Prince Harry also spoke out about the change yesterday evening, candidly revealing, “this role has taught me more about what is right and just than I could have ever imagined,” adding, “we are taking a leap of faith – thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step”.

And while many royal fans have been left speculating as to what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will go on to do with their lives next, one source has revealed a secret desire that Prince Harry has held onto for years.

The royal expert revealed that the Duke often talked about wanting a fresh start in his life, admitting, “I would love to just go and work as a tour guide, you know? Just go off into the bush and be me”.

Prince Harry has often spoken of his love for the country, expressing his excitement back in September when he took wife Meghan and son Archie along with him to visit.
