Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will finally get some much sought-after time away from the UK. It is said that the two spend the holiday with Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland. Although they are probably happy about the much needed break, the couple's safety will be the biggest problem during their travels – even if it is not a royal commitment, the couple will take a very high profile trip across the pond.
Meghan and Harry could use a break from the UK.
Ever since Meghan and Harry got married, they have been chased by the paparazzi for every step. Specifically, Meghan can't seem to take a break from the negative medium. When she first joined the royal family, the press dug into the Duchess's family life, revealing her troubled relationship with her father and half-siblings. Then there were rumors that she did not go with Kate Middleton, she was rude to her staff and she had no concerns about royal rules and traditions. Now, the duke and the duchess clap back to the media; they have brought charges against three major British tabloids. Of course, they could spend some time away from the UK
The couple is reportedly spending time with Meghan's mother
A royal family spokeswoman confirmed earlier this month that Meghan and Harry will be spending time away from royalty during the holidays. Normally, the royal family spends Christmas at Sandringham, Queen Elizabeth's estate in Norfolk, but Meghan and Harry are doing things a little differently this year. The decision got the Queen's approval and Harry and Meghan instead come to the US to spend the holiday with Meghan's mother. Doria lives in California, but it's unclear right now if this is where Harry and Meghan will go.
Details are not released in an attempt to protect the couple's safety
Although Meghan and Harry probably already know their exact vacation plan, the public will not be informed. As this is not a royal commitment, it is perfectly understood that the Duke and Duchess want to keep quiet about their whereabouts. "For security reasons, we will not provide further information on their schedule at this time," the spokesman told the media. Although Meghan and Harry travel in their spare time, security measures are probably just as intense as when traveling for a royal purpose. But there is now also the larger issue of privacy as they do not want to be disturbed in their free time.
