- Rumors regarding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moving to Africa have been swirling in recent weeks.
- A friend of the couple recently told BAZAAR.com, "If they are to work abroad it would be a short stint."
- Royal commentator Roya Nikkhah has now revealed that the royal baby is "set for royal crawlabout in Africa" in around six months time.
Meghan Markle's due date is thought to be in late April or early May 2019, meaning that the royal baby could arrive any day now. And according to The Sunday Times, Prince Harry and Meghan's baby already has some very exciting plans ahead.
Royal reporter Roya Nikkhah has revealed that plans are apparently being put in place for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to undertake a royal tour in Africa in 2019. Rather than moving there for an extended period of time as was previously rumored, the royals are reportedly planning a short trip, along with Baby Sussex.
According to Nikkhah in The Sunday Times, "the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are already planning their first overseas trip with their child: an official tour of Africa in the autumn." The publication continues, "The baby, who is expected to arrive any day now, would become one of the youngest royals to go on an official tour." As fans excitedly await the arrival of Meghan's first baby, the couple's royal tour news is likely to be a welcome revelation.
A royal source also revealed to The Sunday Times that Meghan and Harry "hope to take the baby with them but will make a decision nearer the time. Potentially, Meghan and the baby could do some, if not all, of the trip."
Discussing the future royal trip on Twitter, Nikkhah writes that Meghan and Harry's "African tour is planned for October, when their baby will be around 6 months old. Commonwealth nations will be on the itinerary, linking with Harry and Meghan’s @queenscomtrust roles, youth empowerment, education and conservation will be the focus":
Nikkhah notes that Prince George went on his very first royal tour to "Australia and New Zealand in 2014 when he was eight months."
Basically, the royal baby is already set to have a very busy year.
