Prince Harry and Megan Markle might be spending a lot more time in Canada
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, also known affectionately as just Harry and Meghan, made a huge announcement on Instagram today, sharing that they will begin to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent.
The pair also shared that they now intend to balance their time between the United Kingdom and North America.
Some people are speculating that this change could mean that the royal couple, including their son, could be spending more time in Canada.

This might not be so far off as Harry, Meghan, and their son Archie recently just spent the holiday season in British Columbia.
Meghan Markle also spent a number a years living in Toronto while filming the hit series Suits.
In the announcement the couple wrote that they have decided to make 2020 a transition year as they begin to carve out a progressive new role within the institution.
"We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," read the post on their Instagram page, @sussexroyal.
"We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages."

The announcement goes on to say that the "geographic balance" will enable the couple to raise their son with an appreciation for the royal tradition while also providing their family with space to focus the launch their new charitable entity.
This is a groundbreaking change to happen within the royal family, but most people aren't surprised that it's coming from Harry and Meghan.
