Meghan Markle makes secret royal visits as she says Megxit goodbyes

Meghan Markle has been spotted making secret royal visits since landing back in the UK ahead of her and Prince Harry quitting the Royal Family.

The Duchess of Sussex was seen getting out of a car and meeting teachers as she visited Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham, east London this afternoon.

She donned a white shirt with a long, high-waisted skirt for the visit as Harry was at Silverstone to open the British motor racing museum alongside F1 star Lewis Hamilton.

Yesterday the duchess, 38, also travelled to the National Theatre on London’s South Bank in a solo visit to attend an "Immersive Storytelling Studio”.

She later joined husband Harry to attend the rain-soaked Endeavour Awards in the evening as the couple beamed in front of crowds and cameras.

Harry held an umbrella over him and Meghan as they stepped out at the glitzy awards ceremony as they started their final engagements as royals.

The couple will officially step down from their roles on March 31 and fly back to Canada to join their son Archie and settle into their new life in North America.

The awards last night – which celebrated the achievements of wounded servicemen and woman who have participated in sporting and adventure challenges – saw Meghan take to the stage in a dazzling blue dress as she told the audience: “It’s very nice to be back.”

During the event, Meghan chatted to Claire Spencer, 52, who was there to support her husband as he picked up an award.

Claire complimented the duchess on how she looks after having her little boy, prompting Meghan to give a little update on how the royal tot is getting on.

She said: "Oh yes, well he is ten months now and is into everything."

The couple also witnessed a surprise marriage proposal when Welsh Guards veteran Danny Holland, 29, from Wrexham, north Wales, popped the question to Lauren Price while on stage.

Meghan appeared emotional as she smiled and placed her hands in the centre of her chest, while Harry applauded the couple.

The couple were so touched by the moment – which saw Lauren say yes – they asked to speak to the newly engaged couple privately after the awards had finished.

Lauren said: "They just congratulated us. They asked us how we felt and if I was expecting it. They said they were really happy for us."
