The paper published an editorial Monday entitled "Harry and Meghan, and why members of the Royal Family cannot live in Canada," which says the move violates laws that keep Canada separate from the British monarchy that previously ruled the country.

The article says that allowing the royal couple to live in Canada would halt efforts to maintain "Canada's unique and highly successful monarchy".
"A royalty living in this country does not agree with the longstanding nature of the relationship between Canada and Britain, and Canada and the Crown," the editorial said.

"Moreover, with the 1931 Westminster Statute, Canada's relationship with Britain has been defined as one of the same and independent countries," the editorial explains.
"Sussex are working on their own personal problems and Canadians wish them luck," added the newspaper. "Canada welcomes people of all religions, nationalities and races, but if you are a senior member of our Royal Family, this country cannot become your home."

The article, widely considered Canada's most respectable, ended by saying that royalty it cannot use the nation as "a recovery home for anyone who wants to leave Britain while remaining royalty".
Harry and Markle announced last week that they plan to "retreat" from their royal duties and split their time between London and North America. After a personal meeting between the senior members of the Royal Family, Queen Elizabeth II agreed to the couple's part-time move to Canada during a "transition period. "
