Queen Elizabeth II has set a precedent to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming move to another country.

Recent reports suggest that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be moving to Africa. According to former royal butler Grant Harrold, Queen Elizabeth II is unlikely to stop the said move.

“I don’t think the Royal Family would ever stop the younger royals doing what they want to do if it was something they decided they wanted to do and they had the support of the Royal Family and the Government, who knows?” Harrold told Sky News.

Harrold pointed out that the Queen did a similar thing before. He was referring to the years when Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip stayed in Malta.

“The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh did go out to Malta for a couple of years. So, it is possible,” Harry said this time referring to Prince Harry and Markle’s potential move to Africa.

Harrold hinted that there will be a lot of changes in the coming years as the young members develop their unique roles in the royal family. He also finds the time interesting as the new generation curate their roles, what they want to do, their charities and their passions. At the time, the younger royals are finding the things they want to be involved in.

Harrold also said that the move will only be temporary. According to Daily Mail’s royal correspondent Rebecca English, Prince Harry and Markle’s move will help ease the tension between them and Prince William and Kate Middleton.

In addition, this will be an opportunity for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to build their brand and fulfill Prince Harry’s dream of a secondment to Africa. English said that Prince Harry has always wanted to do a foreign sabbatical for many years to focus on education and environment issues.

In related news, Prince Harry joined Prince William, Middleton, Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family on Sunday to celebrate Easter and the monarch’s birthday. However, Prince Charles’ sons only added fuel to their rumored feud because they didn’t exert any effort to appear friendly toward each other.
