Princess Anne Is Visiting Canada and Could Potentially Be Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s First Guest

Now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially wrapped up their last engagements as senior members of the royal family, the couple is able to settle into their new life in Canada. And it looks like they could potentially have a royal visitor sooner than expected.

Princess Anne is set to spend time in Canada in her role as Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Canadian Navy, attending a handful of engagements between May 1 and May 3. Though nothing has been suggested by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex publicly, this would be the perfect opportunity for the Princess Royal to personally pay them a visit at their new residence.

Since late fall, Meghan and Harry, their 9-month-old son Archie and their two rescue dogs have been ensconced at an elegant mansion on Vancouver Island. Perched on the shores of the Saanich Inlet of North Saanich, British Columbia, the home is truly a sight to behold.

According to the Mirror, the $14 million dollar mansion is fit for, well, royalty. Not only does the 10,000 square-foot home boast a pizza oven, a game room, a wine tasting room and, strangely, a 17th century imported French fireplace, but it also features a guest cottage for visitors. Of course, the well-appointed home also includes many bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a formal dining room, a two-story living room, a wet bar and a media room.

Princess Anne has traveled to Canada several times in the past. In 2014, she flew to North America with her husband to attend the Remembrance Day celebrations in Ottawa.

However, if the Princess Royal decides to not pay a visit to the duke and duchess during her short trip, they will most likely be reunited when the couple returns to the U.K. to attend the Queen's birthday.

Why Is Princess Anne, Not Charlotte, the Princess Royal?
