Justin Trudeau welcomes Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and Archie to Canada with sweet message

By Zach Harper

It's official: The Sussexes are in Canada!

On Dec. 20, it was reported Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and Archie were spending “private family time” in the country – and that has now been confirmed by none other than Prime Minister Justin Trudeau!

The Canadian head of government took to Twitter to send a special message to the family on Dec. 20.

“Prince Harry, Meghan and Archie, we’re all wishing you a quiet and blessed stay in Canada,” he wrote. “You’re among friends, and always welcome here.”

The story that the Sussexes were in Canada was confirmed by a spokesperson for the family to royal reporter Omid Scobie late Dec. 20. The same day, the Daily Mail also reported the family had been staying in the country at a secret location and have been here on their six-week break from royal duties. The publication also stated Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, is with them and they all have plans to spend Christmas here.

Of course, the Duchess of Sussex loves Toronto, having lived there for seven years while she was on Suits, and she still has many friends in Canada, including Jessica Mulroney and her family. The country gets plenty of snow around Christmas, so we hope the Sussexes are enjoying plenty of time outdoors with Archie, introducing him to pastimes such as hockey and tobogganing!

Harry and Meghan have been on a six-week break from duties, and the Queen is supportive of their decision to spend the holidays with Meghan’s mother.
