Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced they're stepping back from their royal roles, many people have been left wondering what the couple will do for work. Part of the new arrangement means that they will become financially independent, in exchange for more privacy.

While Meghan has already been spotted making a start on her charity engagements in the couple's newly appointed country of residence, Canada, and could even make a return to acting, it appears that Harry has been harbouring a secret desire for a more "normal" career for some time. After all, this isn't the first time he's considered quitting life in the limelight entirely – following his stint serving in the armed forces (which was cut short after the press leaked his location during a tour abroad).

A source close to the royal family, journalist Rebecca English, who first met Harry back in Lesotho, South Africa, in 2006, says he often spoke to her about wanting to start afresh. "'I would love to just go and work as a tour guide, you know? Just go off into the bush and be me,’" she writes for the Daily Mail, quoting Harry himself.

To be fair, given the prince's love for the country, we could totally see him doing a role like this. Prior to his tour there last year with Meghan, Harry said, "On a personal note, I can’t wait to introduce my wife and son to South Africa! We’ll see all of you very soon."

Maybe he could start his own tour guide company over in Canada instead? Please keep your arms and legs inside of the car at all times etc. etc....
