Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly are causing too much drama for Buckingham Palace and may make Africa their semi-permanent residence as a result, according to a new report by Page Six‘s Cindy Adams.
Adams claimed that Meghan and Harry are not well-liked by the British public but treated like rock star royalty. The veteran gossip reporter then claimed her sources said Prince Harry and Markle “might get shipped to Africa as their semi-permanent home.”
Adams recalled another scandalous royal couple from the past whose circumstances were eerily similar to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and were also sent far away from London when they caused too much drama. She explained that in the 1930s, the abdicated Duke of Windsor’s divorced American wife was too much for the royals to handle. As a result, the couple quietly moved to the Bahamas and set up their home there, effectively removing them from the day-to-day life of the stalwart clan.
While the information regarding the couple’s move has not been officially confirmed by the palace, Adams reported she has it on good authority that all of the major changes that have occurred since Markle’s arrival into the family have brought undue stress to the upper-crust clan.

???????????????????????????????? Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund (@TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars! These collars allow the team at EWB to track the elephants, as well as to learn their essential migratory patterns to keep their corridors safe and open so future generations of elephants can roam freely. In honour of this amazing support, EWB have named their most recently collared Elephant...ELLEN! We can’t wait to see where she will go! ???? Two years ago on World Elephant Day, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined Dr Chase to help in this conservation effort. Below, a few words from Mike and his partner Kelly at EWB: • ‘Today is a day to honor and celebrate the majestic elephant and to make a strong stand for conserving and protecting one of the world’s most beloved animals. elephants are intelligent, sentient beings capable of emotions from joy to grief. They are ‘environmental engineers,’ a key-stone umbrella species, and the fight to save them is in effect, a fight to save entire ecosystems and all wildlife. Today elephants are facing many challenges; habitat loss and competition for resources creates conflict with humans, climate change and fires destroy much needed resources and poaching for the demand of ivory makes elephants bigger targets than ever. African elephants are especially prone to human-wildlife conflict because of their large home ranges. Finding, preserving and creating elephant corridors is therefore of great importance in helping to maintain habitats suitable for movement and minimising human-elephant conflict. Corridors are a mitigation technique to better the livelihoods of local communities and the elephants themselves, by providing environment and ample space for wildlife to navigate from one habitat patch to another, without affecting the livelihoods of communities.’ • EWB - Dr Mike Chase, Ms Kelly Landen . ???? by DOS © SussexRoyal Additional photos: EWB
Some of Markle’s most major push-backs include her insistence on shaking up the traditional royal wedding ceremony with African-inspired touches, an homage to her heritage and unlike anything the royal family had ever seen before in their history. The couple announced Markle’s pregnancy as the twosome jetted off on their first official royal assignment to Australia before they could answer questions from the press. Then, it was the duo’s decision to move away from the royal family to Frogmore Cottage, roughly 25 miles outside of London and away from the rest of the clan, including Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, that initiated rumors that something was amiss in the family.
As for Harry and Meghan’s relationship with William and his wife, while the foursome initially worked together on several notable public projects promoting mental health, it was soon revealed that Markle and Harry would form their own partnership and would leave behind their work with William and Kate. The couple soon created their own Instagram page where they could push forward their own royal agenda and promote their projects and causes away from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

This afternoon, His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex shared the news of the arrival of his and the Duchess’ first born child. Their son was born early morning on the 6th of May, 2019 and weighs 7lbs and 3oz. Their Royal Highnesses thank you for your support and kindness during this exceptionally joyful time in their lives as they welcome their baby boy.
When Markle was ready to give birth, it was revealed that she would not head to a favorite royal hospital and partake in the display of her child within the first hours after delivery, something her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, and sister-in-law both participated in. Rather, the date of the baby’s arrival was kept secret, and it was announced that Markle was in labor after she had already given birth. The arrival of the couple’s first son, Archie, was announced later that same day, but at that point, the infant was almost one day-old.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
Markle and Harry have been criticized for their extravagant use of personal jets while expounding on saving the environment, causing celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Pink, and Elton John to clap back at the couple’s critics on social media.
So while it might be possible that the palace initially announced the couple’s first royal trip to Africa, with son Archie, in September as a goodwill trip, it could very well be hiding another meaning if Adams’ story is correct, and they might be house-hunting as well. Time will tell if the Page Six rumors are indeed true.
