- It has been speculated that Meghan, 37, will go to Trooping the Color next week
- The new mother is on maternity leave after the birth of Archie on 6 May

The Duchess of Sussex could take a break from maternity leave to go to Trooping the Color next week, reports suggest.
Meghan, 37, is currently taking royal duty off after the birth of her son Archie on May 6.
Various media, including Hey!, have suggested that the new mother could join her husband, Prince Harry, 34, and other prominent members of the royal family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, for the event marking the Queen's official birthday.
Meghan is currently on maternity leave after the birth of his son Archie on 6 May. However, reports show that she can still appear on Trooping the Color next week. Kate took a break from her maternity leave with Louis to attend last year's event, pictured
When she does that, Meghan follows the leadership of sister-in-law Kate, 36, who appeared during last year's ceremony despite the fact that he was on maternity leave with Louis.
The Duchess of Sussex carried out her last official appointments in March.
She joined senior royals for a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on March 11 and made a second appearance at Canada House that day.
A week later, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the New Zealand House in London to sign a book of condolence and to show their respect after the terrorist attacks in Christchurch.

While Meghan was subsequently spotted during a private outing in Notting Hill, her next official appearance was when she and Harry Archie introduced the world to Windsor Castle two days after his birth on May 8.
Trooping the Color, which is Her Majesty's official birthday, falls on Saturday, June 8 this year, when Archie will be almost five weeks old.
The celebration is attended by members of the royal family, who traditionally view an RAF fly-pass from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
The Duchess of Cambridge was first seen just three weeks after the birth of Prince Louis last year when she attended the royal wedding on May 15.

Kate made a handful of other appearances while technically still on maternity leave, including Trooping the Color in June, Prince Louis & Baptism in July and the RAF Centenary celebrations that same month.
She officially returned to public duties at the beginning of October, when Prince Louis was five months old.
Kensington Palace has never confirmed the duration of the maternity leave of the Duchess of Sussex.
However, it is thought that she will return full-duty in the fall. It has previously been speculated that her first official performance will be the annual summit for One Young World in October.
Kensington Palace has been approached for comment.
