For Christmas, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex went to Vancouver Island, where they spent the holiday with their firstborn baby Archie, away from all the media and all that thanks to David Foster. The celebrated Canadian musician revealed that he helped organize the royals stay here while speaking to The Daily Mail. The 69-year-old knows the royal couple through his wife Katherine McPhee, who went to school with Meghan.
David Foster told the paper: “‘ I felt honoured that I was able to help Meghan there because I’m a Canadian and we’re a commonwealth country, we’re the Crowns. It’s important to us, so I grew up with that kind of sentiment. I was really happy to be able to help them to find a respite just to take a little time off.”
This was baby Archie’s first-ever Christmas, and it seems that the young one had the best one. The family of three spent Christmas on the Canadian Island in a modest 14 million dollar mansion. David is friends with the owner of the mansion, so it’s evident how he helped the royals with their stay in the country.
The couple is on their six-week-long break from royal duties, spending some well-deserved family time and focusing on their firstborn. They have been keeping a low profile during their visit to Canada, but they couldn’t resist offering help to a couple during a New Year’s hike on Wednesday. According to reports, the royal couple were on a hike in Vancouver Island’s Horth Hill Regional Park with a group of friends when they ran in a couple trying to take a selfie with the natural scenery behind them. Being the great people they are the royals offered to take the photo of the couple for them.
The couple, Asymina Kantorowicz and Iliya Pavlovic explain that at first, they didn’t recognize the group of people, realizing that that was Meghan Markle and Prince Harry only after recognizing Abigail Spencer, former co-star to Meghan on the TV series Suits and close friends.
