Meghan Markle Reportedly Made 'Last‑Minute Flight' without Prince Harry & Baby Archie to Support Pal Serena Williams in the US Open Final
38-year-old Meghan Markle boarded a "last-minute flight" to America to support her friend, leaving Prince Harry, and infant, baby Archie back in the UK.
The American actress turned royal made her way back to her home country without the rest of her family. She flew to New York to cheer the tennis champ, Serena Williams who reportedly won her semifinal game.
The Duchess of Sussex decided to be present for the final and took a commercial flight with very minimal security. The mother of one left both her 4-month-old son, Archibald Mountbatten Windsor in the care of his father, Prince Harry. Neither of them was on the trip with the royal.
Meghan's days are numbered in New York as she intends to return after the weekend ends. This is not the first time she will be coming through as a supportive friend. In July she attended the Wimbledon finals, and also joined Kate Middleton in watching the women's final.
However, it happens to be the first time that Archie's mom will be traveling to America after her delivery. It is also the second time in the year that she will be visiting the USA. In February, Serena joined forces with the royal in organizing a baby shower with close-knit pals on the soils of her home country.
It appears Prince Harry's wife doesn't have a problem visiting the plains of the North American continent. However, sources reported that both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex declined an invitation to Balmoral.
According to royal experts, the couple's distance to the Queen is not much, and they see her often. It seems the former American actress has a thing for traveling across continents. She plans on visiting Africa, but this time around, with the whole pack!
Apart from cheering and visits, the Duchess is a creative woman who will begin her first royal duty next week. Meghan will be launching her women capsule collection with the help of her friend and designer, Misha Nonoo.
The clothing line was a finished work of various designers. The 38-year-old revealed that Marks and Spencers, John Lewis and Partners, among others were instrumental to her "Smart Work" project. She also shared intricacies of the project that is expected to curb the unemployment rate among women by advising on appropriate work clothes.
The mother of one explained that the proceeds recovered from the sales of products would go to charity.
"...For each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to the charity. Not only does this allow us to be part of each other's story, it reminds us we're in it together."
In August, the royal shared the progress of her project; how she directed the photoshoots and related to the models. She sure knows how to put a bit of fun in everything she does, whether it's to cheer a friend or fulfill a royal obligation!
