Meghan 'to mirror Kate and return to full-time royal duties in the autumn'

Making the most of her time with baby Archie

Fresh from her appearance at Trooping The Colour, it has been reported that new mum Meghan won't return to her royal duties full-time until the autumn.

However, in a move that will see her follow in the footsteps of her sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan will carry out a "few engagements" over the coming months, just as Kate did last summer following the birth of Prince Louis in April.

Some had speculated that Meghan's appearance at the Trooping The Colour ceremony at the weekend marked her return to public duties.

The source said: "It was important to her to be at Trooping out of respect to the Queen."

You'll probably see her at a few engagements but she won't be back to work properly until later in the year.

They added: "She's mirroring what the Duchess of Cambridge did on her maternity leave. You'll probably see her at a few engagements but she won't be back to work properly until later in the year."

Ent Daily has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.

Meghan gave birth to her first son, Archie Harrison, on May 6.
