    I was pulled out by my foot - literally. I’ll spare you the details but suffice it to say my poor mother was never the same again :(.

    Sounds like the royal family was doing all they could to accommodate them, but they just keep getting out of line. Constantly seeking publicity for themselves, generating negative news stories about Prince William and Kate, etc. They have even tried to upstage the Queen, Princess Eugenie, etc.

    Revealed: palace’s Africa plan for Harry and Meghan

    Perhaps they can live in Frogmore after they return. It seems even more unusual this decision is being announced before the birth of their child.

    I do not get the impression at all that they are moving to Africa. The article is about how best to utilize them because of their huge popularity.

    The article in the Sunday Times says they're moving to Africa

    The ongoing problems with staff leaving due to poor treatment and the negative stories planted in the press and gossip pages about Prince William and Kate are getting to be too much, JMO. They were very unhappy with being given the renovated home at Frogmore Cottage. They ended up demanding extra expenditure for triple paned windows to keep out the noise of aircraft flying overhead. Prince Andrew lives out there, as well as the Queen and it doesn't seem to be a problem for them. Maybe things will calm down after a few years out of the relentless media spotlight.

    News out of Australia today..it’s been mooted for some time about Prince Harry being our Governor General however I can not see that happening.

    “Palace officials considered a proposal to make Prince Harry the Governor-General of Australia, according to a British newspaper report.
    “There have been various ideas floated for them to take on a job abroad, such as governor-general of Australia or Canada,” the newspaper reported a “close confidant of the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex” had confided.

    However these ideas were rejected, as “senior royals are not civil servants”.

    Instead the palace is now considering a plan to give Harry and Meghan a “major international job… probably in Africa, that will combine some work on behalf of the Commonwealth along with charity work and a role promoting Britain”.

    Hi there PI, I recall many years ago the talk about Prince Charles being our governor-general. I like having appropriate Aussies being our G-G.

    Hehe...we are still “colonials” to royalty. It will never happen and yes we have many suitable Aussies to suit GG.

    It sounds like a diversion from the baby being born.
    It might be days old already.
