The Duchess of Sussex has returned to Canada to be with her eight-month-old son Archie as the Royal Family look for a “workable solution” over the future roles of Harry and Meghan.
It comes after the couple announced they will step back as senior royals. Harry and Meghan had resumed their royal duties in London on Tuesday after enjoying a six-week Christmas break in Canada.
A spokeswoman has confirmed the duchess has now returned to the country to be with Archie, who is said to have stayed there with a nanny. The Royal Family were said to be “hurt” by Harry and Meghan’s decision to issue a personal statement outlining their future lives as financially independent royals who will divide their time between the UK and North America.
A Buckingham Palace source said: “The Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge have directed their teams to work together at pace with government and The Sussex Household to find workable solutions.”
It has emerged that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly ignored instructions from the Queen not to go public with their announcement. The Royal Family is expected to talk to multiple governments over the decision. On their new Sussex Royal website, the couple say they are planning to “value the ability to earn a professional income” – something they are not currently allowed to do.
