It’s early days yet, but sources confirm to BAZAAR.com that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex indeed plan to take on new projects overseas to develop their senior roles within the Commonwealth. But while reports claim their work will tie in with a move abroad lasting up to three years, those close to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan tell a different story. “Britain is their home and where they want to raise their family,” says a friend of the couple. “If they are to work abroad it would be a short stint.”
Rumors of a move began on April 21 after a British newspaper broke the news that senior courtiers—including international affairs advisor to Prince William and Prince Harry, Sir David Manning; and Lord Geidt, chairman of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust—are currently developing plans for the couple to take on a “bespoke” role overseas after the imminent birth of their first child.
