Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, arrive to meet Graca Machel, the widow of the late Nelson Mandela, in Johannesburg, South Africa on Oct. 2.
Harry told a British broadcaster that he feels “more like myself” in Africa, adding that Cape Town would be an “amazing place for us to be able to base ourselves,” the Sunday Times of London reported Saturday.
“The rest of our lives, especially our life’s work, will be predominantly focused on Africa, on conservation,” said the prince. “There’s a lot of things to be done. There’s a lot of problems here, but there’s huge potential for solutions.”
Harry, 35, has also said that his grief for his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales is a “wound that festers… every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash”.
Meghan, 38, said it had been a struggle to cope “on top of just trying to be a new mum or trying to be a newlywed . . . and especially as a woman..”
She added that “not many people have asked if I’m OK.”
