Prince Harry, 35, is believed to have carried out his last public engagement on Sunday evening, attending the OnSide Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London, where he championed the achievements of young people, who have made a difference – including activist Greta Thunberg. The last time Meghan was seen in public was during the Remembrance Sunday service with the rest of the royal family. The Duchess, 38, watched the ceremony from the balcony of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, alongside the Countess of Wessex and Sir Timothy Laurence. It’s understood that the royal couple will take their six-month-old son Archie to the US to visit Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland during their break. There is also a chance that the family will remain there until over the festive period, as it was confirmed last week that the Sussexes will not be joining the Queen at Sandringham for Christmas this year. Last year, the Sussexes and Cambridges walked to church together in Sandringham on Christmas Day, when Meghan was pregnant with Archie. The former actress also joined the royal family for the first time in 2017, shortly after she announced her engagement to Prince Harry in November. The couple married at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in May 2018.
