"In the documentary, Meghan talks about the grass always being greener, but there are logistics that come into play when you’re a member of the royal family," Arbiter explained on New Zealand talk show Breakfast. "Some of them are a little bit more obvious. So they move to South Africa, so who pays for their security there?"
"Yes, they’re both independently wealthy and they could support themselves there. But is the South African taxpayer suddenly paying for their security, or is the British taxpayer paying for that? Neither party are going to be particularly happy."
Although the royal couple's hopes of moving to South Africa aren't entirely unrealistic, they would have to make a major sacrifice to achieve their goal - giving up their royal privileges.
"Harry has long talked about his passion for the continent as a whole; he's clearly very happy there; he went there to heal following his mother’s death - it is somewhere they can spend a lot of time, but live there full-time?" Arbiter continued. "That’s just not going to be OK unless, of course, they renounce all of their royal privileges, their royal titles, everything to do with their life as a member of the royal family - I don’t see that happening, either."
Meghan made her first appearance since the documentary aired at the One Young World Summit opening ceremony in London on Tuesday evening where she paid sartorial tribute to Princess Diana in a long-sleeve purple dress from Aritzia.
It may be the last time we see the former actress for a while too, as the Sussexes are reportedly planning to take some well-deserved time away from the public eye with speculation rife that they are planning a six-week break from regal duties.
