Madonna encourages Harry and Meghan to ditch 'boring' Canada

Saturday, 08 Feb, 2020

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance since shaking up Britain's royal family in a move dubbed "Megxit" last month. According to reports, the couple is renting a multi-million dollar home on Vancouver Island. The pictures also feature a sign that reads "no trespassing".

The couple - who have stepped back from royal duties and now live in Canada - said on Instagram they were "sending our very best" to their Kiwi followers.

Miles Arsenault, who runs charters from nearby Deep Cove, described the duchess as "sweet, real and sincere".

'Harry and Meghan are doing it for money and attention! "Nope, Buckingham Palace has got nothing on CPW".

Currently, 95% of the couple's income comes from Prince Charles's income from the Duchy of Cornwall, a vast portfolio of property and financial investments, which brought in £21.6m past year.

The couple briefly returned to the United Kingdom in January following an extended six-week Christmas break on Vancouver Island.

Though we're sad to know that we won't be seeing the couple all dolled up on Monday, the reality is that they'll probably be much happier spending the night with their son, Archie, enjoying their newfound peace. Only 19 percent of Canadians would not object to their country assuming a share of the security costs.

TV critic Jim Shelley retweeted the post, captioning it "this is Harry's job now" - an amusing reference to the couple's monumental decision to step down as senior royals and "earn a professional income" earlier this year.
