Headline: Meghan and Harry might live in Canada

Great idea. They may be happier.
Harry would be away from his brother which he (according to gossip) wants.
Evidently the Canadians are excited about it so Meghan might get the adulation she craves without having to go to places like Africa and if the gossip is true, she’ll have achieved her aim of parting Harry from his family.
Lots of people here would be happier, especially if they are not taking money from British tax payers for their security and standing in their own two feet To earn money. (Not sure I believe that bit)

I’d be happy, because hopefully we wouldn’t be constantly faced with news about them in every newspaper or on every TV channel.
I feel sorry for the Queen. Like many stories on here she won’t see so much of her grandson/great grandson because they’re moving so far away but lots of us know about that.

I read a comment yesterday from a Canadian taxpayer who called them illegal refugees, stating that Canadians do not want to have to fund their security etc. I'm sure there will be lots of discussion about that on both sides of the Atlantic.

They could only stay for 6 months I think as visitors. Maybe that's why they said they intended to split their year?

I asked on a previous thread whether they were actually allowed to leave Britain and live wherever they wish. Don't immigration laws apply to the royals? No-one answered me.

Google it?

If they left yes ok fine. But with no strings.

As it is 6months here (we pay?) 6 months Canada (Queen/Prince Charles/Duch of Cornwall pay. which ultimately means us again) theyre not going to turn their backs on that arrangement.

So everyone looses except them!

NotSpaghetti Sun 12-Jan-20 17:57:00

Sorry Ladymuck, yes. I didn't notice your comment on the other thread.
I suppose if they were given a UK appointment that would be different though. For example, I don't know if it would apply if he were to be made Governor General or work from an Embassy.

Why have we got another thread about the same thing ?

janeainsworth Sun 12-Jan-20 18:03:06

I see the word ‘gossip’ has appeared twice in the OP.

Grammaretto Sun 12-Jan-20 18:12:39

Why Canada? Why does it keep being called North America?
Probably all explained on the other thread but I haven't read through that one.
I can't see that pair being able to escape completely and what's this about the Sussex brand?
Sounds rather naff.
I think the queen has her own built in survival system. She has her animals after all.

Callistemon Sun 12-Jan-20 18:20:49

I don't think she has her beloved dogs any more, Grammaretto.

Callistemon Sun 12-Jan-20 18:21:41

Governor General
Surely not!

NotSpaghetti Sun 12-Jan-20 20:01:15

Callistemon 😂

sodapop Sun 12-Jan-20 20:22:15

The dogs are in Canada with them. They were taken over last year, make what you will of that.

SueH49 Sun 12-Jan-20 22:38:10

Just imagine if the press left them alone. It would not be long before H & M instigated contact when it suited them. It seems that "so called celebrities" are happy to use the media when it suits them but want to cry foul when it doesn't.

suziewoozie Sun 12-Jan-20 22:58:43

And they’re off again 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

pinkquartz Sun 12-Jan-20 23:02:34

But they will have to pay taxes...something new for Harry to think about.

And why would the American Press leave them alone? They won't.

suziewoozie Sun 12-Jan-20 23:09:08

I doubt that Harry has never paid income tax - but still he and Meghan are both so evil I expect they’ve actually eaten baby Archie and just pretended to leave him with the nanny in Canada.

Callistemon Sun 12-Jan-20 23:26:54

I expect he paid tax on his Army pay at least.

suziewoozie Sun 12-Jan-20 23:35:44

I expect Harry’s tax affairs are exactly the same as William’s - no wait a minute, that can’t be true because William is beyond reproach and Harry eats babies and couldn’t possibly pay income tax - ah but maybe he paid income tax before the evil Meghan came along... yes that would explain it. Phew😂

suziewoozie Sun 12-Jan-20 23:44:49

And what’s more - the shoes he wears 😱 Before ‘she’ came along, his shoes were absolutely fine.( I think his grannie bought them for him). But now, well words fail me.

suziewoozie Sun 12-Jan-20 23:46:04

And don’t get me started on his underpants.

merlotgran Sun 12-Jan-20 23:49:32

Are you quite alright, suziewoozie?

suziewoozie Sun 12-Jan-20 23:57:41

I’m absolutely fine thank you. Just thought I’d up the quality of the posts on the Evil Two ( or the Evil one and He Who Has Been Led Astray Most Wickedly

suziewoozie Mon 13-Jan-20 00:02:05

Why isn’t anyone joining in on the impact ‘She’ has had on his shoes and underpants? Am I the only one to be beside herself with indignation at this slap in the face to HM , the R F and the Monarchy itself as manifest in shoes and underpants?
