Rumours were flying Thursday evening that Meghan Markle was in Canada — sparking speculation that she might be on her way back to Greater Victoria.
The news comes just one day after Prince Harry and Meghan announced that they planned to “step back” from royal duties and make North America their part-time home.
Hours before the announcement, rumours emerged online and in tabloids that the couple were planning a move to Canada, which Buckingham Palace refused to comment on.
Harry, Meghan and baby Archie spent the Christmas holidays on Vancouver Island, staying at Milles Fleurs, a 15-year-old estate that is part of the Towner Park Country Club in North Saanich.
Their first official duty upon their return to the U.K. was a visit to Canada House in London, where Harry reportedly joked about a soggy vacation on Vancouver Island, but gushed in a statement about “the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay in Canada.”
