Having a baby isn’t slowing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex down when it comes to their travel plans. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are awaiting their first child and planning a handful of trips at the same time. Vanity Fair reports that Markle won’t be making an overseas trip this year and that their tour of the United States and Canada has been delayed, but that doesn’t mean they're shutting down all of their travel plans: According to news from the royal family’s sources, they may be spending quite a lot of time in Africa after the newborn arrives.

Earlier in the month, The Sunday Times shared that Sir David Manning—former British ambassador to the US—has been working on an international job posting for Prince Harry that would give the couple some time away from the UK while raising their addition. The role, according to the report, would be a combination of charity work and UK promotion. A source shared with Vanity Fair that the job would more likely require frequent trips as opposed to one long stint in the same location.

Lesotho is one of the first places the couple is expected to visit, with Botswana and South Africa also ranking high on their list of places to go. As Vanity Fair reminds us, Botswana is where Sentebale, Prince Harry’s charity, is based.

This role would be an important step in giving the couple an international platform, something not all members of the royal family has access to if they aren’t willing to put in the miles. While there are many details that have yet to be shared, one thing is for sure: Prince Harry and Markle aren’t planning to cut back on miles flown once their child is born.
