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.”
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.”
