Prince Harry, Meghan Markle felt part of ‘community’ with Canadians
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle fled to Vancouver Island to recover from media attacks in 2019.
The couple spent a few months away from the drama alongside their son Archie and their two dogs, to cool off.
Writing in his memoir ‘Spare’, Harry reveals that they were very well received by the locals and suggested they were treated like normal human beings.
He writes: “We ventured out timidly, took the road to the nearest village, walked along the sidewalk like people in a horror movie. Where will the attack come from? Which way? But that didn’t happen. People didn’t panic. They weren’t looking. They haven’t reached for their iPhones. Everyone knew or felt we were going through something.
He adds: “They gave us space, while managing to make us feel welcome, with a kind smile, a wave. They made us feel like part of a community. They made us feel normal.
