“I remember they just went to Abel Tasman National Park when we sat down and had a drink, and they said they could imagine living in a place like this and wondered if we thought it would be theoretically possible,” Reddy explained.
The Governor of New Zealand commented: ‘Of course we said yes. That would be good. There are many opportunities to live in New Zealand, but this is something you have to assess.’ Reddy adds that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been looking at how to raise their family and it is clear that they have made some decisions since then. .
