NIAGARA FALLS, ONT. (WKBW) — It's official, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are moving to Canada part-time. Queen Elizabeth granted the couple's wish for a more independent life as the inner royal circle met for "a showdown at Sandringham."

It's an exciting royal reality for Greater Toronto Area resident AnnaMarie Mandryk.

"The Canadians want them to come to Canada, and I do to," she said.

Most of the royal family was in attendance for Monday's royal summit. Meghan reportedly dialed in from Canada. She is believed to be in the Toronto area with baby Archie.

Paul Moxhay also made the trip from his home in England, to Canada to vacation in Toronto and Niagara Falls. He said he could see why the couple would consider moving to Toronto.

"I do feel that there's more of a bond, certainly more of a bond than in the USA," Moxhay said.

Markle's ties to Canada run deep, the former actress filmed the TV show "Suits" in Toronto. Where will Harry, a former helicopter pilot, work? Rainbow Air Inc. flies tours over Niagara Falls, and posted the below job opportunity for him on Twitter.
