Sussex, N.B., enjoying spotlight over humorous suggestions Harry and Meghan coming to town

The town of Sussex, N.B., is enjoying the spotlight after tongue-in-cheek suggestions that it would be the logical landing spot for the planned move to Canada by Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

Sussex Mayor Marc Thorne says people in the community are having fun with the attention and appreciate any opportunity to boast about what the community has to offer.

“We realize the likelihood of them living in Sussex is probably next to none, but it’s a fun thing to play with and talk about and have a little bit of fun,” Thorne said Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently announced they will step down from their royal duties and split their time between Canada and the U.K.

The satirical online publication The Manatee and CBC’s “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” both did stories this week proposing the New Brunswick town – known as the dairy capital of the Maritimes – as the place for the royals to move.

Thorne said the topic has been all the talk at local coffee shops.

“The response has been great. I’ve had lots of texts and emails,” he said. “It has been very well received.”
