Just recently, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle surprise royal family fans when the Duke of Sussex announced that he’ll be stepping back as senior royal. But a recent report is even more shocking as it claims that the couple is actually not welcome to live in Canada.

During the Royal Family’s crisis summit held on January 12, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got what they wanted as Queen Elizabeth II agreed to their request. While Her Majesty was reportedly upset that they are quitting, she agreed to let them spend time in Canada and step down from their royal duties, The Sun reported.

“Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life,” the Queen said in an official statement.

But Canada’s biggest publication printed an editorial saying that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can’t stay in Canada as long as they’re still royalty. “You are welcome to visit, but so long as you are senior royals, Canada cannot allow you to come to stay,” The Globe and Mail wrote.

The publication explained that the Canadian government must decline the Sussexes to maintain its own monarchy. “This isn’t about breaking up with the Crown. On the contrary, it’s about maintaining Canada’s unique and highly successful monarchy,” The Globe and Mail added.

If Prince Harry and Meghan Meghan were ordinary private citizens, they’d be welcome to stay in the country. But the newspaper argued that they’re far from ordinary since the Duke of Sussex is sixth in line to the British throne. Allowing them to stay would be akin to breaking a constitutional taboo.

“If they were ordinary private citizens, plain old Harry and Meghan from Sussex, they would be welcome,” The Globe and Mail said. “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 breaks an unspoken constitutional taboo.”

The Sussexes will go through a transition period while they create a new life as a young family while dividing their time in both the UK and Canada. It’s a move that already has the support of Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

But such an arrangement is not acceptable for The Globe and Mail. “Canada is not a halfway house for anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal,” the publication opined.
