Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, stepped away from royal duties at the end of March and have since settled in Los Angeles with their son Archie Harrison. While the couple are no longer working members of the Firm they are still treasured members of the Royal Family and were due to attend a special reunion on Friday.

Meghan and Harry were meant to be guests at Princess Beatrice’s royal wedding on May 29 but the event has been called off due to coronavirus.

While the royal nuptials were expected to bring together key family members for the first time since Megxit they have been postponed for the foreseeable future.

Meghan and Harry have set up a base in the US and are spending lockdown in Meghan’s hometown Los Angeles.

The couple made clear their intentions to be part-based in North America when they first announced their plans to step down as senior royals.

While Meghan and Harry are no longer working royals they will continue to honour their ties to UK charities and were expected to return to Britain on a fairly regular basis.

A key sign the couple didn’t plan to abandon Britain was their decision to keep their Windsor home Frogmore Cottage.

They also agreed to pay back the £2.4 million taxpayers money they spent on doing the royal residence up.

Princess Beatrice’s wedding would have brought Meghan and Harry face to face with the Queen, Prince Philip, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William for the first time in months.

As for rescheduling the royal wedding Princess Beatrice and Edoardo are taking their time.

A source close to the couple told People in April: “There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding.

“They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time.

“There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet.”

The coronavirus pandemic has put Meghan and Harry’s international travel plans on ice for now.

They recently shared a sweet video of their son Archie Harrison to mark his first birthday on May 6.

The young family were expected to join the Queen, 94 and Prince Philip, 98, at Balmoral this summer but the holiday has also been called off.

Both the Queen and Prince Philip are in their 90s and currently isolating at Windsor Castle.

While the Duke is usually based at Wood Farm on the Sandringham Estate his was helicoptered down from Norfolk to be with the Queen ahead of lockdown in March.

The Queen and the Duke’s age put them particularly at risk of coronavirus and it is unclear when they will both be out in public again.

The Queen’s packed schedule of public engagements has been written off for now as she continues with royal duties from within Windsor Castle.

The Queen is said to be most at home at Balmoral during her summer breaks and will be sad not to see her great-grandson Archie on this occasion.

The Duke and the Queen have seen little of Meghan and Harry’s son since his birth on May 6, 2019.
