Not surprised they are in Canada . A lot more privacy and less intrusive media. Friends in Canada and New York are nice and close. Mom and others from LA could come visit easily without drawing too much attention either. They haven’t been spotted so likely at some friends private home.

I wonder if Ivy who had a very close bond with Meghan pre wedding is enjoying meeting Meghan’s little baby. Meghan has spent previous holiday time with the Litts pre Harry, hopefully gets a chance to see them too.

Philip is only a precaution. If the queen didn’t postpone her trip to Norfolk to be with him, don’t think the Sussexes will rush back either.

Be nice if the Phillips were spending Christmas with autumns family. Like Meghan’s mom, autumns family doesn’t have easy access to the girls.

That's what I was thinking and then thought that I'd missed something else happening.

I've read speculation elsewhere that a certain tabloid had tracked the Sussexes down and was about to announce an 'exclusive' in the Sunday press. The couple were warned by friends and therefore the Palace got in first. The Sussex family is probably elsewhere in Canada now.

To quote fellow Canadian Margaret Atwood: "Canada is an awfully big country". Here's to "letting them enjoy the warmth of the Canadian people and the beautiful landscape". Major spoiler here: Toronto does not have a beautiful landscape so hopefully they are snugly in a Banff cottage and making Albertans think again about separation from ROC (rest of Canada). Can't wait to see the Canadian press about this Christmas gem tomorrow morning

Well, Banff is beautiful, indeed, and they can ski in pristine surroundings, but choosing British Columbia would be best of all -- ski, swim, sail, surf -- and Vancouverites usually give celebrities (and royalty) a wide berth when they are really seeking privacy!

Maybe a Markle Maple Meet up .. a little Boxing Day picnic.
Would a private introduction to Meghan's side of the family be unreasonable for Archie?
Hopefully, we'll never know.

I don't think that will happen especially with Meghan's dad. Tom Sr turned over sections of a letter of Meghan's to DM that was meant to be private. He went to GMB and told about an alleged conversation with Harry about Donald Trump. If he overhear anything about Andrew and/or Philip that is not meant for public consumption he would blab to the press, or tell Samantha and she'll blab.

I don't think that an eight month old would have anything to say to Grandpa and Aunt Markle that would be worth repeating to the press.
A picnic could be arranged under surveillance - in full knowledge of Markles' loose lips.

It's unlikely, yes. We will never know.

Why? The Markle/family thread has been long closed on here, but the only reason we are even discussing the markles here, is because they sold every single tidbit they knew about Meghan to the tabloids. Added, that none of them except Mr Markle, was in any contact with Meghan for decade/s before she even met Harry. Why would she introduce her son to people who weren't in her life for over 10 years, hate her, and would sell the meeting to the tabloids?

Sorry, Cocoasneeze. I didn't realize the topic was taboo.
I certainly didn't mean to cause distress.

Seems a silly question but here we are : why not offer the role of Governor General of Canada to Harry ?
Guess it's a win win situation for everyone ...

They are enjoying sharing the warmth of the Canadian people...

meaning: unlike the Brits, who are stiff upper lip and don't know about warmth and don't give them their undivided admiration.

Why would you have your spokesperson say something like that?

For all I care, they can stay wherever they perceive people have warmth and live there a quiet life as Mr & Mr. Sussex.

Why is saying something nice about the people of a specific country an automatic slight or negative about other people? It could simply mean that the people of Canada have been warm, welcoming and kind to them...keeping their privacy etc. and absolutely nothing to do with people else where.

They may or may not have been in Canada but it had nothing to do with with the maple leaf emoji.... the maple leaf along with Turkey etc is a common symbol of Thanksgiving in the US and comes up automatically as an option when you type Thanksgiving.

As far as I know, in the latter part of the twentieth century those position started being granted to the citizens of the respective nations and are no longer given to members of the BRF.

So complimenting Canadians is insulting Brits? Fascinating.

Apparently.

That assertion is silly considering the countries are intertwined with the commonwealth.
