Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are the cover stars of this week’s Us Weekly, which is definitely a risky move on Us Weekly’s part, considering that Harry has made it absolutely clear he’ll call his lawyers if Meghan is the subject of tacky tabloid gossip. But Us Weekly is probably safe, because their coverage of Harry and Meghan here is generally positive.
According to UsWeekly’s cover story, Harry and Meghan are TIRED OF THE LIES. Which I believe is the polite supermarket-friendly way of saying that Harry and Meghan are fucking 100% done with the bullshit written about them in the British press. And apparently Harry and Meghan are so over it, they’ve considered packing up Archie and moving across the pond to Canada.
As you already know, Harry and Meghan currently live at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, a nice private little home away from the hustle and bustle (and Prince William) of London. They sunk $3 million into renovations, which sounds like it’s probably a pretty decent place to go and relax after a long day of wishing the British press would knock it off with the Meghan hate. But a royal source claims they want far less of Frogmore (I’m sorry, I had to). The source says that relocation, “is an option” for them, and that they’re considering it for their future.
“Meghan and Harry have considered moving to Canada, as it’s part of the Commonwealth,” says the source.
Meghan lived in Toronto, Canada while she filmed Suits and all those terrific Reitmans commercials. But she’s originally an American citizen. Harry, however, is a British citizen, as is their son Archie. Harry is also a rich person who’s related to Queen Elizabeth, which I believe means he can live wherever the hell he wants. But it would be fairly easy for Harry and Meghan to make Canada their home. As mentioned by the source, Canada is still a Commonwealth country, which means we’ve got Liz on our money and you’ll find pictures of her in some banks, churches, municipal buildings, and houses of parliament. Technically a UK citizen has to immigrate to Canada using the proper visas and paperwork. But yeah, something tells me we won’t see Pearson Airport Border Guards dumping an exhausted Harry and Meghan’s luggage and eyeballing their paperwork at Customs and Immigration.
Not surprisingly, they’re considering a move because they want to get away from the British press.
“It’s an accumulation, and Harry refuses to sit and do nothing as the British press scrutinizes Meghan and invades her privacy,” the source explains. “Meghan comes across as a strong woman, but she’s been deeply affected by the negative stories about her. Harry is worried that the recent escalation of press intrusion has an impact on his relationship with Meghan, as well as their relationship with the royal family and the public.”
There are 53 Commonwealth countries Harry and Meghan could have chosen, but they’ve apparently set their sights on Canada. Who knew Aaron Carter had such influence? If Harry and Meghan move to Canada, they should probably narrow it down a little more. After all, there’s a big difference between Halifax and Okotoks. But if privacy is what they’re after, I suggest they move very, very far north. It’s too damn cold up in Nunavut for the Daily Mail to go snooping through their trash and waiting all day to snap a picture of Meghan wearing jeans.
