Today’s a special day for Canadian residents, Canada Day, and several prominent personalities are taking to social media to celebrate it. Prince Harry’s tribute to Meghan Markle’s Canadian home is one example. The Duke of Sussex took to Instagram with a special slideshow of photos in honor of his wife’s former stomping grounds.
In a post on the couple’s official Instagram channel, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remarked that “Canada is a very special place for both [of us]. The Duke has been fortunate to visit the country several times throughout his life, including as a young child and most recently for the Invictus Games in 2017, where the now Duchess joined him to lend her support. The Duchess lived and worked in Toronto for many years and also spoke at the One Young World Summit held in Ottawa.” Markle lived in Toronto throughout her tenure on the USA Network series, Suits.
The post’s photos include images of the couple’s visit to Canada House in London, Meghan and Harry at the Invictus Games in 2017, and Harry holding a Canadian flag with a young well wisher. The couple went on to praise the Canadian people for their special welcome to them and their newborn, Archie. “Their Royal Highnesses have always been touched by the warmth, friendliness and hospitality of the Canadian people. They hope to be able to visit again as a family, and they send their great thanks to all of the kind Canadians who have sent such special gifts for Archie!”
Though there have been rumors of the couple feuding with nearly everyone in the royal family, it’s great to see the couple share their memories of how a holiday, like Canada Day holds such personal meaning. The first time Prince William’s daughter, Charlotte, went on a royal tour was to Canada so maybe we’ll see baby Archie hit up the country soon.
