Prince Harry Teased Meghan Markle To Speak French At Canada House


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are officially back to work after a brief hiatus during the holidays!

The couple visited Canada for a few weeks to spend time together as a family after a busy year. Harry and Meghan made their 2020 debut returning to their royal duties by visiting Canada House to thank them for their hospitality.

While speaking to the staff, Harry suggested that Meghan should speak in French, which is one of Canada’s two official languages. “No!” Meghan teased back.

The Duchess of Sussex studied French for six years but lost some of her abilities throughout the years because of not actively practicing. She once shared on her former blog The Tig that re-learning French was one of her new year’s resolutions.

“Run a marathon. Stop biting my nails. Stop swearing. Re-learn French. These make my New Year’s resolution list nearly (AKA actually every) single year. The marathon hasn’t happened. The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple drinks,” she wrote.

“Then there’s the French — a language I studied through high school and then lost as I immersed myself in speaking Spanish with the Argentinians during my stint in Buenos Aires. I have put my little Rosetta Stone headset in my eager ears every year, resolving to do interviews en français, but much to my chagrin, it hasn’t stuck.”

Meghan stuck to English as she spoke to the staff, “I want to say Happy New Year and thank you, and as my husband said, my goodness it was just such an incredible time we were able to have there and with our son too.”

“And just to be able to take in the warmth that we experienced from the people but also just to walk around and just see the beauty of Canada,” she added. “To see Archie go ‘ahhh’ when you walk by and just see how stunning it is, so it meant a lot to us.”
