A Canadian author has claimed that people in his home country “are already starting to scour” about the possible security costs of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Columnist Mark Steyn said that there was increasing concern about the possibility that Canadians would pick up the bill to protect the royal couple – which is estimated at $ 1.7 million a year.
It was confirmed yesterday that the queen and the rest of the royal family were working on a Megxit plan that would allow the couple to spend more time in the country.
According to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Canadians are ‘very supporters’ of the fact that the royal couple live in Canada, but there are still ‘many discussions to be had’.

Speaking of the issue on Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, Steyn said tonight that Canadians would be smart with the possible costs they would have to bear.
He added: “At this moment, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Mounties, are required to collect the half-million dollar tab for the security costs of Harry and Meghan in Canada. People are already starting to sand. “
Concern was expressed about the potential burden for Canadian taxpayers when Harry and Meghan first came forward and considered a switch to North America.
Following the Queen’s statement, Twitter overdrive with some Canadians who promised to riots if they had to pay money to cover the cost of protecting the couple.
Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau has since said that the government has not yet discussed the possible costs.
Harry and Meghan have close ties with Canada with Meghan from California who describes it as her “second home” after the UK.
Meghan lived in Toronto for six years while filming Suits. It is the city where the couple had a secret relationship for five years before their relationship was revealed to the world in October 2016.
Steyn also labeled images of Prince Harry who, for work with the Disney boss, called his wife “the lowest point in the monarchy” in almost a century.

He said that the recently excavated video of the Duke of Sussex who tried to protect voice-over work during a movie premiere last year was “pathetic.”
He compared Harry’s attempts with the abdication of Edward VIII when he gave up the throne in 1936 so that he could marry the American divorced woman Wallis Simpson.
In the clip, taken at the Lion King premiere in London last July, Harry wears the head of Disney Bob Iger and reveals his former actress’ interest in doing voice-over.
During the muted conversation, captured by a fan, the prince gestures at Meghan and says, “Do you know she’s doing voiceovers?”
Iger can be heard answering: “Ah, I didn’t know that.” Harry then answers: ‘You seem surprised. She is really interested. “The Disney chef then says,” We’d like to try it. “
This weekend it was revealed that Meghan had signed a voice-over deal with the Walt Disney Company in exchange for a donation to a wildlife charity.
About the Fox News recording of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Steyn said: “That is the absolute lowest point of the monarchy in the past hundred years.
“I think of all the pathetic things the Duke of Windsor did after he renounced the throne when he entertained wealthy Americans and gave them a sort of pseudo-glimpse into royal life.
“[That’s] nothing beats the fact that your wife is really available for Lion King 7 or whatever it is. ”
Larry Busch, an ex-Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officer, said he doesn’t think the royal couple could refuse Canadian security, even if they wanted to (in the photo the Queen inspects Mounties during a visit to Canada in 2010)
