AceShowbiz - Royal fans may be able to see Meghan Markle when the Trooping the Colour takes place on Saturday, June 8. CNN has reported that the Duchess of Sussex is expected to make her first public appearance since the birth of her first child with Prince Harry, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, at the annual ceremony.
However, it doesn't mean that the event will mark the end of Meghan's maternity leave. According to a source from the palace, this is a separate affair from her official duties of participating in a formal state visit. The source adds that the ceremony is a family event where many members of the royal family will be in attendance. Meghan will not bring baby Archie to the event, though.
Should this report be true, the former actress will follow in sister-in-law Kate Middleton's footsteps. Last year, the Duchess of Cambridge attended Trooping the Colour while she was still on maternity leave after giving birth to her third child, Prince Louis.
Meghan and Harry welcomed Archie on May 6. The married couple first introduced the newborn, who is seventh in line to the throne, through a photo call prior to meeting the Queen and Prince Philip. "It's magic, it's pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy," Meghan gushed to the media, before adding that her son "had the sweetest temperament, he's really calm. It's been a special couple of days."
It's said that the both Meghan and Harry have been "nesting" and enjoying their time as parents. The two have also settled into a routine with their newborn because the Duke of Sussex wants to be as "involved as possible," according to a royal source. Even though it's exhausting, he enjoys "every minute" of it.
The source also reveals that the couple has been visited by close friends and family who want to wish them well and shower them with gifts. "Several family members have brought books and cuddly toys like stuffed animals," the source shares.
