Prince Harry wants his wife Meghan Markle to practice her foreign language skills!
Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended their first royal engagement of 2020 and paid a visit to Canada House in London. According to People, while speaking to gathered staff, Prince Harry suggested that Markle talk to them in French (one of Canada’s two official languages).
“No!” she immediately responded with a laugh. Although, she is totally capable of doing so.
The Duchess of Sussex studied French for six years, but that wasn't her only experience with foreign languages. She also completed an internship at the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires during her time at Northwestern University where she learned to speak Spanish, according to her official page on the royal family’s website. Not to mention, she used to live in Toronto (for six years) while filming Suits, giving her ample time to practice her skills.
While at Canada House, Prince Harry and Markle met with Janice Charette, the High Commissioner in Canada to the U.K, as well as staff members who provided them with warm hospitality during their recent trip to Canada. They also stopped by the Canada Gallery, where they met members of the High Commission and browsed a special exhibition by Indigenous Canadian artist Skawennati.
This isn’t the first time Prince Harry and Markle visited Canada House in London. Back in March 2019, the duke and duchess stopped by the historic building in celebration of Commonwealth Day. Two months after the visit, Markle gave birth to the couple’s first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Merci, Prince Harry. We appreciate the effort!
