Meghan Markle and Prince Harry not welcome in Canada


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry not welcome in Canada


It’s been a year since Meghan and Harry decided to take a step back from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family. “Megxit” was the product of what happened.

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepared to abandon the royal family and divide their time between the United Kingdom and Canada, one of Canada’s most influential newspapers voiced a firm opinion: the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are not welcome.

The Globe and Mail spoke for the nation, telling the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, “you are welcome to visit, but so long as you are senior royals, Canada cannot allow you to come to stay.”

On weekdays and Saturdays, The Globe and Mail is Canada’s most prominent newspaper, printed in five cities throughout the country. It is pointed to as Canada’s “Newspaper of record.”

The pair was chastised by the country’s main publication, which said that Canada was not a “halfway house” for the royals.

The nation was not for those “looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal,” according to a column in the magazine, advising Canada not to “allow” the couple’s “vague and evolving” plans to keep the country in limbo.


“But this country’s unique monarchy, and its delicate yet essential place in our constitutional system, means that a royal resident – the prince is sixth in the line of succession – is not something that Canada can allow.,” it continued.

“It breaks an unspoken constitutional taboo.

“Princes are not shipped over here when no useful duties can be found for them on the other side of the Atlantic.

“Canada welcomes people of all faiths, nationalities and races, but if you’re a senior member of our Royal Family, this country cannot become your home.”

“They reign from a distance,” the paper argued in another editorial. “Close to our hearts, far from our hearths.”

Although Canadians wish Prince Harry and Meghan success in resolving their personal problems, the editorial concludes that Canada is “not a halfway house for anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal”

Canada was a conglomeration of British territories until 1931, when it declared independence from the United Kingdom following years of lobbying. As a result, Tony Keller, the newspaper’s editorial-page writer, claimed that housing royals from Canada’s past colonizer would be an affront to the country’s current structure.

“In Britain, the monarch reigns but does not rule. In Canada, the monarch neither rules nor resides. She’s a virtual monarch,” Keller told Insider. “The ‘Crown’ is just an idea, but for the Canadian system of government, it’s a very real and even necessary idea.”

In Canada, Queen Elizabeth II has a delegate known as the governor-general, who is mostly responsible for ceremonial duties.

The publication seemed to have had a major impact on Meghan and Harry’s public profile in Canada.

According to an Angus Reid Institute poll published shortly after, 70% of Canadians surveyed were following and engaged by the developments of Megxit.

Around 73 percent of those polled believed the couple should have paid for their own security.

A 90,000-signature online petition spearheaded by angry Canadians requested that the royals compensate for protection out of their own pocket.

Meghan and Harry eventually left Canada for the United States in March 2020.
