The Duke and Duchess of Sussex considered going to New Zealand

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex considered going to New Zealand

Patsy Reddy, Queen Elizabeth II’s representative in New Zealand, revealed in an interview Associated Press Prince Harry and Megan of Sussex talked to him about the possibility of visiting their country during an official visit in 2018, almost a year before the couple left for the United States.

“I remember when we sat down and drank they went to Abel Tasman National Park and they said they could imagine living in this place and they wondered if we thought it was theoretically possible,” Reddy explained.

The Governor of New Zealand commented: “Of course we said yes. That would be nice. There are many opportunities to live in New Zealand, but you have to evaluate it. Reddy says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were looking at how they could raise their family and then apparently made some decisions.

However, Queen Elizabeth II’s representative did not see this as a formal one, but as an informal discussion seemed to be mainly influenced by the couple’s contact with foreigners and New Zealanders.

In addition, during the interview they gave it to Oprah Winfrey in early 2021, saying that they had offered the royal family a step back from their corporate obligations in a Commonwealth country like South Africa or New Zealand, but finally Prince Harry and Megan of Sussex moved to the United States after living in Canada for a few months.
