Baby Archie, son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, spent his first Christmas in style!
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated the holiday in a $14.1 million waterfront owned by an unknown multi-millionaire, Daily Mail reported. Both Harry and Meghan spent time with the Duchess of Sussex’s mother Doria Ragland.
Justin Trudeau, prime minister of Canada, confirmed to multiple outlets that the royal couple was staying in the eight-bedroom estate on Vancouver Island. Locals in the area also noticed that cameras and fences filled the property as the mansion was swarmed with security guards.
Both Prince Harry and Markle shared a Christmas message to their followers on their Instagram page. The photo was captioned, “Wishing you All a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.”
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s security team attempted to make a holiday reservation at the Deep Cove Chalet in Canada, they were rejected over “security concerns.”
Bev Koffel owns the waterfront restaurant with her husband, chef Pierre Koffel.
Despite meeting with the security detail in advance, her husband refused to the reservation, much to her disappointment, because they were unable to accommodate the amount of security required.
However, Bev told the Vancouver Sun that she hopes the royal couple will dine at the restaurant one day adding, “Let them have their peace and quiet. For us to be so lucky to have them in the area, how lucky is that? I wish them all the privacy they can possibly get. They deserve it.”
The royal couple decided to forego the traditional Christmas at Sandringham for a vacation on the Vancouver Island with their 7-month-old son, Archie, and Markle’s mother.
