Abolishing the monarchy in Canada would be ‘enormously difficult,’ experts say


Calls for Canada to rethink its relationship to the monarchy have been mounting after an explosive interview between Prince Harry, Meghan and Oprah Winfrey on Sunday. In a damning tell-all, Meghan revealed living with the royals left her feeling suicidal and unsupported, prompting her and her husband’s royal departure in January of last year. She also indicated there were racist undertones in Buckingham Palace, claiming there were discussions where concerns were expressed over how dark the colour of her son’s skin would be. “I think it’s clear. I’ve said it in the past: I don’t see the benefit of the monarchy in Canadians’ lives,” NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said Tuesday.
