Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are planning on leaving the UK as the Duchess is not prepared to live in Kate Middleton’s shadow, sources close to the couple claim.
Royal commentator Rob Shuter said Meghan was “not happy coming in second place” and is weighing up moving stateside.
It comes amid growing rumours the pair are increasingly at odds with Wills and Kate, having already distanced themselves from the Royal Foundation they set up as a foursome.
Mr Shuter said: “Sources tell me within the Royal Family there’s been a lot of talk about Prince Harry and Meghan temporarily moving to Africa, but that isn’t going to happen because Meghan is planning to return to America with her baby and her prince.
They add that moving away from Kate and William is that goal.”
He continued: “Meghan knows if she stays in Britain, this will always mean living in their shadow.
Meghan is not the type of girl who is happy coming in second place.”
Buckingham Palace insiders believed Harry and Meghan did consider moving to a Commonwealth country in Africa after little Archie was born.
But, according to Mr Shuter, the plans were put on hold after curiosity grew following Meghan’s baby shower in New York.
He continued: “After her baby shower in New York, Meghan knows she and Harry could do this, and if they did do this, they would become the unofficial King and Queen of America.”
The expert’s speculation continues the rumour of a feud between the two duchesses.
It comes amid an awkward few days during Donald Trump’s visit after the US president branded Meghan “nasty”.
He later clarified his comments, claiming he did not mean to offend the American Royal.
