It looks like Meghan Markle is planning a homecoming this trip summer. That’s because there are new reports that suggest the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking to visit New York City in the coming weeks. They also want to bring along their almost one-month-old baby Archie Harrison for the trip. Meghan gave birth to the little tot back on May 6.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth - a family of 53 countries working together to promote democracy, protect human rights, regenerate the environment, and focus not on what makes us different - but rather what we have in ‘common.’ What unites us versus what divides us. Representing nearly one third of the world’s population, 60% of whom are under the age of 30, the Commonwealth also serves as a champion for youth empowerment, which is a key focus of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Her Majesty The Queen serves as patron of the @queens_commonwealth_trust, which Their Royal Highnesses proudly serve as President and Vice-President of. The Duke is also Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Through The Duke and Duchess’ Commonwealth travels, they have worked with and supported young leaders on mobilizing youth engagement, and working towards a more unified future that spearheads progress, sustainability, optimism, and taking action. With that said, Mozambique, a member state of the Commonwealth, is currently enduring Cyclone Kenneth, the most destructive natural disaster the northern coast has ever experienced. On the heels of Cyclone Idai (where over 1000 people lost their lives) this cyclone will leave the people of Mozambique victim to catastrophic flooding, food insecurity, displacement, and obliteration of their homes and villages.

According to Cosmopolitan, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a very busy summer schedule ahead of them. Even though nothing has been confirmed by Buckingham Palace yet, reports indicate that the Sussexes plan on visiting Los Angeles to see grandma Doria Ragland in the coming weeks. There’s also talk that they are looking to visit Africa and now another report suggests that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also want to visit New York City. And yes, they plan on bringing Archie Harrison along for all of their travels.
Even though Meghan doesn’t have any family in New York City, she does have a lot of friends in the Big Apple. Many royal fans also remember that she had her star-studded baby shower there back in March. Because Meghan is looking to visit relatives in California, insiders say that it would only make sense for them to visit New York City too, since they will already be on this side of the pond.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
An additional source also says that the trip will happen, but only when Harry and Meghan feel comfortable enough to bring little Archie with them on his first plane ride. As far as their planned trip to Africa, insiders say that officials in South Africa have been told to expect a visit by Prince Harry, Meghan, and their baby sometime later this year. Apparently, early preparations have already begun.
So far the Duke and Duchess of Sussex themselves have not made any comments about their travel plans. However, seeing how they are huge travelers themselves, there’s a very good chance that they will be making plenty of trips with Archie in the future. For now, it looks like Meghan Markle is enjoying as much quiet time as she can get at home in Frogmore Cottage with Baby Archie. The Duchess is expected to end her maternity leave sometime later this summer.
