Ottawa: Canadian monarchists have demanded that Prince Harry should be made their king.
The fact that the head of the state only visits the country every two or three years appears to have disappointed these monarchists, with reports saying that they now want the Prince, who is third in line to the throne, to set up home in the capital, Ottawa, to give the Royal family a permanent presence and to silence those who believe the country should have an elected head of state.
Etienne Boisvert, the Quebec provincial spokesman for the Monarchist League of Canada, has said that the Royal family is “an institution that knows how to reinvent itself” and that he believes it is the right time for a radical change.
“Prince Harry, who has virtually no chance of becoming king, could set himself up here and found a Canadian branch of the Royal family. Or the future king could rotate – six months in Canada, six in Australia, six in London,” The Telegraph quoted Boisvert, as saying.
As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge prepare for their visit to Canada later this week, the Quebecois Resistance Network (RRQ) is planning reportedly a “William, Get Lost” protest to disturb the visit, having said the royal couple’s presence in Quebec is designed to “offend and humiliate” separatists.
