Harry: I don’t know where we could live in Africa at the moment
The Duke of Sussex told an ITV documentary it would be challenging to find a way to ‘make as much difference as we want’.
The Duke of Sussex has said Cape Town in South Africa would be an “amazing” place for his family to live but it could be challenging to find a way to “make as much difference” as they would want.
Harry, speaking to ITV presenter Tom Bradby about the work that he and wife Meghan will take on, added: “The rest of our lives’ work will be predominantly focused on Africa, on conservation.”
Harry told the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey: “I don’t know where we could live in Africa at the moment.
“We have just come from Cape Town – that would be an amazing place to be able to base ourselves, of course it would, but with all the problems that are going on there, I just don’t see how we would be able to really make as much difference as we want to without the issues and the judgment of how we would be with those surroundings.
“I think it is a very hard place to live when you know what is going on and then you are again slightly disconnected from it.”
The Duchess of Sussex, who gave birth to son Archie in May, also told the programme about her feelings of vulnerability during her pregnancy and as a new mother amid intense media scrutiny.
During the tour, Meghan and Archie stayed in South Africa, while Harry visited Malawi, Botswana and Angola, where he highlighted the anti-landmine work of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
As the tour ended, Harry and Meghan both brought separate legal actions against parts of the press.
Meghan is suing the Mail on Sunday for breach of privacy after it published a private letter between her and her estranged father.
Harry later filed his own proceedings at the High Court in relation to the alleged illegal interception of voicemail messages by journalists from the Sun, News of the World and Daily Mirror.
