Markle and Prince Harry of England have decided to stay away from Royal life and live independently without depending on the Queen or the Royal family.
This is a move to raise their own family and stay away from duties as official senior members of the Royal Family for a while.
The Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II in a statement said:
“Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family,”
Speaking in an interview, the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, said:
” There have been no conversations around the couple’s move to Canada.
There will be many discussions to come on how that works
But there’s still a lot of decisions to be taken by the Royal Family and by the Sussexes themselves as to what level of engagement they choose to have and these are things that we are supportive of.”
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess said
” Both Markle and Prince Harry are fond of Canada. The decision to base themselves in Canada reflects the importance of this Commonwealth country to both of them.”
It is not certain as to where the Duke and Duchess will settle in Canada. They both spent Christmas on Vancouver Island with their young son Archie.
The Duchess in an earlier interview said:
“We’ll explore new ravines and jaunt through new areas. I love how much green space there is tucked away — you wouldn’t expect that, and it reminds me of LA in a lot of ways.”
