Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Wish Fans a 'Happy Canada Day' With a Photo of Archie's Gift Jacket
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid tribute to a place dear to their hearts and wished their fans a “Happy Canada Day” on Instagram, alongside a cute photo of a gift for their son.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, through their official Instagram account, wished their millions of followers a “Happy Canada Day.” The post included a series of photos from the past where the royals were able to visit the country together.
The last photo was a cute little varsity jacket for baby Archie, with the initials “AW” embroidered on the right arm, obviously standing for Archie Windsor. Perhaps the jacket came as a gift from the royal fans of the couple.
Canada was once Markle’s home as she lived in Toronto for years while filming for the hit series “Suits.” On the other hand, Harry visited the country many times, and most recently attended the Invictus Games 2017 with Markle.
“Their Royal Highnesses have always been touched by the warmth, friendliness and hospitality of the Canadian people. They hope to be able to visit again as a family, and they send their great thanks to all of the kind Canadians who have sent such special gifts for Archie!” read the caption of the post.
During the start of their romance in 2016, Harry and Markle would spend time in each other’s home. The prince flew to Toronto to spend 2017 Easter with Markle, and later that year the now duchess debuted with Harry in the Invictus Games.
During the event, cameras would catch the couple holding hands at the Wheelchair Tennis semi-final and bonding with Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland. Their relationship was confirmed by the “Suits” actress the same month as she spoke to Vanity Fair.
“We’re a couple. We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time,” she said.
As all eyes were on Markle during the games, she couldn’t escape critics, and so BBC presenter, John Humphrys, indirectly commented on her choice of clothing that day, adopting the “French tuck.”
"That, I’m told, is the latest fashion trend — wearing your shirt with one half tucked in your waistband, and the other half hanging free,” Humphrys said. "When men do it, it’s because we are basically slobs and we don’t even notice. When women do it (OK — some women), it’s because they want to appear fashionable.”
But that was only the start of the criticism Markle faced as it continued to grow after her relationship with Harry developed and later joined the royal family.
