One of Cananda’s largest newspapers has attacked Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, saying they should not treat their country as an “intermediate house.”
The new parents had enjoyed the Christmas holidays in Vancouver and it seems they are very connected to the Commonwealth country.
However, The Globe and Mail has published an article that says having a real member like Harry is not “something Canada can allow.”
Harry and Meghan had enjoyed a six-week break from their royal duties before the new year to return and announced that they would give up their return.
The announcement explains that the couple will become “financially independent” and will divide their time between the United Kingdom and Cananda.
As much as the couple can enjoy Canada, with Meghan making a recent visit to a women’s shelter in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Vancouver, it seems that not everyone is very welcoming.
While Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had tweeted Harry, Meghan and his son Archie were “among friends and always welcome here,” The Globe and Mail condemned their decision.
The conservative newspaper, which traditionally supports the monarchy, wrote: ‘If they were ordinary private citizens, the old and simple Harry and Meghan of Sussex would be welcome.
‘But the unique monarchy of this country, and its delicate but essential place in our constitutional system, means that a real resident, the prince is the sixth in the line of succession, is not something that Canada can allow. Break a tacit constitutional taboo. “
The editorial said that Canada’s relationship with the monarchy was different from Britain’s, adding: “Our royalty does not live here.” They reign from a distance. Near our hearts, far from our homes.
“Canadians like their monarchy, and visits by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family tend to produce public enthusiasm.”
But royalty should not “establish a house on the premises,” he said.
‘Princes are not sent here when you cannot find useful tasks for them on the other side of the Atlantic.
“Canada welcomes people of all religions, nationalities and races, but if you are an important member of our Royal Family, this country cannot become your home.”
There was a great debate among many about Harry and Meghan making Canada their home, including the cost of security that the Canadian government is supposed to pay.
However, The Globe and Mail said it was not a matter of money, writing: “It goes beyond the possibility that the feds have to find a few million dollars extra.”
The articles appear after a source claims that Harry and Meghan are abandoning their royal duties for multiple reasons, not just for privacy.
The source told PEOPLE magazine: “This is not how they wanted to handle this, but Meghan and Harry’s hand was forced.”
They claim that there was “bad blood” in the Royal Family, which greatly influenced their decision to leave.
