image for 73% of Canadians don’t want to cover costs for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle: poll

The overwhelming majority of Canadians aren’t on board with paying for costs associated with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle living in the country, according to a new poll.

Only three per cent of Canadians said they would be open to footing the bill for the couple and their son, Archie.

Nineteen per cent of respondents said they would be OK with paying some costs, but not all.

Many Canadians also don’t have strong opinions on the royals’ recent announcement they will live part time in Canada.

For example, 66 per cent of Canadians think of Prince William as a working royal.

Politicians have also weighed in on whether Prince Harry and Markle will receive public funds when they live in Canada.

In 2016, 38 per cent of Canadians said the monarchy should not continue, but that number is now 45 per cent. »
