IMO this is not a good idea and I also don't think this is the Sussexes plan

Meghan is applying to be a citizen. How can she move to Africa for 3 years? Also why is William’s private secretary involved in this? This is just dumb but fascinating that it was leaked.

My thoughts exactly. She has her citizenship application, they just remodeled Frogmore Cottage and her patronages. I don't think this is any of the Sussexes doing as they don't have any permanent staff to discuss this. Why are William's staff so involved? 🤔

LaRae
She's feminist like the Duchess of Cornwall, CP Mary is or Queen Maxima at the UN, supporting unexciting real-life problems. Really it seems more about equal opportunity for women and girls than "burning your bra type rabid feminist a la Germaine Greer in her heyday.

This sounds like one of those stories concocted to ferret out loose lips.

It is from The Sunday Times from Roya Nikkhah. This writer has a direct line to KP so make of that what you will.

Meghan's citizenship status makes moving abroad impractical.

I agree. This makes no sense and like I said, i don't think this the Sussexes idea.

I have so many questions and concerns about this article, but I'm trying to me kind right now. Instead of stating that the OPTICS of this piece by Roya Nikkah is not a good one for either her or KP or William.

Doesnít the article say this ďplanĒ originated with Sir David Manning and the Queenís former private secretary Lord Christopher Geidt?

Hmm. Well, I can see why Harry and Meghan might like to get away and carve out a bit of a life for themselves without living in a fishbowl, and I can see where royal advisors might like to harness H and M's energy and charisma, but I'm having a hard time taking this proposal seriously. If this were a serious proposal, wouldn't it be coming from BP rather than KP?

Unless they fast track Meghan’s citizenship not practical.

It doesn’t even sound like it’s from the Sussexes from the article. It’s full of the courtiers, David Manning and Simon Case. Umm... fascinating.

And again, Meghan is applying for citizenship.

I agree, unless this is something that Harry and Meghan have proposed and would like to do, which I could understand. There's still the citizenship issue, but I suppose that could be solved.

Sir David Manning was part of KP. Lord Geidt has been part of the discussion according to the article, but itís apparently Simon Case who is pivotal. Iím not sure why is Williamís Private Secretary so up in the Sussex business. Itís not even KP business anymore.

Calling the plan the "African scheme" was not an ideal phrasing. Bad optics.

Inside the rift between Harry and Meghan and the future king and queen

Courtiers are concerned by the gulf between Harry and Meghan’s modern ways and those of the future king and queen. Would a spell abroad for the Sussexes suit William and Kate?
That article makes William look bad.
