Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have made a discreet arrival in Vancouver, Canada, as they embark on a three-day trip that underscores their commitment to the Invictus Games set for next year. captured the couple's private jet touching down in the City of Glass shortly after midday, following a brief flight from Santa Barbara, the nearest airport to their Montecito residence.

Their jet made a swift 39-minute stopover in Vancouver before heading out to Victoria, completing the brief journey in a mere 15 minutes, covering just 34 nautical miles. 

This visit evokes memories of their previous stay at the Mille Fleurs mansion in North Saanich on Vancouver Island back in January 2020, a serene period prior to their eventual move to California amid the escalating Covid-19 crisis.

Supporting a female-founded company with a catalog of thought-provoking and highly entertaining podcasts is a fantastic way to kick off 2024."
