Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Favorite Thing About Canada Might Be the Desserts

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are still adjusting to their new lives in Canada, but they seem to be enjoying things so far. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to the United Kingdom for a quick trip to finish out their royal duties in the beginning of March, but now, they’re back with Archie and enjoying everything their new, more-private lifestyle has to offer — including one super popular Canadian dessert.

Meghan and Harry are living more peacefully in Canada

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex couldn’t escape the media storm that surrounded them while living in the United Kingdom. The Sussexes took a holiday to Canada for about six weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, and it allowed them to spend some time under the radar and out of the news. Though the two likely knew they were going to move even before taking the trip, the peacefulness might have solidified their decision to leave the U.K. for good.

These days, Meghan and Harry are reportedly spending much more downtime together and with their son, Archie. Meghan has been spotted taking walks with her dogs and Archie, and she and Harry are reportedly hiking and doing yoga to relax.

Tonight in London, for their third consecutive year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Endeavour Fund Awards, which celebrates the achievements of those veterans injured in service who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year. By choosing to take on what seems impossible, these men and women not only set goals for themselves but have also inspired millions of people around the world. These annual awards bring together The Duke and The Duchess alongside wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and veterans as well as their families, friends and supporters of the military community. The Duke, who founded the @EndeavourFund, spoke on the night: • “The Endeavour Fund came from seeing the gaping hole that can be left after taking off that uniform. The power that sport and adventurous challenge plays in recovery, yes; but most of all – the chance to be part of a team again while attempting to achieve unthinkable challenges – as if being shot or blown up wasn’t enough, you guys continue to impress, inspire and challenge what it means to have a life changing injury.” • Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 108 projects that have directly assisted over 6,000 of those injured in service. Congratulations to all those who participated in endeavours over the last year and inspired others to push the boundaries of what’s possible! #EndeavorFundAwards

The pair visited the U.K. in early March for their last round of official royal duties.

The two are supposedly big fans of Nanaimo bars

Harry and Meghan returned to the U.K. back in January, where they attended a reception at Canada House and thanked the country for their stay. And according to Today, Canada House served iconic Nanaimo bars at the reception, which Harry and Meghan loved. The bars are named after Nanaimo, a city on Vancouver Island where the bars were first created.

Each bar consists of a wafer, nut, and coconut crumb base, topped with a layer of custard and a layer of chocolate ganache.

Harry reportedly ate the bars growing up

Surprisingly, Harry was already familiar with the bars before moving to Canada, and that likely isn’t the reason he and Meghan jumped ship. But it might be one of their favorite things about their new country. Meghan spent several years in Canada, so she was familiar with them, and former royal chef Darren McGrady said that Harry used to eat the bars growing up.

“I used to make [Nanaimo bars] (the Buckingham Palace recipe we got when The Queen visited Canada in 1983) for [Harry] and William at Kensington Palace when they had friends over,” McGrady tweeted about the treats.

The two have been indulging in some Canadian fast-casual food as well

Along with the Nanaimo bars, Harry and Meghan have reportedly been enjoying some Tim Horton’s sandwiches, too. The couple’s security team was seen picking up sandwiches a while back, and there was speculation they were for the couple. Of course, Meghan has always been a very clean eater, so they’re likely only indulging every now and then and are still keeping up very healthy diets regularly.

The couple ultimately seems happier in North America, and while they’ll certainly go back to the U.K. to visit, it doesn’t look like they’ll be returning permanently any time soon.
