Ahead of her first royal tour with husband Prince Harry, which will see the couple visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and the Kingdom of Tonga, Meghan Markle has hopped on a flight back to Toronto. Prior to moving to the United Kingdom to be with her husband, Meghan was, of course, based in Toronto, where she filmed all seven seasons of Suits.

The Mirror is reporting that Meghan flew via Air Canada to Toronto, and that the airline was asked to protect the Duchess' privacy during her flight. The publication cites royal news hub, Royal Central, as their source for the information regarding Meghan's flight, with it being alleged that Kensington Palace gave Air Canada strict instructions in a letter about her itinerary, apparently "requesting that no one takes Meghan’s picture or approaches her on the flight."

This is Meghan's first solo trip abroad since she became the Duchess of Sussex. It's likely that the royal is savoring some time with the close friends she made in the city when she lived there, prior to a busy few months of official engagements alongside Prince Harry.

Meghan's trip to Canada comes just as her father, Thomas Markle, continues his tirade against his daughter and the royal family. According to The Telegraph, his latest interview with The Sun saw him make a whole host of accusations against Meghan and her husband's relatives. Thomas described them as "either like Scientologists or the Stepford family," as well as branding them "cult-like" and "secretive."
