"Harry was overcome with emotion from the moment he stepped in - admitting backstage that he was struggling to hold it all in as Meghan clearly showed off her tiny bump and he revealed how they were in the exact same position as a year ago just days away from announcing the pregnancy", the source says. So, the rest of our lives, our life's work will be predominatley focused on Africa, on conservation.
In a statement released towards the end of their tour of Southern Africa, Harry, 35, said, "Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences - a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son".
The couple attended the Well Child Awards in London last week, which celebrates the achievements of the country's seriously ill young people and those who go above and beyond to help. "So, you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed".
Harry, 35, added: "It's a very hard place to live when you know what's going on".
When Meghan was asked about the impact the intense public scrutiny has had on her "physical and mental health" and how Harry is being "protective" of her after what happened to his mother, she replied: "Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a new born - you know..."
Though the Duke of Sussex has said Africa "is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world", he is aware of the obstacles that stand his way.
Hearing Meghan Markle speak makes me emotional because what she's talking about is larger than being a member of the British Royal Family; it's about the way that media targets and treats prominent Black women.
The couple will be taking six weeks off from their royal duties over the Christmas period.
A royal source said: "The duke and duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time".
The couple are believed to take baby Archie to the USA in November to celebrate Thanksgiving in Los Angeles, where Meghan's mother Doria lives. They plan to travel with him to the duchess' USA homeland for the first time next month as part of a six-week break for the holidays, which they will also spend back home in the United Kingdom, the Sunday Times reported this weekend.
