According to the Sunday Times, the couple is planning an official tour of Africa with their child in the fall and the trip is scheduled to last for about two weeks in October, when their baby will be around six months old. Their proposed visit, requested by the government, is expected to focus on youth empowerment, education and conservation, the report said.
“They hope to take the baby with them but will make a decision nearer the time,” a royal source told the newspaper. “Potentially, Meghan and the baby could do some, if not all, of the trip.”
Buckingham Palace has not denied the report and had said in a statement, “Any future plans for the Duke and Duchess are speculative at this stage. No decisions have been taken about future roles. The Duke will continue to fulfill his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.”
The Sunday Times had quoted palace insiders as saying that an overseas role for the couple would last two or three years, and that any decision on where they would go was unlikely to be made until 2020. British network ITV disputed part of the report, saying that the role that is being discussed would see Harry and Meghan relocate to a Commonwealth country in Africa for a few months.
