It’s been a turbulent few days for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Shortly after they returned home to the UK, they announced their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal Family.

The news stunned many but others felt it was the right decision for the couple, especially as Meghan has been mistreated and bullied by the UK tabloids for months on end. 

The mum has since returned to Canada to be with her baby boy Archie. The parents decided to leave him with close friend Jessica Mulroney and a nanny.

According to BAZAAR.com’s Omid Scobie, Meghan flew to Canada yesterday evening. Prince Harry is expected to fly back shortly.

A source told the publication: “They’re feeling confident. Harry and Meghan are aware that they’ll be criticized, perhaps even vilified, for taking control of their lives but creating a positive future for themselves and their family has always been their priority.”

Prince Harry has always stressed that he wants his family to have a normal life. Since losing his mum at the mere age of 12, Harry is well aware of the impact the media can have on someone’s life so this is this decision was undoubtedly made with his family’s best interest at heart.

The Sussexes may be stepping back as senior members, but they vowed to split their time between the UK and North America.

“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity,” they said in a statement.

Christmas is getting closer and we’re a little bit too excited about it. We’re more than ready to spend quality time with our nearest and dearest, eat nothing but turkey sandwiches and selection boxes and watch Love Actually every other day.

Most of our plans for the holiday season revolve around spending time in our pyjamas but we’ll obviously be spending time with the family too, just like The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The couple will be celebrating their first Christmas as parents and they’ve got some major plans in the diary for December.

Apparently, Harry and Meghan are planning on stepping away from their royal duties for a few weeks so they can visit Meghan’s mum in America.

It is believed the parents will fly out to the USA for Thanksgiving and plan on extending their break until after Christmas.

They have paused their royal duties for six weeks so they certainly will have plenty of time to enjoy Meghan’s homeland.

The royals tend to gather at Sandringham for Christmas, but reports claim Harry and Meghan may decline this year’s invitation.

Prince Harry has spent every Christmas with his grandmother and family, apart from 2012 as he was in Afghanistan.

The Sun claims that the couple wants to ‘recharge their batteries’ after a turbulent few months.

“They need some time away to recharge and decide their plans for next year,” a source told the publication.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to spend Christmas in Sandringham with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall and their extended family.

Yesterday, the eyes and ears of the world were firmly rested on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and their new baby.

The couple debuted the first photos of their newborn, and shared the name at St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle.

Little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is clearly adored by his royal parents, and Meghan chose to wear a very special trench dress by rising biracial menswear designer Grace Wales Bonner for the occasion.

According to Richard Palmer, the dress is intended to show unity between the two families. The royal reporter described the momentous event as, "A day for the couple to introduce their son to the family as well as the waiting world."

"It’s also my personal opinion that this was a good day for Buckingham Palace after the shambles of day one which exasperated British and overseas media trying to cover the story."

Archie is the first baby of mixed race in the senior ranks of the royal family since the 18th century, and the style of his mother reflected this wonderful merging of two loving families of two nations.

Meghan always embodies symbolism within her fashion choices, and she has chosen to send a vitally important message about representation while showing her first born to the world.

The pair managed to step in front of the cameras just 48 hours after welcoming a new baby to the world, but Harry and Meghan managed it with glowing smiles. Meghan's sleeveless, double-breasted trench dress was immediately noticed.

British designer Grace Wales Bonner runs her own namesake brand, Wales Bonner, and has won prestigious awards for her menswear collections. She was raised in Southeast London and has a Jamaican father and English mother. 

It speaks volumes that Markle chose a biracial designer for one of the biggest moments of her life.

Meghan paired the beautiful dress with Manolo Blahnik BB suede pumps, and a gold and turquoise necklace by Jennifer Meyer. Her diamond stud earrings completed the look.

Markle has previously expressed a passion for representing her own racial background, and has been open about her struggles as a mixed race woman;

"While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that."

Bonner has also expressed her emotions about her identity struggles, telling The Guardian in 2017:

“At school, I had some pressure to prove my blackness. It takes you a while to work out being ‘this’ doesn’t mean that you have to be ‘that.’”

The designer continued, "I have to be between places, because that’s a creative space for me. I guess that is the foundation of what I am doing, a meeting point and collision of cultures."

Bonner is only in her late twenties but recently won the coveted FC/Vogue Fashion Fund, which awards a £200,000 prize to a rising talent.

Grace is renowned for her menswear designs, but is known as one of the UK's most celebrated young designers. She was also awarded the revered 'LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers' in 2016, and graduated from the esteemed fashion school Central Saint Martins.

Each fashion choice Meghan makes is surveyed by the masses, and there's no doubt that she is aware of the ripple effect of her style. The Duchess is reflecting the diversity which the British royals must now embrace.

Grace welcomes gender fluidity in her stunning collections, as she told GentleWoman: "I love it when a boy puts on one of the embroidered jackets that the women wore and doesn't know the difference- my work is about being open to interpretation."

Bonner references black culture consistently in her work and draws inspiration from Nigerian writer Ben Okri and artist James Hampton.

We have seen the tuxedo/trench style on the Duchess on the tour of New Zealand in 2018 with Prince Harry, where she sported a navy blue tuxedo-style dress by Kiwi designer Maggie Marilyn.

In another fashion moment, Meghan wore an iconic striped tuxedo dress design by Altuzarra in as she attended a reception for the Commonwealth Youth Forum last year.

Archie marks a new age for the monarchy, with Meghan bringing positivity and genuine compassion to the royal family. The baby is the first biracial British-American royal, and is seventh in line to the throne.

Keep up with her apparel selections, and you'll be in for a symbolic treat each time she debuts a new outfit.

The historic image of the six members of the British monarchy gazing fondly at Archie has been shared across the world on social media, and offers a hopeful message for diversity in the UK.
