with Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland. However, it might be more to this trip than what meets the eye.
This is the real reason Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are visiting the U.S. for six weeks
Shortly after their whirlwind Royal Tour in Africa, a royal insider told the Sunday Times, “The Duke and Duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time.”
Though Markle adores her hometown of Los Angeles and her mother, there are other reasons for this trip. The insider revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are considering the United States as their “second base.”
Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle being ousted from the British Royal Family?
Though the Sussexes aren’t being “put out” of the British Royal Family, it is said that the royal family and their staff have major concerns about the young couple’s approach to being royal. An insider told The Sun, “There’s an acceptance that things haven’t worked out with the Sussexes full-time in Windsor so they could have a second base in America.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also considering an African country as their home base
The continent of Africa is also near and dear to the prince and the duchess. Now, there are rumors that a base there might afford them the privacy that they crave. In Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Prince Harry said,
The rest of our lives, especially our life’s work will be predominantly focused on Africa, on conservation. 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, of course, it would. But with all the problems that are going on there, I just don’t see how we would be able to really make as much difference as we’d want to.
We just hope they’re happy and safe wherever they may go.
