Justin Trudeau says there is ‘much to discuss’ over Meghan and Harry’s move to North America and does NOT confirm Canadian taxpayers will pick up their £500,000 security bill

  • Canada’s PM said there is still much to discuss over Harry and Meghan’s move 
  • On Monday, the Queen agreed to allow her grandson and his wife to split their time between Canada and the UK as they step down as senior royals   

Isn’t over a million? 

‘I think most Canadians are very supportive of having royals be here, but how that looks and what kind of costs are involved, there are still lots of discussions to have.’

Whoah, hold the horses after Canadians went WHAT! 🤬NO! 

He said the federal Canadian government had not been involved ‘up until this point’ about what the couple’s move to the country will involve.

 

‘There are still a lot of decisions to be taken by the royal family, by the Sussexes themselves, as to what level of engagement they choose to have,’ Mr Trudeau said.

 

‘We are obviously supportive of their reflections but have responsibilities in that as well.’

What have you done for me lately or better still what will you do for us? 

 

The Sussexes enjoyed a ‘general feeling of appreciation’ in Canada, he added.

 

The decision came as finance minister Bill Morneau said the Canadian government has not yet discussed if it would help cover the security costs associated with Harry and Meghan living in Canada.

 

‘No, we haven’t spent any time thinking about this issue,’ Morneau told reporters in Toronto on Monday.

 

‘We obviously are always looking to make sure, as a member of the Commonwealth, we play a role. We have not had any discussions on that subject at this time.’

There have been concerns that the large cost of providing security for Harry and Meghan could lead to a backlash in Canada and damage the status of the monarchy there.

Oh, you think and this could be the takeaway 

Harry and Meghan are entitled to 24/7 taxpayer-funded protection at home and abroad as members of the royal family. 

Are they still members? 

Campaigners have said the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who are charged with protecting senior officials including the Governor General, must not write a blank check on millions of dollars worth of protection, while others have suggested Harry and Meghan should foot the bill themselves.

Are they hinting at a Governor-General position for the woke couple?

Harry and Meghan are formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Five percent of their income is from public funds.

🤣🤣🤣🤣

A recent poll conducted two days before the couple’s shock announcement found that more than 60 per cent of Canadians would support the appointment of the Duke of Sussex as the Governor General of Canada.

Until they find out how nasty they are to staff. Look if she can’t cut it as Royal in England what makes you think she wants to do duties in Canada? 

The mostly ceremonial role, which is to act as the Queen’s representative in Canada, provides both a residence – Government House in Ottowa – and a security detail.

Some 61 per cent of the Canadians polled said they would support having Harry replace current governor general Julie Payette when her term expires in two years

Harry is likely to get handout from his father’s £2.3m-a-year Duchy of Cornwall

Prince Harry IS likely to get handout from his father’s £2.3m-a-year Duchy of Cornwall coffers after splitting from the royals – but Charles’ friends warn he ‘doesn’t have unlimited resources’

Prince Harry IS likely to still get £2.3m-a-year handout from his father’s Duchy of Cornwall coffers after splitting from the royals – but Charles’ friends warn he ‘doesn’t have unlimited resources’

  • Harry is estimated to receive a £2.3million annual income from father’s estate 
  • But sources close to Charles have warned he ‘doesn’t have unlimited resources’
  • It comes as Harry and Meghan claim they can become financially independent 
  • But this fiscal ambition is yet to meet the Queen’s rigorous demands for clarity

You have to be 🤬ing stupid to fall for this or else she blackmailing you. They have millions and you want to give them more money? Meghan going to 🤬him over once her coffers fill up and kick him to the curb! JD🥰

The Queen may have made a big mistake

THE SUN SAYS The Queen’s surrender to Harry and Meghan’s selfish demands may prove the biggest mistake of her reign

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10732028/queen-mistake-reign-harry-meghan-demands/

The public will be repulsed if these two quitters continue to make a penny from them — and yes, that includes the ancient Duchy of Cornwall, which Prince Charles only inherited as the monarch’s eldest son.

