Sources close to the Royal Family have revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan may spend four months a year living in South Africa following the birth of their first child. The Sun reports that the country is at the top of a shortlist of African nations where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to create a home starting as early as next year. “Harry and Meghan are very much engaged in these plans, although the move isn’t planned until next year or 2021,” an insider reveals. “The idea is they will spend between three and four months every year based in an African country, where they would work and then use it as a base for travel.” They add, “They have a vision of being ambassadors for the UK, representatives of the Commonwealth and pursuing the works and good causes they want to focus on.” While the Queen and Prince Charles are reportedly supportive of the plan, there are concerns related to the cost of the move and a potentially huge security bill for eight full-time police staff to relocate permanently with the couple.
