Prince Harry arrives on Vancouver Island to begin new life

Prince Harry has arrived on Vancouver Island to begin his new life with Meghan and baby Archie.

The Duke of Sussex was whisked away by a car waiting on the tarmac just days after he and Meghan agreed a deal with the Queen to step back as senior royals.

Sky's US correspondent Greg Milam, said: "It's only a three minute drive to the house where they spent six weeks over Christmas and where the duchess returned 10 days ago to be reunited with their son."

No aides were present during the informal "catch-up" chat in a room upstairs at the summit.

He told those gathered at a dinner on Sunday night: "It brings me great sadness that it has come to this. The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly.

"It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges.

"And I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.

"What I want to make clear is we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you.

"Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible.

"I've accepted this, knowing that it doesn't change who I am or how committed I am."