But that’s only the start. Letting them keep their titles to amass a Kardashian-sized fortune cashing in on their royal status will be a grotesque abuse of the monarchy and taxpayers who fund it.

What will the public get in return? Nothing.

Meanwhile this revered 1,000-year-old institution will be reduced to an Instagram marketing tool for one jaw- droppingly self-centred young couple.

We never really thought this scandal could threaten the monarchy.

William and Harry had a furious row before charity polo match

William and Harry had a furious row before charity polo match attended by Meghan, Kate and their children, claim palace aides and the Princes’ relationship ‘is at an all-time low

William and Harry had a furious row before charity polo match attended by Meghan, Kate and their children, claim palace aides and the Princes’ relationship ‘is at an all-time low

  • Harry and William had a ‘bitter war of words shortly before polo event last year’ 
  • They had a row shortly before playing against each other in front of their families
  • Claims emerged after princes denied William had ‘bullied’ Harry and Meghan 
  • Sources also say that the relationship between princes is now at an all-time low 

Tensions are then said to have grown between the brothers over the past year, with William accusing Harry of ‘speaking rudely to staff’ and ‘changing’ personality.

Kate and Meghan are also said to have clashed over the way the Duchess of Sussex spoke to staff and she told her US-born sister-in-law after she ‘b*****ed’ a Kensington Palace worker: ‘That’s unacceptable, they’re my staff and I speak to them’.

‘They’ll always love each other as brothers, but right now things have never been so bad. William feels betrayed and let down by Harry.

‘Harry feels like William and Kate never gave Meghan a chance. And now they’re leaving the country in this state.’

If that’s going to be the excuse, it’s a bad one. Meghan already put the motions in place by copyrighting her name back in March. Look the girl has had an exit strategy from day one.  She purposefully got in between the brothers by using acting and they all fell for it. How can Harry be so dumb! Once you see all of Enty Blinds you’ll agree she is evil.  JD🥰

 

Richard Littlejohn- And the Oscar for Best Actress goes to…Meghan Markle

And the Oscar for Best Actress goes to… Meghan Markle

The Queen deserves better than this, as I wrote on Friday, but she certainly hasn’t let it affect her legendary equilibrium.

Yesterday’s hastily convened summit at Sandringham was a reminder to everyone, not just Harry and Meghan, exactly who’s in charge.

Her gaff. Her rules.

Even Philip was told to make himself scarce, for the sake of his own health. The last thing the frail 98-year-old Duke of Edinburgh needed was the prospect of Little Miss Markle laying down the law from Canada.

Her Maj was clearly determined, too, that the crisis was only going to cause minimum disruption to her daily routine.

She insisted that the summit be wound up in time for tea, so she could settle down in front of Pointless with a cup of Earl Grey and a plate of ginger biscuits.

How quintessentially English. As a young woman, the Queen will have grown up with Jack Buchanan’s whimsical 1935 song Everything Stops For Tea, a celebration of our love affair with a nice cuppa.

Curiously, when Long John Baldry recorded his own version of Everything Stops For Tea in 1972, it was co-produced by Elton John and Rod Stewart.

Fast-forward five decades and we now learn that Harry and Meghan decided to tell Elton John about their decision before informing Her Maj. No doubt they felt that was the least they could do after Elton paid for their private jet.

Presumably, they couldn’t get hold of Rod Stewart, who was still sleeping off his 75th birthday celebrations.

This is the world they now inhabit: beholden to a merry-go-round of septuagenarian pop stars, superwoke showbiz riff-raff, snouts-in-the-trough politicians and dubious billionaires. They’re welcome to each other.

Still, whatever you think about the Sussexes’ unilateral declaration of independence, there’s no doubt it has contributed enormously to the gaiety of the nation. Just sit back and enjoy it.

Never having been a monarchist, I rarely take any notice of royal tittle-tattle. But over the weekend, I’ve savoured every cough and spit. The devil, as always, is in the detail.

