Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently returned from a vacation in Canada, and now it seems the royal couple may be considering a permanent move to North America. A source who is allegedly close to the couple spoke with The Sun about their potential plans to relocate.
"It is true that Harry and Meghan will spend a fair amount of time in Canada over the next couple of months and possibly going forward too," the source told the outlet. "Right now they are starting talks with their family about their plans for the future. Those conversations are at a very early stage."
"There is a very careful and serious process to go through which they are going to respect," the source continued. "But it is clear they are on a different and unique path, and they are very much thinking about what the future looks like for them.
"That could include being based in Canada or the possibility of walking away from their [His Royal Highness] titles, although hopefully it will not come to that," they added. "It's been a very tough year — they're newlyweds and they have a young baby — so they're looking at what their life looks like in the future. Everything is on the table."
The couple spent Christmas in Canada with their son, Archie. Buckingham Palace released a statement via PEOPLE about their decision to enjoy the holidays abroad.
"The decision to base themselves in Canada reflects the importance of this Commonwealth country to them both," the statement read. "Whilst this email confirms the country they are taking their family time in, for security reasons we will not be releasing any further details and request that their privacy is respected."
"The Duke of Sussex has been a frequent visitor to Canada over many years, and it was also home to The Duchess for seven years before she became a member of the Royal Family," the statement continued. "They are enjoying sharing the warmth of the Canadian people and the beauty of the landscape with their young son."
