It's a big day for Canadians who recently Prince Harry and his family will officially be splitting their time between the UK and Canada. We don't know yet where in the country they will choose to spend their time. But Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Canada move won't require a visa if they temporarily leave every six months.
According to an article from CBC, they spoke to Dory Jade, "head of the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants" who told them that "the Sussexes have the wealth to simply leave Canada every six months — in which case they would need no visas at all."
They also noted that "Harry has no special legal status in Canada" and that Markle lived in Toronto for years while filming Suits, so she "may already have a work permit, permanent residency or even citizenship."
Back in May 2018, BBC reported that the actress lived in Canada for "nine months of the year for seven years" and became well-adjusted to the frigid winters.
They continued, saying that "In 2016, she told the Toronto Star newspaper that when she first moved to the city, Suits wasn't even airing in the country. She said she spent her first two years going to yoga studio 'Moksha downtown and trolling for girlfriends.'"
If the former actress spent so many years living in one of the biggest Canadian cities, that could mean she got herself citizenship in the process, as CBC wrote.
Markle was born in Los Angeles, giving her American citizenship at birth.
While she was living in Toronto, she developed quite a few close friendships.
Her best friend is Jessica Mulroney, wife of TV personality Ben Mulroney, and daughter-in-law of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
While the couple left Canada to make their announcement in England, they reportedly left baby Archie with Jessica. She also has a huge house in Toronto with her family that could be enticing for Markle to live near.
The Daily Mail reported that Markle has close friendships with "Soho House consultant Markus Anderson", Abigail Spencer from Suits, Serena Williams, and "designer Misha Nonoo who has been credited as the matchmaker who brought Meghan and Harry together." The couple made their first public appearance in Toronto at the Invictus Games.
Prince Harry has British citizenship, and back in December 2017, BBC reported that his new wife was working on getting her own U.K. citizenship as well.
