Meghan Markle has reportedly landed in Toronto as she makes her first solo trip since marrying Prince Harry in May.

The Duchess, 37, is thought to be making the trip across the Atlantic to visit friends and family.

Royal Central report the Duchess caught a flight with Air Canada on Sunday, who were under strict instructions from the palace.

Kensington Palace reportedly sent a letter to the airline staff beforehand asking that no one take the Duchess’s picture or approach her on the flight.

During her visit, Meghan is thought to be spending a few days visiting close friend Jessica Mulroney and her family, before heading to LA to spend some time with her mother, Doria Ragland.

It’s thought Meghan is also visiting her father, Thomas Markle, amid the ongoing dramas including his outbursts in the press. Most recently, Mr Markle told The Sun that the royal family were like a ‘cult’, likening them to Scientologists.

It may come as a surprise that the royal is travelling commercially, but this is all down to protocol. Royals are strictly banned from travelling on private jets unless on official business.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been known to fly commercially: Kate boarded a British Airways flight from Rotterdam to London in 2016, while William was spotted on a Ryanair flight to Glasgow the year before.

When Meghan returns from her Stateside trip, it’s thought she will spend some time in Balmoral, Scotland, to visit the Queen’s holiday home with Prince Harry.

If rumours of Meghan’s US trip are true or not, the royal is already set to have a busy year of overseas travel.

Meghan, along with her husband Prince Harry, are due to visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and the Kingdom of Tonga in October for an official visit.
