Prince Harry and Meghan are planning a trip to Vancouver, but some locals really don’t like them

Prince Harry and Megan Markle plan to come to Vancouver, BC in 2025, and there are already protests about it.

The famous couple isn’t new to BC, and some people don’t want a repeat of the last time they were in town.

The Duke of Sussex recently announced that the 2025 Invictus Games will take place in Vancouver and Whistler.

In February of that year, the international sports competition will arrive in the province and “will incorporate adapted winter sports for the first time,” says its website.

Prince Harry is a Founding Patron of the Invictus Games Foundation and said in the announcement that “The Invictus Games Vancouver-Whistler 2025 will offer a global platform to expand the range and profile of disabled winter sports.”

“With deep respect, I am also pleased to share that the Games in Canada will be held in partnership with First Nations, in a spirit of truth and reconciliation with indigenous communities,” he added.

After the announcement, a petition was started on Change.org, called: “Stop Just Harry from exploiting indigenous atrocities.”

“Harry and Meghan never thanked the Canadian taxpayers who paid for their safety the last time they were in Canada. They don’t deserve our hard-earned taxpayer money, nor do they deserve to exploit the damage done by the recent discovery of unmarked graves. , “, states the petition page.

The petition has garnered 417 signatures as of April 26.

Despite the claims, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Canada House in London in 2020 to thank the High Commissioner for the hospitality they felt during their stay in Canada.

Still, people on Twitter are talking about the couple coming to the province for the games.

The people did not hold back.

Some disagreed that Prince Harry was involved in the games.

At this time, the couple still plans to come to the province, but there are still a few years before it happens, where this petition could gain some traction.
