Meghan and Prince Harry 'plan to take six weeks off before Christmas'


Suggestions that the couple might make a move to Africa, where they recently embarked on a royal tour, have also been reignited, with Harry saying in a new documentary that Cape Town would be "an fantastic place" for the couple and baby Archie to live. So, the rest of our lives, our life's work will be predominatley focused on Africa, on conservation.

Harry and Meghan brought Archie with them to southern Africa several weeks ago on what marked the now-5-month-old baby's first royal tour.

Bradby said that although there has been some positive coverage, she has borne the brunt of negative reports, in particular about her family background and has had to deal with being accused of everything from "arrogance, to profligacy, to hypocrisy".

"I remember squeezing Meghan's hand so tight during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. We are, she said, taking it one day at a time", he wrote. The couple were praised by those who they met for being so down-to-earth. "And especially as a woman, it's a lot", Meghan says.

When asked how she was doing trying to battle the media, being a newlywed and motherhood, the Duchess replied: "Thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I'm okay, but it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes".

The media has also been hard for Harry to adjust to, as it prompts memories of his late mother, Princess Diana and her intense time in the spotlight.

He wrote: "I couldn't help but notice how incredibly exhausted, even burnt out, Harry looked".

"I think being part of this family, in this role, in this job... every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash, it takes me straight back, so in that respect it's the worst reminder of her life, as opposed to the best", he said. He wrote: "He has so often seemed at home here, but by this stage in the trip it was clear to me that the reality behind the scenes for both of them was a far cry from the fearless public faces". Meghan, visibly upset, then replies: 'Yes'. They plan to travel with him to the duchess' US homeland for the first time next month as part of a six-week break for the holidays, which they will also spend back home in the United Kingdom, the Sunday Times reported this weekend.

"The Duke and Duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time", a source told the outlet.
