It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

It’s quite a busy time for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle right now. They are preparing for the birth of their first child and apparently contemplating a major move. Two reporters with The Sunday Times, Tim Shipman and Roya Nikkhah, said, “Courtiers have drawn up plans to hand the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a major international job that could see them moving abroad after the birth of their child.”

The royal couple’s destination? The Sunday Times reports that it would likely be Africa!

A source who spoke to the paper said, “Discussions are at an early stage, but the plan is to find a new way of using their soft power abilities, most likely in Africa.” Sir David Manning, the former British ambassador to the U.S. and special adviser on constitutional and international affairs to both Prince Harry and Prince William, is in charge of the plan.

Insiders speculate the big move would occur sometime in 2020. Reportedly, the couple wouldn’t stay there forever. The family would live in Africa for two or three years. While there they would continue their charitable initiatives and promote the United Kingdom. A source told The Sunday Times said, “There have been various ideas floated for them to take on a job abroad, such as governor-general of Australia or Canada, wherever.”

Meghan and Harry have a connection to Africa, They fell in love during a trip to Botswana in 2016 and spent their honeymoon in East Africa. The palace, however, is remaining tight-lipped about any concrete plans. Kensington Palace officials released a statement saying, “Any future plans for the Duke and Duchess are speculative at this stage. No decisions have been taken about future roles. The Duke will continue to fulfill his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.”

The statement is not in any way a straight up denial to the claim. They could be moving anywhere, maybe it’s all just rumor and won’t turn into anything. Either way, there is a big, bright future brewing for the family and we’re all excited to watch their family’s adventures!