Frankly, it’s difficult to know where to start. I haven’t stopped laughing for days.

There appears to be no limit to Meghan’s self-absorption and obsession with privacy, when it suits her.

According to one paper, we should have spotted that the couple were intending to do a Captain Oates when they took both their dogs to Canada for their six-week Christmas holiday.

Royal ‘sources’ confided that Meghan wouldn’t have contemplated subjecting her pet beagle and black Labrador to such a gruelling, nine-hour plane journey if she hadn’t been planning an extended stay away from Britain. The beagle is called Guy, and was rescued from a Kentucky swamp before Meghan adopted him. Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky swamp . . .

But we’re not allowed to know anything about the Labrador. The couple have never released the name of the dog, which they acquired in 2018. We’re not even told whether it is male or female.

What’s the big secret? Has the Lab ticked the box marked ‘no publicity’? Is Meghan worried that if its identity is made public, it will be hounded (so to speak) by the puparazzi?

Is she concerned that every time the Lab goes walkies it will have to wear a baseball cap and sunglasses and be surrounded by burly minders — like Madonna, when she goes jogging. There was also a hilarious report about Harry’s attempts to pass himself off as one of the locals on Vancouver Island.

According to the owner of a home decor store, while shopping for Christmas decorations, the Prince pulled a blue woolly hat down over his eyes and effected a terrible Canadian accent.

On a small island, where everyone knows everyone else, he was doomed to failure, especially as he was accompanied by a close protection officer. He couldn’t have been more conspicuous if he tried.

He might just as well have dressed up as a Mountie and started singing I’m A Lumberjack, I wish I’d been a Princess, just like my dear Mama . . .

The shop’s owner said: ‘I thought there was something familiar about him, even though I could barely see his face.’

Then the penny dropped. ‘Oh, my God, you’re Prince Andrew!’ You couldn’t make it up. And speaking of close protection officers, it was reported that the couple’s taxpayer-funded security detail could be downgraded once they turn their back on royal duties. They won’t be left ‘unguarded’, however, although their protection officers will now carry Tasers instead of shooters.

Thank God, we were worried sick.

Never mind that the Old Bill think nothing of leaving the rest of us unguarded. I’ve been trying to imagine the top-level meeting at the Yard to review the couple’s security arrangements.

As Home Secretary Priti Flamingo says, the idea that Meghan has been forced out of Britain by racism is beyond absurd, writes RICHARD LITTLEJOHN

‘Now listen up. The fifth floor have decreed that security for the Duke and Duchess of Suffolk must be downgraded concomitant to the reduction in their royal commitments. Any suggestions? Yes, Hollis.’

‘Why don’t we swap their protection officers’ guns for Tasers? That should send out the right message.’ ‘Excellent idea. In fact, let ’em make do with truncheons and whistles. And instead of half a dozen Range Rovers, in future they can be accompanied everywhere by a bobby on a bicycle.’

Still, they shouldn’t be in much danger in laid-back Canada, which looks certain to be their destination for the forseeable.

Meghan has announced via ‘friends’ that she won’t live in the U.S. while the evil Donald Trump remains President.

Don’t you just love the arrogance of the woman, presuming to tell 327 million Americans who they are allowed to elect?

Funny how she won’t live in a country run by ‘racist’ Trump, but sucks up to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, who has been caught out blacking up, not once but several times.

She’s also playing the victim card for all it’s worth — those ‘friends’ again threatening a warts ’n’ all interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which she will smear the Royal Family as racist and sexist, unless she gets the settlement she wants.

As Home Secretary Priti Flamingo says, the idea that Meghan has been forced out of Britain by racism is beyond absurd.

Maybe the makers of The Crown can hire Ms Markle to play herself in a movie version — with Chris Evans as Harry and Al Jolson as Trudeau. Nailed on for a Best Actress Oscar, I’d have thought.

