Duchess Camilla must be sleeping well this week because she’s been relieved of British tabloid punching bag duty – Meghan Markle is back in town! March 31st is Prince Harry and Meghan’s last day as seniors royals. But before they have to take “Royal” off all their social media and T-shirts they planned to hawk on Etsy, they have to finish up a few previously scheduled royal engagements. Harry has been in London already hyping up the Invictus Games and having four-hour heart-to-hearts with Grammy, er, THE QUEEN. But now Meghan is there to do one last whirl of smiles, nods and handshakes (OK, maybe not that…unless you’re Prince William) before she can steal Harry once and for all on the other side of the pond! Meanwhile, Archie is back in Canada.
The Daily Mail notes Meghan stepped out Thursday night in London for her first appearance since she and Harry announced they were quitting the bitch known as the monarchy back in January. Meghan was spotted earlier in the day, and I’m surprised she wasn’t wearing an “I HEART CANADA” tank top to show where her allegiances lie these days:

Mother Nature: U.K. Edition seemed to not be too happy for Meghan’s return, as it was pouring rain while the Sussexes strolled into the Endeavour Fund Awards (pics below). Because the two won’t be frontline royals after the end of this month, they will no longer be “professionally” affiliated with the organization, but it’s a Harry passion project, so he can still have personal ties to it. People says Harry and Meghan are expected to present an award at the event, and Harry is going to make a speech. If it doesn’t end with a mic drop and “Fire crotch out!” I will be very disappointed.
Page Six says Harry and Meghan are also set to attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday. Then, get your eyeballs ready, because Monday is when they reunite with QE2, Camilla, William, Prince Charles, and Duchess Kate for the Commonwealth Day service. This will be the first time they’ve all been spotted together publicly since…a while. While I would love nothing more than to see Westminster Abbey look like a Jerry Springer set on Monday, I expect this reunion to be a more dignified dysfunctional reunion. Get ready for an ever-so-subtle “Fuck you, bitch” in the way only royals know: a curtsy that is one centimeter too short, a smile that does NOT show teeth or, EGAD, no pantyhose!!!
