The Queen‘s aides were today finalising the details of the Megxit deal with an announcement ‘imminent’ on the future of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after the couple announced they would quit royal life.
Buckingham Palace is expected to release a statement on the couple ‘imminently’ on the terms of the couple’s arrangement after Her Majesty ordered her courtiers to come up with a plan ‘in days, not weeks’.
It is understood officials are yet to iron out several key issues, including the Sussexes’ security, titles and future finances.
The Standard quoted senior palace officials who are understood to have been working to resolve the crisis ‘at pace’.
It came as the Meghan took full advantage of her newfound independence from the Crown as she drove herself to a Canadian airport to pick up a pilates expert pal who jetted in from the US for the weekend.
The Duchess of Sussex was spotted in photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com parked outside Victoria International Airport in a Land Rover Discovery on Thursday afternoon.
She appeared to be in high spirits as she chatted with a male companion in the front seat, believed to be personal security, for about 10 minutes until her friend Heather Dorak arrived.
Ms Dorak, who hails from San Antonio, Texas, but lives in California, became Meghan’s pilates guru and attended the royal wedding in May 2018 with her husband Matt Cohen.
She runs the Pilates Platinum brand, which the Duchess started attending in Los Angeles when she starred in Suits.
The friends were also both pregnant at the same time in late 2018, but their children were not with them at arrivals yesterday afternoon.
5,000 miles away in London her husband Harry made his first public appearance since the Megxit bombshell – and potentially his last engagement as a frontline royal – at the draw for the Rugby League World Cup at Buckingham Palace yesterday.
And Harry and Meghan’s staff at Frogmore Cottage are reportedly being ‘let go’, in the surest sign yet the couple will settle permanently in Canada with the Duchess strongly rumoured never to return.
