Prince Harry & Meghan have just announced that they, along with baby Archie, will enjoy a Canadian Christmas this year.
The Royal couple has confirmed that they and baby Archie are spending a whole six weeks in our beautiful country over Christmas and New Year's.
A warm Canadian Christmas welcome from coast to coast!
Even Prime Minister Trudeau showed his enthusiasm by formally welcoming the Royals to the Great White North on Twitter.
Toronto Mayor John Tory also chimed in, telling the couple on Twitter (though the couple doesn't have Twitter) that "@MapleLeafs and @Raptors jerseys are awaiting Archie's visit!"
Though Markle is American, she spent a number of years living in Toronto during the filming of her hit tv show, Suits, and apparently loves the city and Canada in general.
Though the family is keeping their exact location under wraps for obvious reasons, it seems like they may be touring around and enjoying "the beauty of the landscape," according to their spokesperson.The spokesperson also told media outlets that the choice to spend the holidays in Canada "reflects the importance of this Commonwealth country to them both."
The decision is especially significant because it is the first Christmas and New Year's for baby Archie. Also, it is a notable break from the Royal tradition of spending the holidays at Sandringham House in Norfolk, England.
But, the Queen released a statement supporting the trip, saying that Prince Harry and Meghan will be spending time with Markle's mother.
