2. Harry & Meghan Move To Africa?

It is the exclusive that has surprised Royal fans. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly being moved to Africa. The move is seen as both utilising the couple’s global influence as well as hoping to subdue rumours of a feud between The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
