Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were planning a trip to Africa before they left their positions as senior Royals.
The 88-year-old naturalist Dame Jane Goodall, a lifelong personal friend of The Duke of Sussex, stated that Harry was determined to raise son Archie “running barefoot with African youngsters,” according to the Daily Mail.
The relationship between Prince Harry and Dame Jane Goodall is well-known. Dame Jane Goodall discussed meeting and snuggling Archie in an interview for the British Vogue edition that Meghan edited in 2019.
Since coming to the United States, Harry and Meghan have faced criticism for their views about the Royal Family, and the impending publication of Prince Harry’s book, Spare, has generated concern in the family.
The Dame refused to address these problems in her most recent interview with The Times.
In 2019, Harry’s advisers reportedly designed a “bespoke” career for Prince Harry that would have allowed the couple to be located in Africa.
According to The Sunday Times, a committee led by Sir David Manning, a former British ambassador to the United States, devised the proposal, which called for charity work, promotion of Britain, and some work on behalf of the Commonwealth.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were expected to play a unique role in Africa even after the birth of their first child, according to royal courtiers. But those plans fell through, and the couple eventually left their job and moved to California, where they now live with their children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, as well as their spouses.
Due to his many visits to the continent, Harry is considered to have a strong attachment to it. His ex-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, is from Zimbabwe.
Prince Seeiso of Lesotho and Harry co-founded Sentebale in 2006 as a charity organization devoted to aiding neighborhood children in need.
The name, which in Sesotho translates to “forget-me-not,” stands for a promise to keep in mind the area’s most defenseless children.
Meghan would also have a tremendous love for Africa given that she is 43% Nigerian, as she revealed on her podcast Archetypes.
