Meghan Markle will hold “private and patronage-related meetings” when she returns to the UK next month, source claims
- Hertogin van Sussex is ‘expected to perform her own series of private assignments’
- She will be in the UK next month for three public events alongside Prince Harry
- But it has been suggested that Meghan could fill her free time with “secret” visits
Meghan Markle “will hold private and patronage-related meetings” when she returns to the UK next month, a source has told BAZAAR.com.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, will join her husband Prince Harry, 35, in Great Britain next month for three public events before the couple officially retire from royal duties.
A separate route was revealed last week for the trip, but it has been suggested that former actress Meghan could fill her remaining time with “secret” engagements.
She has regularly made private visits to her patronages in the past and often shares photos of the trips to her Instagram page at a later date.

The source said, “Meghan will hold some private and patronage-related meetings during her stay in London.”
It comes as the Telegraph reported that the duchess “is expected to carry out her own series of private assignments.”
Some fans hoped she would appear at the first British Vogue Forces For Change event with Salma Hayek on March 7, inspired by the release of the magazine she had published last year.
However, sources told the Telegraph that she would not be present, and noted that she is scheduled to attend the Mountbatten Festival that day with her husband.

The Duchess will participate in the Duke of Sussex at Endeavor Fund Awards and the Mountbatten Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall two days later on March 5.
Their official official engagement is expected to be on March 9 when they join the Queen at Westminster Abbey to mark Commonwealth Day.
Before officially resigning on March 31, Harry will also attend a recording session with American rock star Jon Bon Jovi and the choir of Invictus Games, who re-record his song Unbroken to promote this year’s tournament.
