Following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s recent trip to South Africa, there’s been a lot of chatter regarding whether the royal couple has plans to move to the Motherland someday. In ITV’s new documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, the Duke of Sussex addressed those rumors.
“Africa has held me in an embrace that I will never forget,” Prince Harry said. However, he’s not sure exactly where in Africa they would live so it’s likely they won’t be making a move any time soon.
“I don’t know where we could live in Africa at the moment,” he said. “We just came from Cape Town, that would be an amazing place to base ourselves, of course, it would. But with all the problems that are going on there, I just don’t see how we’d be able to really make as much difference as we’d want to without the issues and the judgment of how we would be with those surroundings.”
Despite the family not having plans to move any time soon, they are still determined to continue giving back to the continent.
“The rest of our lives, especially for our life’s work, will be predominately focused on Africa — on conservation,” says Harry. “There are 19 more countries across this continent. There’s a lot of things to be done. There’s a lot of problems here.”
“Ever since I came to this continent as a young boy, trying to cope with something I can never possibly describe, Africa has held me in an embrace that I will never forget,” he added. “I feel incredibly fortunate for that.”
