Meghan Markle has been laying low — driving herself around Vancouver Island in Canada in a Range Rover to do errands — as Megxit plays out, according to reports.
While her husband, Prince Harry, continues to grapple with fallout from the pair’s controversial move to rid themselves of their “senior royal duties,” Meghan “mostly stays at home but ventures out around mid-day just to get out,” a source told E! News.
A security detail follows her around, the site said.
The weather has been “cold and rainy” in the town where Meghan has been mainly holed up in a wealthy pal’s mansion along with baby boy Archie since she and Harry stunned the Palace and world last week with their announcement to severely curb their life in the royal spotlight, the source said.
When the Duchess of Sussex does leave her secluded current digs, “She has gone for a drive around town and to pick up someone at the airport that looked like her mom,” the source said.
This past weekend, before Monday’s historic Megxit summit involving Harry, the queen, Prince William and Prince Charles, Meghan was spotted tooling around the area running errands, ending up at one point in “a drug-store parking lot,” a source added to US magazine.
Harry is reportedly set to reunite with his wife and son in Canada at the end of the week.
He and Meghan have been ripped for blindsiding the queen and the rest of the royal family with their announcement, which was posted online last Wednesday. But the couple only made the move because Britain’s The Sun was set to publish a front-page story about their plan, a source told US.
Still, Harry is contrite over making his relatives, especially his grandmother the queen, upset by not breaking the news to them first, a source told Britain’s Telegraph.
“I don’t think he fully appreciated the impact the statement would have in terms of them not consulting the queen,” the insider said. “He regrets that.”
