Prince Harry was not the first prince to move to North America.

Prince Harry

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex (Henry Charles Albert David; born 15th September 1984), is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, and is sixth in the line of succession to the British throne.

On 18th January 2020, Buckingham Palace announced that following their decision to step back from royal duties, from 31th March 2020 Harry and his wife have agreed not to use their Royal Highness styles, although, as a British prince, he will retain his style and titles. Harry and his family subsequently moved to Canada, North America. However, he was not the only British prince to live in Canada.

Prince Edward

Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn (Edward Augustus; 2nd November 1767 – 23rd January 1820), was the fourth son and fifth child of King George III. His only child became Queen Victoria, one of the greatest monarchs in history. Edward was the first member of the royal family to live in North America for more than a short visit (1791–1800), serving as the Commander in Chief of British Forces. In 1794, he became the first prince to enter the United States, travelling to Boston on foot from Lower Canada after American independence. He is credited with the first use of the term “Canadian” on 27th June 1792 to refer to both French and English settlers in Upper and Lower Canada.

The Prince used the term “Canadian” in an effort to quell a riot between the two groups at a polling station in Charlesbourg, Lower Canada. Recently, he has been styled the “Father of the Canadian Crown” for his impact on the development of Canada. An island, Prince Edward Island, in Canada, was named after him.
