  • Duchess Meghan Markle has been spotted out in Canada. The Duchess headed back to Canada last week after the Sussexes announced their shocking news.

    Duchess Meghan has been spotted out in Canada after heading back there last week following her and Prince Harry’s shock announcement.

    Just a week ago, the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry announced that they would be taking a ‘step back’ as senior members of the Royal Family.

    Following their shock statement, where they revealed that they plan to ‘balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages,’ Duchess Meghan headed back to Canada to join the couple’s baby son Archie, while Prince Harry remained here in the UK to discuss with the rest of the royals how the family plan to move forward.

    “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
