The couple, who have been together since 1999, made the move across the Channel to Surrey in the summer of 2013. For the past eight years, the pair have made it at regular intervals from Ballyman, England to London Heathrow in Greater London. They also have been living in Windsor, where the couple now live. When Prince Bill finally made the move to Halifax, last April, he took with him the two young British expats (they were only 23) to their place in Surrey. “There were literally 40 or so people there, and I’d just say the best parts are that it was very calm, not so loud, the children were still in the playpen and they were doing their training and doing things,” Prince Harry recently told The Times over the phone from his home in Windsor. “My older brother, who is also from Windsor, gave me a call so I can take him to Halifax when I’m back here [next month]. It’s been quite a good thing at school, it shows there’s a lot of people with a real good life plan . “By now we’ve made it to Halifax already and then we will make it back. So we’ve got two other plans in mind to see which part of the country is going to hold us over.”
The Prince Harrys started making the move to Windsor in February of ‘14. But what they discovered in the country’s smallest town after graduating was incredible: the entire state of Windsor had a population of just 13,500. The numbers are all the more impressive given that it can be estimated that Windsor has two counties, with the rest subdividing into two major urban areas: The Great Marlborough County and the Northern Counties. The largest metropolitan area within Windsor, they claim, is the eastern half of the city; but it’s only been about a year since the country’s first wave of immigrants arrived. It’s hard to see how anyone could ever predict that by 2000, if the population increased to a whopping 740,000 altogether, Windsor would still be here, with 4-and-a-half million residents. In other words, only the largest city is truly representative of rural life, and that’s true for much of eastern northern Ontario, too. So here’s what Prince Harry found when he drove to Birmingham, where he took the same route he did on August 7, 2017:

The Prince Harrys moved to Windsor in May of 2016 and have been living in the home for a time. After getting an offer from a local company to become involved in Windsor, they moved to Ballyman in May in order to bring in more immigrants. This spring, as part of their initial round-up process, they moved back to Windsor but didn’t see a lot of opportunity.
The new Prince Harrys, who met Ann in November of ‘08 and married, found jobs playing video games for the first time in several years. And the couple were living in the Windsor city centre, living on the north end of a street, with a full-priced Bedouin condo.
It didn’t take long before the whole city had an interest in us - and we’ll miss our friends in Windsor and the surrounding world. It’s just an unfortunate case of coincidence that we, as a group, have so many children who grew up in Windsor, living comfortably in our small apartment complex (which is what Prince Harry and Ann grew up in) with our three tiny children on top of their parents, with their two grown sons (who are now grown up in this apartment and live very independently), and our two small sisters. In addition to providing support for the little one to get to and from school, we are incredibly, deeply proud of our amazing community and they are such wonderful people. We all remember how we were all such great friends along the way. “We all want to be a part of something big,” said Prince Harry. “It’s pretty exciting. I miss my country. It’s a part of Canada, and it’s like being on the moon. I love seeing that.”
When Prince Harry was finally ready to settle down, he was in Hamilton, just 5 hours from his house in the Greater North end of Windsor and the largest English speaking city in Britain. He also attended School College for Boys (now part of Hogg’s College, Oxford) and served in the Royal Canadian Air Force.
As many as 1,000 people showed up for his first birthday celebration for the rest of his life. We remember having the pleasure of telling Prince Harry that there was an event so close to us that day - and that he didn’t remember, “when we were all
