The Duchess of Sussex has fled the country and gone back to Canada, leaving Prince Harry to deal with the fallout of the family crisis.
According to the Daily Mail, Meghan returned to Canada, where their eight-month-old son, Archie, had been left with his nanny. And it doesn’t look like she plans on coming back any time soon.
The remarkable development – described by one royal insider as ‘simply astonishing’ – came as the Queen last night ordered her warring family to hammer out a solution that will allow her grandson and his wife to quit frontline royal duties.
On a day of drama, the monarch convened an extraordinary series of calls between herself, the Prince of Wales, Prince William and Harry.
She told them to come up with a ‘workable solution’ to the crisis within days, and tasked aides with presenting a series of options to put to the unhappy couple.
