The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have postponed their trip to the United States and Canada once again, this time reportedly out of concern that their baby will be too young to travel, says royal watcher Katie Nicholl.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had initially planned to make the trip to North America this spring, but then the duchess got pregnant, says Vanity Fair. The couple then pushed the trip back until fall of 2019, but now concerns over traveling with an infant have pushed the junket off until 2020.
A source close to the couple is reporting that the family Sussex will not be traveling overseas this year.
“As it stands, the Duchess of Sussex won’t be going away on an official overseas tour this year. That’s the word out of the Palace, although things might change. Right now we have been told that there won’t be any overseas travel before the end of the year because Baby Sussex will be too young.”
Considering that the baby has not been born yet, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reluctant to commit to a big tour at this point, though they are both eager to make the North American trip with the baby.
I’ve heard rumors that Prince William had an affair, and when Prince Harry didn’t like it, the other royals started a coverup campaign by blaming Meghan for the rift between brothers.

Royal Feud Explodes Into Public View Again as Palace Mulls Exile of Harry and Meghan
Why on earth would Kate and William choose to post a photograph excluding Meghan to mark the Queen’s 93rd birthday? Why would Harry not meet his brother’s eye? The feud is real.
Markle and Prince Harry are said to be thinking practically about the future, combining what is best for their family and for their roles as representatives of the United Kingdom. Though there has been a lot of buzz about the couple picking up stakes and moving to Africa, a source close to the two deny this, saying that it was never meant to be a total move to a new continent.
The Buckingham Palace source said it was always meant to be a series of trips as Commonwealth ambassadors and not a full move to Africa. The source also added that this was the idea of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and not something that was being thrust upon them.
Markle and the prince are still planning to make the U.K. and Frogmore Cottage their home base, but both are eager to have an “international profile,” according to a source close to the Sussexes, who are reportedly eager to do something significant.
