Prince Harry and Meghan Marklehave moved out of the Royal House to Canada last month after announcing that they will be stepping down as senior members of the royal family. But, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex seem to have a few more ‘Royal Engagements’ back in the U.K..
The Sunday Times reported that ‘Harry and Markle will participate in a final round of royal engagements before returning to Canada, and in addition, the couple and their son, Archie, will also reportedly attend the Commonwealth Service for Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey in London on March 9.’
A source told Entertainment Tonight that ‘the pair is expected to continue to attend family events such as Commonwealth Day and the annual Trooping the Colour when invited by Queen Elizabeth II’.
A source told the Times that ’the Queen is at ease about the idea of Markle and Harry’s permanent departure from their royal duties’.
“If that’s what they want, if they want to go, we must let them go,” is what the Queen was reported to have told ‘close friends’.
Since their announcement last month in January, the couple has been living in Canada in North Saanich on Vancouver Island.
Last week, the couple attended the JP Morgan Alternative Investment Summit in Miami, where they both spoke. According to the Times, ‘Harry spoke about losing his mother, Princess Diana, and his choice to step back from life as a senior royal, while Markle discussed her love for her husband’.
They were also seen having dinner with Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez.
According to The Sunday Times, “The couple are to bring Archie back to Britain for a final round of royal duties after enjoying a big payday,” referring to their recent appearance at the summit.
The report added, “The queen has asked Harry and Meghan to join the rest of the royal family for the Commonwealth service at Westminster Abbey on March 9. The couple is expected to arrive in the U.K. with Archie, who will be 10 months old, for a final round of official engagements before returning to their new base in Canada.”.
