The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, has spoken out in support of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex regarding their decision to begin balancing their lives between England and Canada.
Trudeau described Canadians as being “very supportive” of welcoming the royals into the country during a televised interview with Global News, but added, “How that looks and what kind of cost is involved, there is still lots of discussions to have.”
When the Sussexes first announced their decision to step down as senior members of the royal family, they shared they would soon be splitting their time between the United Kingdom and North America—but did not specify exactly where.
Once Queen Elizabeth II released her official statement declaring her approval of Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down, she specified they would indeed be taking a part-time residence in Canada. The royal couple had spent almost two months abroad in the country while they were on a break from royal duties during the holidays.
