Prince Harry Was Just Spotted Grocery Shopping in Canada

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex are soaking up their final weeks of relaxation before the head back to the U.K. at the beginning of March to finish out their final royal duties. After April 1, the Sussexes will have officially relinquished their senior working royal roles for good.

Since announcing Megxit on Jan. 8, 2020 the duke and duchess have been living a low-key life on Vancouver Island in Canada. The Sussexes are renting out a massive $14.1 million mansion that sits on acres of land and grants them the privacy and the serenity that they’ve been craving.

In fact, aside from a couple of quick trips to the United States — once for a paid speaking engagement in Miami with JP Morgan and then for a trip to Stanford University where they held a brainstorming workshop around their new charity, the Sussexes have been loving their new lives and homebodies. In fact, the duke was just spotted grocery shopping.

Though they are carving out a plan for their lives that will eventually grant them complete financial independence from the royal family — speaking events like the $1 million they reportedly earned from the JP Morgan event will help sustain the Sussexes for now. “These plans take a lot of time, and staff are putting in the legwork to prepare it properly and make sure it delivers on the expectations and the couple’s ambitions,” an insider told People. “It’s full throttle for them right now. They have a lot happening in 2020, and it will be really exciting to see.”

Instead of rushing into work, the pair have been enjoying a much lighter schedule– their time together as a couple and being regular parents to their infant son, Archie Harrison.

“They both love to be outside and have been loving it there,” a source revealed to People. “When they’re not doing yoga or eating in, Harry will pick up sandwiches at a local spot, and Meghan walks her beloved rescue beagle Guy and the couple’s adopted Labrador. They go for long walks, they do yoga, and Meghan cooks. They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.”

Today is #earthday – an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have always done their own cooking and shopping

On her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig — the duchess often gushed about her love of cooking. In fact, she was roasting a chicken when the duke proposed to her. Despite her hectic royal schedule, Markle tried to cook for herself and the prince as often as possible when they were working royals.

For his part, Prince Harry has always done his own grocery shopping — even when he was single. “I do my own shopping,” the prince said to Newsweek. “Sometimes, when I come away from the meat counter in my local supermarket, I worry someone will snap me with their phone. But I am determined to have a relatively normal life.”
