London: Britain's Prince Harry and wife Meghan have settled, for now, into a seaside home near the most royal of Canadian cities -- Victoria, British Columbia -- named after a queen who reigned until 1901, during a great expansion of the British Empire.

"Victoria is probably more British than (the) British," said resident Bill Bray.

Indeed, thousands of British pensioners have chosen to retire on Vancouver Island, part of the province of BC, which has a milder climate than the rest of Canada.

Prince Harry, 35, arrived on Monday, just a few days after reaching an arrangement with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth and other senior royals that will see him and Meghan, 38, quit their royal roles to seek an independent future.
