Meanwhile, The Duke of Sussex will today travel to the Netherlands just three days after the birth of his son Archie.
Prince Harry is due to visit The Hague to launch the one-year countdown to the Invictus Games after he and Meghan Markle announced they had called their baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Leading parenting expert Suzie Hayman has told the Press Association Harry is likely to find leaving his baby son so soon after his birth “agonising“, and said he would feel a “pang” to be leaving his wife and child.
But Meghan is likely to still have the company of her mother Doria Ragland at their Frogmore Cottage home while Harry is away on the short trip.
