Are the Sussexes in Canada? Meghan and Harry wish fans a ‘very happy Thanksgiving’ with a maple leaf

They may be on an official break from royal duties, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are still very much engaged on Instagram.

This morning the couple wished their 9.9million followers a ‘very happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours’.

Using their trademark navy blue background with their royal cypher – the entwined initials of H and M below a coronet – they signed off their message: ‘Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ and included a maple leaf emoji in the description.

While this could just be a symbol for the autumnal season, it could hint that the couple have travelled to Canada for the holiday, where Meghan used to live while working as an actress filming the legal drama Suits.

This will be the Sussexes’ first Thanksgiving as a three, after they welcomed their son Archie Mountbatten Windsor in May.

‘She’s a talented chef and takes great pleasure in bringing people together over a family meal.

‘There won’t be any staff helping her – she’ll definitely be wearing the apron’. 

However reports vary over where the family will spend Thanksgiving, with some claiming Meghan will cook for the family at Windsor Castle.

The consideration of staying in the UK comes after Buckingham Palace confirmed a separate report that the couple will not spend Christmas at Sandringham with the Queen so they can recharge their batteries. 

The Thanksgiving post comes a day after the pair shared a stunning unseen photo from their wedding to celebrate two years since they announced the news of their engagement.

Taking to the Sussex Royal Instagram account, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote: ‘On this day, two years ago: 27th of November 2017, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the news of their engagement, later becoming Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

‘They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world.’
