Meghan's airport sighting came eight days since she and Prince Harry announced that they would be quitting their duties as senior royals and splitting their time between the UK and North America. 

Meghan is believed to have driven herself to the airport from the palatial £10.7million [$14million] Canadian mansion on Vancouver Island where she's largely been holed up since Thanksgiving with Archie and his nanny.

The Queen, Harry's 93-year-old grandmother, was said to be particularly hurt by Meghan and Harry's decision to step down as senior royals.  

After the Sandringham summit, the Queen issued a rare personal statement that made clear her regret that the Sussexes had decided to step down.

But she said she respected their wish to live a 'more independent' life and had given her permission for them to spend time in Canada, as well as the UK, while these 'complex' matters were being resolved.

The biggest sticking points are understood to be the couple’s desire to earn their own living and how far they should be allowed to 'commercialise' their roles, as well as what royal duties they will still be expected to carry out.

A plan is likely to be announced within days. Meanwhile, 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. 

At least two permanent employees – a house manager and a cleaner – are being moved to other duties within the Queen's household, sources The Daily Mail on Wednesday.

Other members of staff who are used on an ad hoc basis, such as chefs, maids and footmen, have been told their services are no longer required at the couple's Windsor residence.

Sources said Harry and Meghan operated Frogmore, on the Queen's Windsor estate, with a 'skeleton staff' and no-one was being made redundant. But it is understood the employees are having to switch jobs as a 'knock-on effect' of the couple's decision to relocate to North America for at least part of the year.

When they made their announcement last week, Harry and Meghan made clear they wished to keep the five-bedroom home in Windsor, which was a gift from the Queen. It was previously five separate staff cottages but was knocked into one larger residence, controversially using £2.4 million ($3.14 million) of taxpayers' money.

On their new website, Harry and Meghan state that the Grade II-listed building in Windsor Home Park was owned by the Queen and was refurbished from the Sovereign Grant, given to her by the Government, as part of her responsibility to 'maintain the upkeep of buildings with historical significance'.

It is not clear whether the Queen will accede to that request, although sources have indicated she is privately unhappy at the amount of money spent on it when the couple will be there for significantly less time.

Also on Thursday, DailyMail.com obtained exclusive photos of Meghan's ex-husband Trevor Engelson visiting a hair salon in Beverly Hills.  

It marked the first time Engelson had been photographed in public in several months and since Meghan and Harry's announcement.   

Engleson politely declined to comment on the royal drama as he left the salon and got into his Porsche 911.

They dated for six years before getting engaged in 2010.

The couple married in Jamaica in September, 2011 in front of 100 family members and friends.

But within weeks of their wedding Meghan won her break-out role on TV legal drama 'Suits,' and spent months each year filming in Toronto, Canada while Engelson stayed at their home in Los Angeles.

She is seen on January 12 as the royal family attended Sunday Service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk The distance eventually took its toll and they separated in the summer of 2013.

Their marriage officially ended in 2014 with 'irreconcilable differences' cited in their divorce papers. 

Engelson has since moved on, however, marrying nutritionist and heiress Tracey Kurland, 33, on May 11 last year, almost exactly a year after Meghan and Prince Harry tied the knot.

A close friend of Meghan's weighed in on the royal drama in an interview with DailyMail.com published Thursday, revealing that the duchess feels she can now do what she pleases without asking for permission after her decision to quit as a senior royal.

The insider friend explained that the Meghan feels she can 'finally breathe' since she relinquished her royal duties and has free reign over her life again.

The friend said: 'She told her inner circle of friends that her soul was being crushed and that the decision to leave was a matter of life or death - meaning the death of her spirit.

'She also felt like she couldn't be the best mother to Archie if she wasn't being her true, authentic self. Something she felt she couldn't be in the royal family confines.

'She said she didn't want Archie picking up on her stress and anxiety. She felt like it was a toxic environment for him because there was too much tension and pent-up frustrations.'

Now that the Queen has agreed to allow her and Harry to split their time between the UK and North America, the friend said Meghan 'has a lot up her sleeve that she wants to do'.

Meghan 'will continue making surprise visits to different places that help women and children. She wants to feel embraced by her community, something she says she didn't feel in the UK. She felt stifled and restricted.' 

DailyMail.com revealed earlier this week that Meghan had the full support of her mother Doria Ragland to leave, as a source said the 63-year-old 'was really worried about Meghan... and is relieved that her daughter is putting her mental health and well being first'.

The insider said Meghan was 'miserable in the UK' and 'wasn't sleeping well and started having anxiety attacks about her future'.
