A royal expert has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had an "agenda from the outset" of their relationship to become "roving royals".

Speaking with 9Honey, Katie Nicholl said it was "inevitable" that the pair would move overseas, but added that the speed in which they've done it has "surprised everybody".

"I was told from a very early stage in their courtship, they had told a friend of Harry's that Meghan met quite early on that they wanted to international roving royals and that was going to be their focus,” Katie said.

The royal expert added that the couple, who now live in Los Angeles with their son Archie, "didn't want to be stuck in one place" and wanted to make a difference "on a world stage".

She said it wasn't "a huge surprise" and that there were signs quite early on that they would attempt to do things differently.

"They had an agenda from the outset – to be international royals," Katie said.

"If you look at not just the first two years of married life but Archie's first birthday has only just been celebrated and if you look at what's happened within his short life span, it's been pretty epic," she added.

It comes after a friend of Harry's revealed the former senior royal is finding life "a bit challenging" at the moment.

Famous primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, who is known for her efforts in trying to protect chimpanzees from extinction, has hinted that maybe life in the US isn’t going to plan for the couple.

“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but, yes, I’ve been in touch – though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging right now,” the 86-year-old told the Radio Times.
