Prince Harry may have to go back to school if he wants to settle down in Canada with his family. The Duke of Sussex has just touched down in Vancouver to begin a new chapter outside of the royal household, but speculation is already mounting about how, exactly, he plans to do that.
Meghan and Harry have not said how long they plan to stay in Canada with their son Archie, but if they decide to stay there for good, they will have to apply for permanent residency. Despite being one of the most famous men in the world, this will be easier said than done for the Prince.
Canadian lawyer Mario Bellissimo says the Duke’s age, 35, past work experience, and the fact he did not go to university, will all ‘weigh heavily against him’ if he goes through the immigration application process.

TORONTO — Prince Harry has touched down in Canada to be reunited with his wife Meghan and baby Archie after a whirlwind trip to the U.K. where he finalized his family’s plans to step back from their royal duties.
On Monday evening, the Duke of Sussex landed at Vancouver International Airport shortly after 7 p.m. local time before he caught a connecting WestJet flight to Victoria International Airport on Vancouver Island.
Meghan and Archie have been reportedly staying at a secluded beachfront mansion on Vancouver Island while Prince Harry was in the U.K. for two weeks.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says there are still a lot of discussions to be had about who will cover security costs while Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are living in Canada.
Security experts have raised concerns that the Sussexes’ move could be costly to Canadian taxpayers. Traditionally Canada covers police costs associated with the couple when they are travelling on official business, but a more permanent move is potentially a different issue.
TORONTO — An emergency alert warning of an unspecified “incident” at a Toronto-area nuclear power plant Sunday morning was mistakenly sent to people across Ontario during a training exercise, prompting an apology from the province’s solicitor general.
Phones in Ontario received emergency notifications alerting them to the supposed incident at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station in Pickering, Ont. shortly before 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
Although the message was sent out to the entire province, as is customary with the Alert Ready system, it stated that the bulletin only applied to people living within 10 kilometres of the nuclear plant.
“An incident was reported at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. There has been NO abnormal release of radioactivity from the station and emergency staff are responding to the situation,” the notification read.
“People near the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station DO NOT need to take any protective actions at this time.”
OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the nation Thursday afternoon amid multiple reports pointing the finger at Iran for the downing of a Ukraine International Airlines flight, killing all on board including 138 people who were headed to Canada.
Addressing assembled media in Ottawa, Trudeau said Canada has intelligence from multiple sources that indicates the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.
“We have intelligence from multiple sources including our Allies and our own intelligence, the intelligence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface to air missile. This may well have been unintentional.”
