    Guess WHAT! News flash...Harry and Meghan are coming home.Apparently their in a bad way cos of the Paparazzi and William,The Queen and Charles said,their vulnerable and need to come back.This means...A.Harry realises he has shat on those veterans and he feeling guilty.B.He upset at losing his family,bending to Meghans will.zC I reckon theres a divorce on the cards.They still wont get their HRH back,but want to live at Frogmore.Meghans decided she too upset at the Paps.I find that weird???It was staged.The security with her were emberling along,no rescue mission needed.UMMMMM.I SMELL A RAT!A GREAT BIG CARBON FOOTED RAT! Like I said at the time,everyone lijes to go on holiday,but you dont pack up stix and move on your wife's whim to Canada!Specially if they dont WANT YOU!!!Twats!!

        Please Harry and Meghan don't go to Canada come to America we in America are smart enough to realize that the U.K. will continue to pay for your security for God sake you still royal whereever you go, Canada is showing their true colors so why bother with them come here and do all the charity work you and Harry want, this is your home not Canada, they don't mind using you guys to bring in tourism and build up charities but make it clear that they don't want to pay for your security even though they already pay taxes to the queen lol

            Why he compares two quitting royals(still getting most of their daddy’s allowance thou...) with Barack Obama? At least he didn’t quit his presidency because it’s too “public”, move to Canada, and ask for free full security...

                    If the Canadian government is considering spending my taxes on those two individuals that means there is enough money to cover for canadians needs and perhaps consider to lower my federal taxes... Meagan can go to USA and cook for trump.

                      I have been working two jobs for the past 25 years why can they work....beside they have to go through the prosses of becoming canadian citizens to be able to live here , what's next,archie is going to get child tax.

                        Here is my opinion....if Meagan and harry cant afford to pay for their own security....I have the solution, go back were u came from OR move to a cheaper home so you can afford security.....why should my taxes go out to pay for them.give me a break.

                          The tax payer should revolt . Let them pay for their own security . If they come to the states they’ll pay for their own . Barrack Obama has secret service . He’s a former president . 1.7 million could go toward the needs of the poor people . They are no better than anyone else .

                                    They should pay for security themselves,after all they chose to leave!They are multi millionaires with an income of millions from Prince Charles!!!Harry hasn;t had to pay for anything ever....so if he wants to be ordinary,welcome to the real world!

                                                    There a reason the queen won’t allow them to work for her any more....they wanted to. But then they would still have their expenses paid by the crown...even Meghan’s cloths were part of that expense. That’s what people meant by having your cake and eating it to. They still wanted everything paid for and also make money off the foundation and titles....do and say what ever they wanted. If they want independence from the crown , royal media, and Britain...then let go of those purse strings from all and grow up, be responsible for their own spending and luxury habits.

                                                      The real issue here is actually whether Canada still want to have Queen and Gavernor General.If they still want to be part of commenwealth country then they will not mind to have royal family and Will pay the cost of the security

Whatever the cost of security, is a pitence in comparison to the amount of tax they will be paying as private working citizens, swings and roundabouts Canada will benefit in the long run.

Holidays, private jets, private get aways, the use of crown properties e.g.Frogmore Cottage and millions of pounds from Prince Charles and HM The Queen. The first guy talking about security is deluded, they decided to dump themselves on Canada because Donald Trump is president. This crass and self entitled attitude, not preparing Canada, is the same dissrepectful way they treated the Queen. Canadians need to wise up, this couple are very expensive to maintain. In the UK they went through and discarded 4 luxury homes and rejected them all after just 20 months. Theres no way Meghan wants to be out of the public eye, shes a publicity junkie.

So how can we afford to give money to these two mulitimillionares for security? ???
