A new video from the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey has emerged today, which shows Prince Harry discussing potentially leaving the UK one day to live in Africa.
In it, Prince Harry revealed that he and wife Meghan aren’t planning to relocate from Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, despite reports that suggest otherwise.
The reporter asks him, “Is this [Africa] part of your future do you think, do you intend to spend more time here, even live here perhaps for a while?”
“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.”
The royal father of one added, “It’s a very hard place to live when you know what’s going on. And then you’re sort of, again, slightly disconnected from it.”
Still, the Prince did confirm that he saw much of his future work taking place in Africa.
“The rest of our lives, especially for our life’s work, will be predominately focused on Africa — on conservation,” Harry said. “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 explained. “I feel incredibly fortunate for that.”
Africa is a very special place for both Harry and Meghan, as the Prince spent a lot of time there, having worked on multiple charities located here.
One such organization is Sentebale, which he founded to help young people affected by HIV in Botswana and Lesotho.
The two also sent time in Botswana on a romantic break in 2017 just before getting engaged.
