And it's apparently down to the abuse they have faced.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are one of the most talked-about couples in the world, recently moving from their former Kensington Palace home to Frogmore Cottage on the Queen’s Windsor estate.

In just under a year however, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made news once more for rumours of another move.

The move in question that people are speculating about would see the couple leaving the country however, with Canada named as the most likely spot.

‘Meghan and Harry have considered moving to Canada, as it’s part of the Commonwealth’, a source told Us Weekly, going on to cite the online abuse the couple have faced in recent months as the reason.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were forced to take a stand this month, taking legal action against the Mail on Sunday after the tabloid had published a private letter that Meghan Markle had written to her father, Thomas Markle.

Following the action, Prince Harry issued a public statement on his concerns for his wife and his fears of history repeating itself, with his mother Princess Diana suffering the same abuse.

‘There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives,’ Prince Harry wrote in his statement. ‘Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level. We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this.’

The statement continued: ‘Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.

‘We thank you, the public, for your continued support. It is hugely appreciated. Although it may not seem like it, we really need it.’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are yet to address the rumours of a move to Canada.
