Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Are Considering Moving To A 'Private Island' Or 'South Africa' After Their Frogmore Cottage Eviction, Source Claims
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry might be disappointed by the news that they have to vacate Frogmore Cottage, but it appears as though the couple has their heart set on a better replacement. According to a source, the duo hinted they're looking to purchase a private island.
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are developing their Archewell brand, it is imperative that they can grow their audience and maintain a level of admiration.
"The situation is rapidly becoming uncomfortable to the point of untenable," the insider shared in an interview. "There are talks of keeping base in L.A. and heading somewhere new like Canada, South Africa or one of the other countries where they have more popularity and public sympathy."
"There's money to be made abroad and it fits their vision of global success," the source added. "Harry loved the idea of living in a natural and eco-friendly environment — he's pushing hard to go down the private island route."
The Sussexes contemplating life in a lush habitat wouldn't come as a surprise to fans or critics. Harry has been traveling to South Africa throughout his life, and he currently serves as the President of African Parks. The non-profit organization — which is headquartered in Johannesburg — manages and protects national parks throughout Africa.
In their docuseries Meghan and Harry, it was revealed that the Sussexes considered moving to the country prior to purchasing an estate in Montecito. However, there had been rumors about the parents' international house hunt for years.
OK! reported last November that Jane Goodall believed that the prince was interested in his son growing up in the southern region of the continent. "He wanted to bring Archie up in Africa, running barefoot with African children," the anthropologist told an outlet.
Harry's attachment to Mzansi stems from Princess Diana's own love of the commonwealth. While honoring Nelson Mandela at the U.N. in New York City, on Monday, July 18, he shared that the location has kept him grounded and tied to Diana.
"For most of my life, it has been my lifeline, a place where I found peace and healing time and time again," Harry said during his speech. "It's where I felt closest to my mother and sought solace after she died, and where I knew I had found a soulmate in my wife."
