Video from Sky News shows Harry landing at Victoria's airport late Monday.

The prince, his wife Meghan and their eight-month-old son Archie are reportedly staying at a mansion north of the B.C. capital.

Buckingham Palace announced Saturday that the prince and his wife, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will give up public funding and try to become financially independent.
