Queen Elizabeth reportedly would’ve put her foot down in the old days when it came to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s desire to break royal traditions.

But at the age of 93, the monarch is not prepared to put up a fight with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. An insider recently told The Telegraph that Her Majesty would’ve done something about Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to move to Africa and possibly stay there for three years.

“In the old days, the Queen would have put her foot down. But at her age, and with the Duke of Edinburgh now retired from public life, they haven’t really got the energy to put up a fight,” the source said.

Plans for Markle and Prince Harry to move Africa are reportedly in their early stages. The move will be done so that the royal couple could take a break from their ongoing tensions with Prince William and Middleton. They also wish to harness their popularity globally.

“There are discussions in palace circles about: how do we harness Harry and Meghan? How do you harness this phenomenon that has emerged? You make it productive,” a source said.

However, a spokesperson for the palace denied the reports that Markle and Prince Harry would move to another country following their birth of their baby. The spokesperson also said that there have been no discussions about the Royals’ future roles.

Meanwhile, Markle also made headlines this week after it was revealed that her baby will have a very different childhood from her. Other than being raised in London, Baby Sussex is also part of the royal family. Markle, on the other hand, grew up in Los Angeles and was raised by her parents, Thomas Markle Sr. and Doria Ragland.

Baby Sussex will also have a pretty public life, unlike its mom that grew up in a very private home. It was only when Markle became an adult that she gained popularity because she starred in “Suits.”