Finally, I loved the story which said that, rather than learning about the couple’s announcement from TV, Her Maj read it first on her iPad.

I couldn’t help smiling. For my mum’s 91st birthday last summer, I bought her a new iPad. She now sits up half the night reading Mail Online. Maybe our 93-year-old Queen does the same.

Meanwhile, I have visions of the situation room at Sandringham being kitted out with one of the giant screens you see in White House war rooms, like the time they took out Osama Bin Laden.

You can just imagine Her Maj sitting there in a bomber jacket with the royal crest on her chest, directing operations, as General Sir Alan Fitztightly informs her: ‘Ma’am, we have a drone in situ over Vancouver Island and have eyeballs on the target. We await your instructions . . .’

Harry and Meghan are told to put a brake on their money-making plans

‘No one wants to see the Sussex name on a tub of margarine’: Harry and Meghan are told to put a brake on their money-making plans – but friends of Charles warn them he ‘doesn’t have unlimited resources’

‘No one wants to see the Sussex name on a tub of margarine’: Harry and Meghan are told to put a brake on their money-making plans – but friends of Charles warn them he ‘doesn’t have unlimited resources’

  • Palace aides will clamp down on couple using their titles to line their pockets  
  • There are fears Harry and Meghan will ‘cash in’ on royalty as they quit duties
  • Prince Charles is also reluctant to foot the bill for his son’s detached lifestyle  

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be hamstrung with strict rules to prevent them from cashing in on their royal titles as they move to become ‘financially independent’, insiders revealed last night.

After two hours of talks between the Queen and Princes Charles, William and Harry at Sandringham today, Her Majesty allowed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to quit their Royal roles.

In a historic statement she said: ‘Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.’

It appears to give the couple licence to pursue private commercial deals, with experts predicting their global brand could be worth an eye-watering £400million.

But aides continuing to work around the clock to thrash out a viable funding blueprint are expected to clamp down on Harry and Meghan using their titles to line their pockets.

One figure told the Daily Mail’s Richard Kay: ‘There will be strict instructions on branding, for example. No one wants to see the Sussexes’ name on a tub of margarine.’

This was a deliberate nod to what happened in the aftermath of Diana’s death when her memorial fund began endorsing cash-raising schemes that appalled the public.

Harry may not also be able to rely on the bank of Dad to prop him up, with sources close to Prince Charles claiming he is not prepared to foot the bill of his youngest son’s new lifestyle.

Harry and Meghan currently get £2million a year from the Prince of Wales’ Sovereign Grant fund.

The first-in-line has already lavished a small fortune on his younger son, from his wedding to the fitting out Frogmore cottage – the Windsor house he is now largely going to vacate when he uproots to North America.

A friend says: ‘He doesn’t have unlimited resources. Harry needs to know that.’

 

Aides were today believed to have laid bare the punitive taxes Harry could face if he presses ahead with his plan to move to Canada.

But the pair are already millionaires. Their joint wealth is estimated to be around £18million, according to writer David McClure, who has investigated royal finances.

Harry inherited nearly £7 million from his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, but this will have grown with investment, and he is also thought to have had an inheritance from the Queen Mother, so is believed to have around £10-15 million.

The duchess, said to be worth £2-3 million, pocketed a reported £333,000 per season for six runs of the legal drama Suits, as well as earning an income from feature films and fashion collections.

In a glimpse at what the couple’s new ‘financially independent’ role could be, Meghan brokered a voiceover deal with Disney before going on her Christmas break to Canada.

After her one-to-one with Harry – followed by two hours of ‘calm’ discussions with him, Charles and William – Her Majesty agreed to a ‘transition period’ where the Duke and Duchess would wind down their Royal engagements as they spend more time in Canada.

The monarch said: ‘Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.

‘My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family.

‘Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.

‘Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.

‘It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.

‘These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.’

The Queen, who is desperate to chart a way out of the crisis raging through the Family ranks, has ordered courtiers to double down efforts to develops blueprint for the Sussexes future, to be completed within days.
