Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hit the headlines this year for all the wrong reasons. This Christmas season, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not go to a royal family engagement in Sandringham, opting instead for a visit to Canada, the northern country.
Apparently, Meghan and Harry’s security team tried to find them a table in a chic Canadian restaurant, but due to security concerns, they were refused. According to Page Six, the former Suits and the Duke of Sussex spent their first vacation season with baby Archie on Vancouver Island, with Markle’s mother Doria Ragland.
Reports say the couple went for a hike in Horth Hill Regional Park and also jogged around North Saanich. The owner of the Deep Cove Chalet, the restaurant in question, admits having spoken with the royal couple’s team earlier this month, however, Pierre Koffel, the chef, said they could not meet their requirements in security matter.
She reportedly told the Vancouver Sun that Meghan and the Prince needed privacy and certainly deserved it. In addition, she said that she was delighted to learn that they were actually in the area. In a conversation with the Vancouver Sun, she added, “Horth Hill has become a very popular place now.”
As noted above, Meghan and Harry made the headlines a lot this year, and in many cases, for quite negative reasons. For example, several media outlets reported that Harry and Meghan had very strict rules for their neighbors.
Some of these rules included prohibiting neighbors and other members of the community from talking to one of them, including asking questions about their baby, offering babysitting, among other jokes.
However, in a statement, after the reports were released, their representatives explained that neither Meghan nor Harry had created such rules. Meghan was later the subject of speculation in media tabloids and criticism on social media, to which Harry responded with a long statement in which he referred to the death of his late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in 1997.
Even figures like Hillary Clinton defended Meghan Markle after the fact.
