- Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are ‘genuinely happy’ in Canada, a source says
- Couple are ‘not stopped by locals’ and ‘have freedom to do whatever’ its claimed
- Date of ‘Megxit’ has been confirmed as April 1 and the couple will no longer hold a Buckingham Palace
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are ‘genuinely happy’ living in Canada because ‘it’s a world away’ from their old life in the UK, a source has claimed.
Speaking to US Weekly, the source said: ‘Harry and Meghan escaped the chaos back home and are genuinely happy. They’re really enjoying Canada; it’s a completely different world from what they’re used to in London.’
The couple lived in Kensington Palace in London when Meghan first came to the UK, before moving to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor after they married.
Since relocating to Vancouver Island the couple have the ‘freedom to do whatever they want’ because the locals ‘don’t bother them’, the source added.

‘Meghan endured a lot of stress in England. She’s happy to be away from all that. Right now they’re all about getting Archie settled’ they continued.
It comes as the date of ‘Megxit’ has been confirmed, and the couple will no longer hold a Buckingham Palace office from April 1.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussexes resigned as senior royals in January in a move to become financially independent. They are currently living in a £10million mansion on Vancouver Island.
Going forward they will be represented by their UK foundation, and Harry will retain the ranks of Major, Lieutenant Commander, and Squadron Leader – but his honorary military positions will not be used during a 12-month trial period.

The Sussexes are expected to be in Britain regularly over the next few months with Harry at an Invictus Games event on February 28.
Harry and Meghan will then attend the Endeavour Fund awards on March 5, and Harry will be at Silverstone with racing driver Lewis Hamilton on March 6.
They will then both be at the Mountbatten Festival of Music on March 7, and Meghan will mark International Women’s Day on March 8.
The couple will then join the Queen and the Royal Family for the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
It comes after Harry, 35, and Meghan’s first post-Megxit appearance earlier this month was at an event held by US banking giant JP Morgan in Miami – an organisation which has been embroiled in a succession of controversies.
Last week it emerged Prince Harry’s team held talks with Goldman Sachs – an investment bank accused by the US government and senate of misleading investors about the value of subprime mortgages and contributing to the financial crisis.
Other controversies have ranged from being linked to the 1MDB fraud and a lawsuit brought by former female employees to the bank’s role in the financial crisis.
Prince Harry insisted the talks were to benefit his charities rather than bolster the Sussex Royal brand – a label which the Queen and senior officials have decided is no longer tenable for the couple to keep.
