The palace responds after Harry and Meghan's potential move to Africa is leaked

Buckingham Palace has said that plans for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to move abroad are purely speculative.

It was reported yesterday that the royal couple are looking at moving to Africa.

A source told the Sunday Times that an advisor for Harry is drawing up plans for a "bespoke role" for him and Meghan "probably in Africa" to promote Britain and the Commonwealth.

The role will utilise the couple's "rock star" status, the report states.

"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."

In response, Buckingham Palace said that no decision had yet been made.

"Any future plans for the Duke and Duchess are speculative at this stage," a spokesperson told Hello magazine.

"No decisions have been taken about future roles. The Duke will continue to fulfil his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador."

The move is still very much an idea rather than a fact, then - but it would make sense for the couple.

Africa is a place that's very dear to Prince Harry.

He spent time there with his father Charles and brother William in the time after his mother Diana's death in 1997.

The Prince reportedly brought Meghan there after just two dates in 2016 and the couple returned there for another holiday in 2017.

Harry also sourced diamonds from Botswana for Meghan's engagement ring.
