Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are a royal couple who love to travel, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that their newborn baby has an exciting adventure planned already. There are new reports that say the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking to go on a two-week-long royal tour of Africa in the fall and of course, they are hoping to take their new bundle of joy with them.
According to Vogue, one source close to the royal couple says that they plan on bringing Baby Sussex everywhere with them, including on international and state trips. The insider said, “They hope to take the baby with them but will make a decision nearer the time. Potentially, Meghan and the baby could do some, if not all, of the trip.”
If Baby Sussex does end up going to Africa with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, this will make the baby the youngest tot in royal history to take a trip abroad. Prince William and Kate Middleton’s son Prince George currently holds that title, as he took his first trip abroad at just 8 months old. The tot accompanied his parents on an overseas trip to Australia and New Zealand back in 2014.

Previous reports have indicated that Meghan Markle plans on bringing her own sense of parenting that will reflect both American and royal traditions. Many royal critics believe that the Duchess of Sussex will find a way to merge both American and British parenting ideas to give her baby a very unique upbringing. As a matter of fact, royal observers say that Meghan wants to “bring her own sense of identity and her heritage” into the British royal family.
For the most part, the rest of the royal family doesn’t seem to mind the fact that Meghan Markle is rewriting some of the monarchy’s rules. That’s because her father-in-law Prince Charles believes that Meghan is “the best thing” to happen to his son, Prince Harry. Queen Elizabeth, meanwhile, is just pleased to see that her grandson is so in love and so happy with his American wife.
