Homes fit for royals for sale in North Saanich

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have returned to Greater Victoria

Paparazzi photographed Meghan Markle back in North Saanich’s Horth Hill Regional Park on Monday, bouncing baby Archie while walking two dogs and being trailed by security.

Prince Harry reunited with Meghan and their eight-month-old son Monday night, landing at Victoria’s International Airport before being whisked away in a waiting SUV.

The family spent the holidays at a mansion in North Saanich and are rumoured to be returning to live on the Island at least part-time.

The palace announced Saturday that the prince and his wife will give up public funding and try to become financially independent. The couple, who were named the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding day, are expected to spend most of their time in Canada while maintaining a home in England near Windsor Castle – in an attempt to build a more peaceful life.
