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.

And now the Duchess has been spotted out for the first time since headed back over to Canada.

Revealing that she was in Canadian city Vancouver, Duchess Meghan made a surprise visit to a women’s charity.

The Duchess visited the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, an organisation that provides basic needs and positive change for women and children in the area.


Posting on their Facebook page, the centre shares a snap of Duchess Meghan with a group of women from the organisation, writing, 'Look who we had tea with today! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues affecting women in the community. 💜'.

Fans have been loving the adorable post, praising the Duchess for ‘dressing like everyone else’ and ‘caring about women all over the world’.

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
