The Globe and Mail, one of Canada’s largest newspapers, seems to be unhappy with the decision of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to spend a lot of time in the country.
The newspaper published an editorial on Monday entitled “Harry and Meghan, and why members of the royal family cannot live in Canada,” which says the relocation violates laws that keep Canada separate from the British monarchy that previously ruled the country.
“In response to the sudden announcement of a vague and evolving plan for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan, to move to Canada while remaining part of the royal family, the response of the Trudeau government should be simple and succinct: No, “according to the editorial, which referred to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The article says that allowing the royal couple to live in Canada would interrupt efforts to maintain “Canada’s unique and highly successful monarchy.”
“A royalty that lives in this country does not agree with the long-standing nature of the relationship between Canada and Great Britain, and Canada and the Crown,” the editorial said.
The article cites the “Britain’s class system with hereditary aristocrats” as a reason why Canada cannot allow Harry, 35, and Markle, 38, to live within its limits.

“In addition, with the Statute of Westminster of 1931, Canada’s relationship with Britain was defined as one of equal and independent nations,” explains the editorial.
“The Sussex are solving their own personal problems, and Canadians wish them the best of luck,” the newspaper added. “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.”
The newspaper, widely regarded as the most reputed in Canada, ended by saying that royals cannot use the nation as “an intermediate house for anyone who wants to leave Britain while still being a member of royalty.”

Harry and Markle announced last week that they plan to “withdraw” from their royal duties and divide their time between London and North America. After a meeting in person between the main members of the Royal Family, Queen Elizabeth II agreed to transfer the couple part-time to Canada during a “transition period.”
