Meghan Markle and Prince Harry cannot live in North America, one of Canada's leading newspapers has said.

The couple, who shocked the world last week after announcing their intention to step back from their royal roles, was hoping to move part-time to Canada while remaining in the House of Windsor, but The Globe and Mail is saying no.

"You are welcome to visit, but so long as you are senior royals, Canada cannot allow you to come to stay," the editorial piece published Monday stated.

If Harry and Meghan were to relocate while remaining part of the Royal Family, they would be violating laws that separated Canada from the British monarchy that once governed the country.

"A royal living in this country does not accord with the long-standing nature of the relationship between Canada and Britain, and Canada and the Crown," the article read.

The Globe and Mail further pointed to Canada never having a class system "with hereditary aristocrats like Britain."

Harry and Meghan relocating to Canada goes against these principles, as well as stipulations of the Statute of Westminster of 1931, which defined Canada's relationship to Britain "as one of equal, independent nations."

The newspaper further noted "that the Sussexes were working out their own personal issues," to which Canadians "wish them the best of luck."

The Globe and Mail added that Canada "welcomes people of all faiths, nationalities and races" but cannot become the home of a senior member of the Royal Family.

"The government should make that clear. There can be no Earl Sussex of Rosedale and no Prince Harry of Point Grey," the article continued. "Canada is not a halfway house for anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal."
