After news broke that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are considering setting down roots in Canada, The New York Times penned a piece on the move. However, their headline isn’t sitting well with Canadians.
In a tweet from the publication, they wrote: “Many Canadians are giddy at the prospect that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could be moving to Canada, injecting some razzle dazzle to the sprawling, bone-chillingly cold country.”
Being able to laugh at ourselves, Canadian Twitter was quick to tease being a “bone-chillingly cold country.”
“If they choose Ottawa, said one, they can squint hard and pretend the Parliament is a gilded palace,” wrote one person.
Another added, “Original draft of this story described Canada as ‘frigid, bleak wasteland.’ Editor softened it to ‘sprawling, bone-chillingly cold country.'”
An additional comment read, “YES!! Please hurry!! These igloos are freezing and our nearest neighbour is 4 kilom-sorry, 2.48 miles away. We are lonely and bored and could use some razzle-dazzle. Thanks.”
“Wow SOMEONE has something against Bonhomme,” someone else quipped.
The term “Razzle Dazzle” was even trending on Twitter for a good portion of Saturday.
Prince Harry and Meghan did spend six weeks in North Saanich on Vancouver Island over Christmas and are now getting ready to move over to North America on a more permanent basis. As of this point, the couple has not given any indication as to where they are looking to buy or rent a home, but Canada seems to be the popular choice.
