He went on: “It’s possible at the moment, I think, to look at what they said, and Meghan essentially saying they’re really only existing and not enjoying life.
“Which opens up the door to them choosing a different life in future, I think.

“And it looks to me almost as if they ‘re creating a narrative that will allow them to justify doing exactly that at a later point.
“Saying look, our lives were made hell , we were just so unhappy, we were better off getting out of it and going to live in Los Angeles, or the alternative would be Africa. ”
Mr Myers agreed, saying: “I th ink they’ve laid the foundations, no doubt in my mind. ”

“The option of a halfway house, if you like, living in Africa – I just don’t see how that would work.
