Harry, who is still sixth in line to the throne, flew to Vancouver last night and has been reunited with eight-month-old Archie after more than two weeks apart and looked happy and excited to be in Canada.

The prince was spotted landing in the country on British Airways flight 85 from London’s Heathrow and he left the Boeing 747 by the back staircase.  

At the end of the near-10-hour Boeing 747 flight he was whisked away in a black minivan to continue his journey with a short 25-minute hop over to Victoria on Vancouver Island.

Queen's senior advisor says it would be 'unsatisfactory' if Harry and Meghan continue to use 'Sussex Royal' brand  

The Queen's most senior advisor on ceremonial matters has said it would not be 'satisfactory' for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to continue to use the Sussex Royal name after stepping down from senior royal duties.

Thomas Woodcock, Garter Principal King of Arms, is a member of the royal household and his job is ensuring that royal symbols are not wrongly used commercially.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex successfully negotiated their withdrawal from the royal family earlier this week, and it has already been announced the couple will not use their HRH titles.

But the couple already have an Instagram feed called Sussexroyal and a website of the same name. And questions linger over whether they should be able to use the brand, as they have stepped down from royal duties.

Mr Woodcock told The Times: 'I don't think it's satisfactory. One cannot be two things at once. You either are [royal] or you're not.'

The principal advisor to the Queen on heraldry and ceremonial matters is currently being consulted on the plans, but the final call will be made by Her Majesty. 

He added: 'It is such unusual times that it is a matter of waiting and seeing how things develop.'

The Duchess was visibly enjoying walking in picturesque Horth Hill Park during her stay on Vancouver Island. She and Harry took a hike there on New Year's Day, before he flew back to London to sort out the details of their split from the Royal Family.

Kantorowicz, who lives some 15 miles away in Victoria, British Columbia, said Meghan handed her phone back and wished her a Happy New Year and the two couples went on their way. Harry and Meghan were with their dogs and her Suits co-star Abigail Spencer.

Harry and Meghan now have to decide in which part of Canada they are to make their future. It is understood he would like to stay on the west coast around Vancouver while she would prefer Toronto where she lived while she was filming Suits.        

The couple would have been expected to attend the Buckingham Palace bash but William and Kate were joined by the Earl and Countess of Wessex and Princess Anne, in what has been described as the ‘new royal order’ – those who will support the Queen from now on.

‘Someone show Meghan how to use a baby carrier before Archie drops out', Twitter users urge

Social media users have urged Meghan Markle to get advice from the nanny on how to use a baby carrier after pictures showed her awkwardly handling Archie while walking with her two dogs yesterday.

The Duchess of Sussex looked in good spirits as she strolled through the woods just a couple of miles from the oceanfront home on Canada's Vancouver Island where she has spent most of the past two months. 

Smiling to herself, there was no sign of the drama of Megxit on her face as she took Archie out for some fresh air with Guy the beagle and the black Labrador she shares with Prince Harry.

However some eagle-eyed Twitter users were distracted by baby Archie and claimed the eight-month-old looked a little uncomfortable against his mother's chest in a sporty $180 (£154) Ergo 360 Omni Baby Carrier.  

Some went so far as to say she was using the baby carrier incorrectly and said she looked like she might need 'help' 

One user said: 'Archie looks uncomfortable - maybe one of Meghan's armed guards could give her a hand with the pup...just say'in. 

Twitter user Tina Richards said: 'Please someone show Meghan how a baby carrier is used correctly before poor little Archie drops out.'

It is another stepping stone for William in the long preparation for him becoming king.  The Queen and Prince Charles were not in attendance at the reception to mark the UK-Africa Investment Summit and Prince Harry was in the air and on his way to Vancouver, in order not to overshadow his brother's big night.

Royal aides are concerned the couple’s desire to exploit their commercial earning potential could embarrass the monarchy, but have agreed to let them give it a go, with a review in a year.

One source said: ‘Harry and Meghan just wanted more flexibility in their lives. They felt constrained by the institution and their place in the hierarchy. They were wheeled out when they were needed, otherwise their wings were clipped.

It comes after the prince told on Monday night of his disappointment at not being able to continue performing duties on behalf of his grandmother. He said: ‘What I want to make clear is we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you.

It has been reported Prince Harry's rift with William has been repaired but he is still at odds with Charles following the Duke of Sussex's dramatic exit from royal life.

The two-year quarrel stopped after they realized it was 'now or never', with Harry flying to Canada.

The Queen and Prince Charles decided not to strip Prince Harry of their HRH titles and Duke and Duchess of Sussex rank to avoid looking 'petty'. 

Her Majesty is said to have considered denying the couple of their most prized titles and instead referring to them as the Earl and Countess of Dumbarton – putting them at the same level as Edward and Sophie, Earl and Countess of Wessex.

A source told the Evening Standard: 'The Sussex title is one of the ancient royal dukedoms given to him ahead of his wedding to Meghan, along with other titles. Removing it was seriously considered and discussed at the highest level.'
