Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, want to thank Canada for the hospitality they received during their Christmas vacation.

A statement from Buckingham Palace says the royals will meet with Canada’s high commissioner to the United Kingdom at Canada House on Tuesday.

The statement says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to express their gratitude to Janice Charette and staff “for the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay in Canada.”

Afterwards, the duo will visit the Canada Gallery and view an exhibition by Indigenous artist, Skawennati, born in Kahnawake Mohawk Territory and based in Montreal.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were seen in North Saanich over the holiday season, sparking international headlines.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the family was spending Christmas in Canada but declined to give a specific location. Harry and Meghan had announced they would be taking a break from royal duties and would miss Christmas with Queen Elizabeth II. Instead, they chose to spend the holidays with the duchess’ mother, Doria Ragland.

At the end of December, the couple posted a video on the Sussex Royal Instagram account, showing highlights from 2019.
