Prince Harry and Megan Markle are in Canada for the holidays and people are so excited
What's better than going home for the holidays? Going on a trip to Canada, apparently. That is, if you're Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
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.
Prince Harry & Meghan have just announced that they, along with baby Archie, will enjoy a Canadian Christmas this year. The couple will soon travel to Canada for “private family time” over the holidays. A warm Canadian Christmas welcome from coast to coast! #cdnpoli #cdncrown pic.twitter.com/BvZi0NdtNr— Canadian Crown 🇨🇦 (@Canadian_Crown) December 21, 2019
Canadian fans of the beloved trio are understandably excited about the news.
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!"
Prince Harry, Meghan, and Archie, we’re all wishing you a quiet and blessed stay in Canada. You’re among friends, and always welcome here.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) December 21, 2019
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.
Harry, Meghan and King Archie, wishing you and you family a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year. Love ❤️ you Sussex Family forever.— Liz Weaver 🇨🇦 🍁 (@CLizweaver) December 22, 2019
Archie’s First Christmas 🎄. From Canada to you all. God Bless Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and our precious Archie. 🙏🌈❤️👋🇨🇦👍
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.

Though it would admittedly be pretty cool to spot the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in-person, let's hope that they are able to enjoy a quiet, private holiday here.
