Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Welcomed by Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau in a Sweet Tweet

The Prime Minister of Canada extends a warm gesture in a tweet to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as he welcomes them to the country for their holiday break.

Following confirmation from the Palace that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be spending their controversial six-week break from their royal duties in Canada, the Prime Minister announced:

"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."

Canada holds a special place for Markle, who spent many years living in Toronto while she filmed the hit show, "Suits."

Recently, one of the charities she used to work with thanked the couple for promoting their organization as part of their "Twelve Days of Christmas" initiative to highlight worthwhile charities.

We feel very grateful and honoured to have been highlighted by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle, as one of 12 charities doing important work worldwide. 🙏🏻 This photo has Meghan volunteering in our kitchen! ❤ . The couple said: “With the festive holiday season upon us, it’s also a reminder to reflect on those in need – those who may feel lonely, hungry, homeless, or may be experiencing the holidays for the first time without loved ones. It’s an important time of year to help those around you who may be less fortunate, or who would appreciate even the smallest act of kindness. Continuing our monthly tradition of highlighting accounts that do good, and inspired by the “Twelve Days of Christmas” - we have selected twelve organisations caring for those in need - especially at this time of year.” . Meghan Markle was an active supporter and volunteer of St. Felix Centre during her time living in the city while working on Suits. She volunteered on a regular basis in our kitchen as part of our Community Meals Program. The Duchess also donated food from the set of Suits, and on one Thanksgiving she brought in all the food, turkeys and the fixings for over 100 people. . Through our Twitter account we responded to the announcement: “Thank you! Many people here have fond memories of Duchess Meghan volunteering with us – though we remember her just as 'the lovely Meghan'. We're happy to see she continues supporting vulnerable people now as a member of the Royal Family. We'd love for her to visit us again one day.” . Thousands of people have responded to the call to visit our social media platforms, many of them urging people to make a donation to our Lighting the Way Christmas campaign. . Many vulnerable people in our Toronto need your support! If you are planning your holiday giving, please consider making a donation to our Lighting the Way campaign - link in our bio. Your support can make all the difference! . #Toronto #stfelixcentre #homeless #charity #harryandmeghan #sussexroyal #meghanmarkle #volunteer #lovetoronto #blogto #curiocitytoronto #hypetoronto #libertyvillage #queenwest #toreats #tdot #6ixgrams #torontolife #igerstoronto

In a never before seen picture, Markle looked casual wearing a baseball cap, striped shirt and, bomber jacket. She appeared make-up free and accessorized with a gold plated necklace.

The St. Felix Centre said that during the time Markle was working on "Suits," she often volunteered as part of their "Community Meals Program."

Spotlight on: The Hubb Community Kitchen It was just one year ago that The Duchess of Sussex made a special visit to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen to help prepare meals for those in need. The connection between The Duchess and these women began a year prior, as she supported them in the creation of “Together”, a charity cookbook which celebrates the power of cooking to bring communities together. The cookbook showcases recipes from women whose community was affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. Their incredible stories and personal recipes placed “Together” on The New York Times Bestseller List and The Sunday Times Booklist. Today, the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen continue to have a positive impact in their community, across the UK, and around the world. Whether it’s providing a safe space for women and children to come for a hot meal, supporting local schools, serving free lunches to senior citizens, partnering with the Red Cross to provide lunches for refugees, or feeding the homeless - the Hubb helps and heals through their support and sustenance. Thank you, ladies, for the leadership and inspiration that your cooking and love of community brings to all those around you. We remain so very proud of the good work that you continue to do, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings! Photo © PA / Hubb Kitchen / Jenny Zarin

It was revealed that she would donate food from the set, and one thanksgiving she brought so much turkey and other foods that she was able to feed 100 people at the shelter.

It is unclear if Meghan and Harry will visit the centre during her stay in Canada and make community meals. However, their absence was noticed during a larger meal gathering at Buckingham Palace.

Four generations of The Royal Family have come together to support The Royal British Legion's 'Together at Christmas' initiative. The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince George, joined forces to prepare special Royal British Legion Christmas puddings at Buckingham Palace this week. The Queen is Patron of The Royal British Legion and the puddings will become the centerpieces of next year's "Together at Christmas" get-togethers, hosted by the charity. The Queen and Their Royal Highnesses were joined by The Royal British Legion’s care home chef Alex Cavaliere and four veterans - Colin Hughes, Liam Young, Lisa Evans and Barbara Hurman. 📷 Chris Jackson / Getty Images @RoyalBritishLegion

A few days ago, Queen Elizabeth hosted her annual pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. The couple did not attend because of their decision to travel.

Members of the royal family who arrived at the lunch included Prince William and his family, Princess Anne, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, Mike Tindall, Zara Tindall, Princess Eugenie, Jack Brooksbank, and Princess Beatrice.

It is reported, the royal family is not mad about the couple's decision to spend Christmas away from the them. 

However, a source close to the Palace said the family is disappointed considering the Queen and Prince Philip's advancing age, as they miss such memorable family gatherings.
