Exactly half of those polled by the non-profit Angus Reid Institute said they did not care either way if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved there for good, with a generous 39 percent seeming keen.

But only 5 percent believed taxpayers should help pay for whatever the family needed — with almost three-quarters (73 percent) adamant that the Sussexes should pay for everything themselves.

The responses varied across the country, with the family advised to keep away from Quebec. It was the least welcoming area, with17 percent “upset” if the Sussexes made Canada their home.
