The royal couple is reportedly planning to relieve themselves from all the tabloid scrutiny they’ve endured in recent weeks with some necessary “family time” abroad. According to PEOPLE, Harry and Markle will enjoying a six-week getaway with time split in both the U.K. and the U.S. — and just in time for Thanksgiving! A royal insider told the outlet on Sunday (October 20): “The duke and duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time."
Word of the lovebirds’ holiday plans comes just days after the 38-year-old actress, who welcomed the pair’s firstborn, son Archie, back in May, opened up about the struggles of balancing royal life with motherhood. In a rare televised interview which appears in their upcoming documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, the Suits alum got emotional when asked how she’s been coping with life after welcoming her child.
"Any woman — especially when they are pregnant — you are really vulnerable, so that was made really challenging,” Markle admits in the clip. “And then when you have a newborn, and especially as a woman, it is a lot.”
"So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed, I guess thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I am OK," she continues, tearing up in the process. "But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind-the-scenes."
Elsewhere in the doc, Harry also hints at potentially relocating his family to Africa, which he believes would be “an amazing place” to raise their son. This is without a doubt due to the "ruthless" treatment Markle has suffered in England, which has since inspired the duo to take legal action against a myriad of British tabloids.
