For months, the British royal family has been plagued by rumors about a gap between the homes of Cambridge and Sussex, with wives of Windsor Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle allegedly at war over significant personality differences.
Whispers have circulated that Prince Harry, Meghan and the newborn royal baby Archie Harrison are planning a move to a large number of distant destinations, including Africa and Australia, to escape life under the lens of the British press.
But new reports claim that the reason for their move is a completely different one.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hope to flee the “shadow” of their royal in-laws Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge and have established themselves in Los Angeles as their new home, says Express.co.uk.
In April, New Idea revealed that American-born Meghan longed to be closer to her mother Doria Ragland, who lives in California and would rather raise her first child in the United States.
“Harry and Meghan are seriously considering a life away from the royal family,” a source from Palace told New Idea.
“There are fears that they can flee to the US with the baby – and behind the palace walls there are serious crisis negotiations.
“The truth is that Meghan wants to go back and Harry just wants to make her happy.
“She misses acting and Harry thinks he can continue his philanthropic work in the US and even talked to Oprah about working together,” the insider added.
Regarding the reports, the Queen wants the Sussexes to move to Africa to look after the interests of the Crown, royal commentator Rob Shuter said on his iHeart radio show: “Meghan Markle is leaving Britain with her prince and baby. [She] refuses move to Africa, she wants to go to the US. “
Chatter about Africa began in April when Buckingham Palace sources claimed that Queen Elizabeth hoped to use “Harry and Meghan and this huge global attention they get” by placing them in a Commonwealth country such as Botswana, Namibia or Kenya.
According to Mr Shuter, former actress Meghan agreed on the African plan after her exuberant New York baby shower in February.
“After her baby shower in New York, Meghan knows she and Harry could do this, and if they did, they would become the unofficial king and queen of America,” Shuter said.
Earlier this week, Prince Harry and Meghan were absent from official events that marked US President Donald Trump’s visit to London, while the Duchess was still on maternity leave at Frogmore Cottage.
Of greater importance was the fact that Prince William and Kate Middleton were nowhere to be seen when the Trumps arrived at Buckingham Palace on Monday morning, where they were greeted by Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Despite the apparent bumbling, the Cambridges left their little ones Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at home in Kensington Palace to hold a state banquet on Monday evening for President Trump and his wife Melania.
To restore favor, the Trumps organized their own elegant dinner at Winfield House in London on Tuesday.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall represented Queen Elizabeth at the event, where Charles reportedly had a connection with Donald about their shared love for Californian wine.
President Trump and the future King of England seemed to share a joke as they stood together laughing for the photo at the entrance to the house.
Other guests who were invited to dinner were British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip, Minister of Foreign Affairs Jeremy Hunt and Minister Mark Sedwill of the cabinet.
