The announcement of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family stunned the whole world.

In a matter of minutes, memes were shared on Twitter and the hashtag #Megxit went viral- followed with the re-definition of Meghan Markle’s name in modern urban times, turning her name into a verb and relating it to when someone walks away from a situation that isn’t helping them mentally or emotionally.

In short, there isn’t a lot that can shock the new media age; however, this particular decision was still something worth discussing. In their announcement, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said they wanted to be financially responsible, still tend to Her Majesty the Queen’s duties, while living in Canada. Many are debating their security in the country, with its Prime Minister Justin Trudeau questioning who’s gonna sort the couple’s security.

But what if they live in Dubai instead?

I mean, think about it.

The UK and UAE relations have had a strong connection since the reign of the late Sheikh Zayed, dating back decades. The UAE has an embassy in London while the UK has an embassy in Abu Dhabi and the friendship between the two includes supporting each other on an international level.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

If Justin Trudeau’s worried about their security in Canada, it’s highly doubtful that this would be an issue in Dubai

The crime rate is low, people rarely misplace their phones (not that this is a viable example) but overall everyone living in Dubai feels safe and protected. The Dubai Police and other governmental institutions work quick, and there’s no reason not to look after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, should they live here.

Not to mention, the city has recently been ranked as the 7th safest city in the world.

Although, running into the two at any local market would kind of feel surreal, wouldn’t it?

Hollywood celebrity Lindsay Lohan has revered Dubai for giving her privacy

Paparazzi are not welcome in Dubai, and people who take photos of anyone in public without their permission are subject to huge fines or even prison time- depending on the case, ideal in the case of a former royal couple who want to raise a family in private.

Since the two will be financially independent, Dubai could be the land of opportunities for the two

Since both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to give up on their royal duties, this means they won’t be receiving any public funds for those duties. Imagine the web of opportunities that the two could receive here.

Meghan could do a lot in terms of women empowerment, engaging with the culture and raising awareness while Harry could do philanthropic work, motivational speaking and anything else- with the support of the UAE, its leaders and people.

Weather, safety, no paps, *biased, but Dubai is ideal for the famous pair!

This special event, which has taken place every year since 1923 at the @RoyalAlbertHall, commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts.‬ • ‪This year’s Festival marked the 75th anniversary of a number of crucial battles of 1944, with a particular emphasis on the collaboration and friendship of the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies who fought them. A unique tribute was given to acknowledge those involved both past and present, culminating in a special parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944.‬ • ‪Their Royal Highnesses, who last year attended their first Festival of Remembrance together, were honoured to once again pay tribute to all casualties of war and remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.‬ ‪#FestivalOfRemembrance ‪#WeWillRememberThem‬ Photo © PA / Royal British Legion
