  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will reportedly spend Thanksgiving in America this year.
  • Even more intriguing: Meghan and Harry are reportedly considering America as a potential relocation option.

    Good afternoon, royal spectators—I have the most delightful news. It's reported that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be coming to America in less than one month to celebrate Thanksgiving, meaning that the holiday when everyone stuffs their faces with every food known to man will suddenly be a major royal event.

    According to a People source, Meghan and Harry will be spending the holiday in Los Angeles so they can spend some "much-needed family time" with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland.

    “This would be Harry’s first Thanksgiving in the States,” the source said. “It will be nice for them to be around people that love them and have him understand her traditions too.”

    Meghan and Harry will be taking a whole six weeks off from their royal duties, starting in mid-November through to the end of the year. It's Meghan's first real time off this year, because she worked a lot during her maternity leave.

    This news comes amid several reports that claim Meghan and Harry are considering leaving the U.K. to live in either Canada or Africa, but now People is reporting that America is also an option for their "second base." "It’s not possible for them to be [in the U.K.] like this," a source added. "There’s more pressure now. There’s a shift that is happening."

    The source is likely alluding to the heightened royal tensions Meghan and Harry have experienced since Harry's formal announcement of his lawsuit against the British press, not to mention Harry and William growing apart ("on different paths," to quote Harry). Anyone with eyes can see that being in the limelight has been remarkably tough for Meghan—recently on ITV's documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Meghan tearfully said "yes" when asked if she struggles with feeling okay.
