Prince Harry and his wife suddenly announced on the 8th that they decided to “withdraw” from the British royal family and plan to allocate their time between Canada and the UK to start a “new life”. Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau has said he believes most Canadians support Harry and his wife’s decision and the cost is still under discussion.
According to the BBC, Trudeau said in an interview with global news recently, “the royal family and the Harry couple still have a lot of decisions to make. As for the extent to which they want to move, we will support their ideas and have the responsibility to do so.”
When the host asked if Canadians would pay for their security if Harry Megan moved to Canada, Trudeau said, “that’s part of what we need to think about, and we’re having a discussion.”
Trudeau also said it was not clear what the final arrangement would be, depending on the decision of the Harry and his wife. “I think most Canadians are very supportive of having Harry and his wife live in this country. The issue of security costs for Harry and Megan (while in Canada) is still under discussion. “
The harlemegans announced on January 8 that they would give up their senior membership of the British royal family, allocate their time between Canada and the UK, and achieve financial independence. Queen Elizabeth II also issued a statement after meeting with members of the royal family to support their desire to start a new life, and agreed to live in the UK and Canada during the transition period.
The Harry and his wife have a close relationship with Canada, and they spent their holidays in Vancouver with their eight month old son during Christmas 2019. Shortly after returning to the UK, a statement of withdrawal from the royal family was issued.
British media reported earlier that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau proposed to pay for the security costs of Harry and Megan during their stay in Canada. After learning this information, many Canadian netizens “frying pan”. Many Canadian people tweeted that they would not pay one cent for the security of the two people. Some even said that if the taxpayer wanted to pay for this, they would “make trouble and protest”.
