Inside Vancouver mansion where Meghan & Harry stayed after Megxit as pair visit ‘happy place’ & double down on rebrand

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in Canada, just days after launching their major rebrand.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have always been open about their love for the country – and even fled there during Megxit.

Just days ago the pair were fiercely criticised for launching a new website as part of their rebrand, with one royal expert slamming them for “cashing in” on their royal ties.

Meghan today broke her silence on the new site, ignoring critics while she boasted about its design.

She and Harry then arrived at Vancouver’s Rockies Ski Resort to launch next year’s Invictus Games.

The couple beamed as they made their way across the ice to meet veterans – with the prince boasting a smile ear to ear as he gave sit-skiing a go.

While in Canada, he is expected to tell crowds how much the country means to the royal duo, according to The Telegraph.

Harry fell in love with the “pace of life” on Vancouver Island when he and Meghan moved into a £11million mansion there after quitting as royals.

At the time it was said the Mille Fleurs home near Victoria, British Columbia would have cost more than £100,000 to rent.

The idyllic bolthole has stunning views and boasts eight bedrooms and two private beaches.

The couple called the spot home in the months after Megix, spending their first Christmas with baby Archie there.

The French country-inspired mansion sits on its own, kept private by dozens of trees and mostly surrounded by water.

The home itself is well-lit, with sunshine pouring in from a glass roof in one room.

It has massive wooden beams, with beautiful chandeliers hanging from them, and the kitchen boasts two marble-top islands.

There’s also a formal dining room, a panelled office with a fireplace, and massive two-storey living room.

It opens to a chef’s kitchen with pizza oven, a games room with wet bar, a media room and a wine tasting room.

The house is framed by beautiful flower-filled gardens, which stand out against the grey-stoned home.

It doesn’t seem the sort of place a royal couple would go.

With a whopping 11,416sqf space, the home also has a 2,349sqf guest cottage – which boasts three beds and two bathrooms.

One local, who did not wish to be named, told The Sun in 2020: “I was very surprised to hear they were staying there because it’s always been a mystery about who actually owns it.

“It doesn’t seem the sort of place a royal couple would go.”

The mystery over the property’s ownership raised concerns over the couple’s acquaintances as they seek “financial independence”.

It was later revealed a controversial Canadian billionaire with links to the Clintons owned the home.

Locals on the island first spotted Harry and Meghan around December 18, 2019 enjoying hikes and jogs — with the pair even stopping to take a selfie for another couple on New Year’s Day.

The estate agent who sold the Canadian mansion said at the time: “It’s a beautiful property, it’s one of the nicest ones on the island. It has great privacy.

“I think the current owner’s done quite a renovation.”
