The Sun reports that Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan, and Archie went – pardon my British – off on holiday, and they managed to keep it all very hush-hush.
Meghan turned 38 last week, and the Sussexes decided to hop aboard a private jet and go to Ibiza to celebrate her birthday. The Sun says that the Majorca Daily Bulletin claims to have some details about their little trip. Harry, Meghan, and the baby allegedly spent six days on the Spanish island, most likely in a private villa somewhere. They traveled with their own security detail, so no local security or local police were needed. No photographs of their stay were taken, so this was private private. No beach pics. No pictures of Meghan holding Archie. No pictures of Archie twirling glow-sticks between his fingers and letting the music move his soul at a secret baby cave rave.
Usually a story about Duchess Meghan comes with some shade, but it doesn’t seem like there’s much here for the press to hate on. A family went on a six-day beach vacation and didn’t bother the locals. Not even a single source claiming that Meghan left her room a mess and tipped housekeeping in coupons. But because this is the British press, of course they managed to find a way to drag Meghan’s birthday trip.
The Sun points out that the trip took place just five days after Harry spoke at the exclusive celebrity-filled Google Camp in Sicily. Picture it, Sicily, 2019. Harry takes the stage to deliver a speech on climate change, surrounded by people who took gas-guzzling private jets and superyachts to the event. Then Harry chartered another private jet so his wife could celebrate her birthday with an expensive private island getaway to a place Meghan was at three years ago.

Add to that, Meghan’s private jet island birthday party is allegedly not what was originally planned. The Sun reported last week that Meghan’s 38th birthday was supposed to be a low-key event in an attempt to make people forget about the PR nightmare that was her $360,000 baby shower in New York. Royal sources claim that Frogmore Cottage was going to host a modest party with a very small guest list. So small, Duchess Kate’s name was allegedly not on it (hmmm…I wonder why). But Meghan obviously didn’t want a pitiful cake from the ASDA bakery, which is maybe how they ended up in Ibiza.
Them going to Ibiza is good news for their dogs. Just think, six whole days where they could get away from Harry and Meghan and safely beg for tummy rubs from total strangers. It’s a vacation for everyone.
