Some of the royal couple's highlights included their tour of Africa, Remembrance Day, Meghan and Kate Middleton attending Wimbledon, the WellChild Awards, and announcing their son's birth.
The most talked-about moment of the video is the picture of Harry holding a smiling Archie in his arms. The two are buddle up in winter gear, complete with woolen hats, with the mountains of Vancouver in the background.
Since taking a six-week break from their royal duties, Harry and Markle chose to take a low key trip from the spotlight, and enjoy family time Canada.
Their attempt to stay under the radar didn't go quite as planned when the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau extended a warm gesture in a tweet welcoming them to the country.
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.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) December 21, 2019
After much speculation about their exact whereabouts, it was reported that they were spotted in Greater Victoria, Vancouver.
The couple chose a winter getaway in the mountains, where it is believed Markle's mother, Doria Ragland joined them.
Bev Koffel, who spotted the royal couple the Deep Cove Chalet, which she owns revealed she saw the couple and spoke to their security, said:
"Horth Hill's become a very popular place now. And they jog around, so they've been seen. It's kind of exciting. I hope everything goes fine for them. They're breaking away from tradition and I just wish them all the best."

The Harrys and Markle's decision to take a break over the holiday season away from Queen Elizabeth and the family, during which they missed many royal festive traditions, came with a lot of controversies.
However, the palace put out a statement and revealed that after spending two consecutive Christmas' in England, the couple was given the Queen's blessing to have their own private Christmas.
