Archie will stay in Canada during Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's return to the UK: report

By Zach Harper

While Duchess Meghan is set to rejoin Prince Harry in the UK this week as the couple get ready to carry out their final engagements as senior royals, a new report says Archie won't be coming along.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's son will be staying in Canada while his parents are across the pond this week, according to the Sunday Times.

Meghan, Harry and Archie spent six weeks in Canada at the end of 2019, where they stayed in a home on Vancouver Island near North Saanich. We last saw little Archie on New Year's Eve, when the couple took to Instagram to post a heartwarming photo of Harry holding his son on what looked like a gorgeous British Columbia coastline.

When the Sussexes returned to the UK in January and announced their intentions to step down from their senior royal roles, their then-eight-month-old little boy was also said to have remained in Canada, where he reportedly stayed with his nanny. The duke and duchess returned to our country following their announcement, and have spent most of their time here since – with the exception of visits to Miami and California to participate in a JPMorgan event and what was reportedly a brainstorming session at Stanford University last month.

Harry returned to the UK and stepped out for two solo engagements last week. We first saw him at a summit for his Travalyst initiative in Edinburgh, Scotland on Feb. 26, where he asked to be introduced as "just Harry." He followed that up by visiting London's Abbey Road Studios with Jon Bon Jovi two days later. The rock star and duke re-recorded Jon's "Unbroken" with the Invictus Games Choir, which will benefit the Invictus Games Foundation.

We'll see Harry and Meghan later this week when they attend the Endeavour Fund Awards on March 5. They'll also step out to the Mountbatten Music Festival at Royal Albert Hall two days later. Meghan is expected to mark International Women's Day in some way on March 8, though it's not known how yet.

The final engagement on the couple's calendar so far will be Commonwealth Day services with the Queen, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince William and Duchess Kate on March 9.
