Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Announce First Royal Engagement of 2020


Everyone has to go back to work eventually, even Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

While getting back to work after a 6-week holiday getaway can be daunting, the royal couple’s first order of business is to pay tribute to the country that hosted their exceptional vacation.

Royal correspondent for the DailyMail Rebecca English revealed that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will make their first royal engagement of 2020 to visit the Canada House in London on Tuesday, January 7.

The royal couple will also meet with Janice Charette, High Commissioner in Canada to the U.K. as well as staff “to thank them for the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay in Canada.”

As part of their tour, they will also visit the Canada Gallery for a special exhibition by Indigenous Canadian artist Skawennati and meet members of the High Commission team, according to PEOPLE.

The Buckingham Palace announced that the royal couple would be spending the holidays privately: "The Duke of Sussex has been a frequent visitor to Canada over many years, and it was also home to The Duchess for seven years before she became a member of the Royal Family. They are enjoying sharing the warmth of the Canadian people and the beauty of the landscape with their young son,”

Markle has a special connection with Canada as she lived in Toronto for a year while filming her series, “Suits.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated the holiday in a $14.1 million waterfront owned by an unknown multi-millionaire, Daily Mail reported. They spent time with the Duchess of Sussex’s mother Doria Ragland and their son, Archie.

According to PEOPLE, the couple was spotted on a New Year’s hike where Meghan stopped to take a photo for a young couple struggling to take a picture with their selfie stick.
