Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have expressed their desire to live in another country, and they may finally have this opportunity because of Prince Charles.

During his trip to New Zealand this week, the heir to the throne met up with North Island leader Waihoroi Shortland. The latter urged the future King to make either Prince William or Prince Harry the next Governor-General of the region.

“Noble prince, you have two sons, grant that one of them may be a governor-general for us. Think upon it sir, your answer could be very, very important,” Shortland said.

As of late, Prince Charles has not given the North Island leader an answer. But if he chooses to appoint Prince Harry as the Governor-General of the region, the Duke of Sussex would have to spend a lot of time in New Zealand.

Since Prince Harry is married to Meghan Markle, and they have a 6-month-old son together, it is highly likely for the Duchess of Sussex and Archie to join him for his visits.

Throughout the past couple of weeks, there has been much talk surrounding Prince Harry and Markle’s future plans. There are rumors that the royal couple could leave the royal family. But according to royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should also renounce all of their privileges when they decide to leave the British clan.

“That’s just not going to be OK unless, of course, they renounce all of their royal privileges, their royal titles, everything to do with their life as a member of the royal family. I don’t see that happening, either,” she told New Zealand’s talk show “Breakfast.”

However, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express that Prince Harry and Markle won’t cease to be royals in the conventional sense. But what the royal couple could do is to reduce their royal duties while still doing good on a global scale.
