For months the British royal family has been plagued by rumours of a rift between the Houses of Cambridge and Sussex, with wives of Windsor Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle reportedly at war over significant differences of personality.
Whispers have been doing the rounds that Prince Harry, Meghan and newborn royal baby Archie Harrison are planning a move to a variety of far flung destinations including Africa and Australia to escape life under the lens of the British press.
But new reports claim the reason for their relocation is an entirely different one.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are hoping to flee the "shadow" of their royal in-laws Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, and have settled on Los Angeles as their new home, Express.co.uk says.
In April, New Idea revealed American-born Meghan longs to be closer to her mother Doria Ragland who lives in California and would prefer to raise her first child in the United States.
"Harry and Meghan are seriously considering a life away from the royal family," a Palace source told New Idea.
"There are fears that they could flee to the US with the baby - and there are serious crisis talks happening behind palace walls about it.
“The truth is, Meghan wants to go back and Harry just wants to make her happy.
"She misses acting and Harry thinks he can continue his philanthropic work in the US and has even been talking to Oprah about working together,” the insider added.
As for reports the Queen wants the Sussexes' to relocate to Africa to promote the Crown's interests, royal commentator Rob Shuter said on his iHeart Radio Show: "Meghan Markle is leaving Britain with her Prince and baby. [She] refuses to move to Africa, she wants to come to the USA."
Chatter about Africa began in April when sources inside Buckingham Palace claimed Queen Elizabeth hoped to "harness Harry and Meghan and this tremendous global attention they get" by placing them in a Commonwealth country like Botswana, Namibia or Kenya.
According to Mr Shuter, former actress Meghan vetoed the African plan after her lavish New York baby shower in February.
"After her baby shower in New York, Meghan knows she and Harry could do this, and if they did do this, they would become the unofficial king and queen of America," Mr Shuter said.
Earlier this week Prince Harry and Meghan were absent from official events marking American President Donald Trump's visit to London, with the Duchess still on maternity leave at Frogmore Cottage.
Of greater note was the fact Prince William and Kate Middleton were nowhere to be seen when the Trumps arrived at Buckingham Palace on Monday morning, where they were greeted by Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Despite the apparent snub, the Cambridges left their little ones Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at home in Kensington Palace to make an appearance at a state banquet for President Trump and wife Melania on Monday night.
To return the favour, the Trumps hosted their own elegant dinner at Winfield House in London on Tuesday.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall represented Queen Elizabeth at the event, where Charles reportedly bonded with Donald over their shared love of California wine.
President Trump and the future King of England seemed to share a joke as they stood laughing together at the entrance of the house for photos.
Other guests invited to the dinner included British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Cabinet Secretary Mark Sedwill.
