Meghan Markle breaks cover for the first time since leaving the UK

Meghan Markle broke cover for the first time on Tuesday leaving the palatial $14million Canadian home where she has been holed up since Friday.

The Duchess of Sussex sped 22 miles from the Vancouver Island oceanside mansion to Victoria Harbour Airport where she boarded a seaplane for the mainland.

Eight-month-old son Archie was nowhere to be seen and Meghan, accompanied by members of her security detail, did not appear to take luggage with her as she flew to Vancouver.

Meghan pulled a fur-lined hood over her head and wore knee-high brown boots to protect herself from snow flurries as she boarded the plane. 

It is the first time she has been positively spotted since she flew back to British Columbia last week, although there have been unconfirmed reports of her driving into the nearby town of Sidney by the Sea and going to Victoria International Airport.

Meghan Markle was spotted Tuesday leaving the $14million Vancouver Island home where she and Prince Harry stayed over the holidays with Archie. She has been staying in the mansion since Friday, but Archie was nowhere to be seen Tuesday

She made her move as the Canadian Navy moored a vessel just a quarter mile out to sea off Mille Fleurs, the home she has been staying in since she hurriedly left London.

The coastal defense vessel Brandon moved into place in Patricia Bay on Monday.

'Sometimes during sea trials they moor to conduct exercises on board, either on or around the ship,' Dubeau told DailyMail.com.
