Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are heading to the U.S. for a sabbatical, and, of course, they are bringing baby Archie with them. After a tumultuous year, the royal couple is well deserved of a little break, and what better place to spend it than Meghan's home country. According to sources, the duke and duchess of Sussex are taking six weeks off their royal duties, meaning that as of next month, they are taking a break from any work-related events and obligations. Meghan and Prince Harry want to enjoy some precious family time with Archie and take a break from being in the spotlight.
The trip to the U.S. will be the first for Baby Archie and the first for the three of them as a family, and it is safe to assume it will be very special for Meghan. Five months old Archie is no doubt going to have a great time in the United States, and his maternal grandmother, Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, is probably over the moon to have them visiting for a while. According to reports, Archie and his parents are going to spend Thanksgiving in the U.S., and how fun for Meghan to get to spend baby Archie's first thanksgiving in California with her family.
As reported by E! Online, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be returning to the United Kingdom for Christmas, which will be traditionally spent with Queen Elizabeth II. The royal family always spend Christmas together at the Sandringham estate, and this will be Archie's first Christmas with his cousins and relatives.
Prince Harry and Meghan are no strangers to traveling with a baby as they have already practiced by bringing Archie along with them to their trip to southern Africa. In a trailer for the upcoming documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, Meghan opened up about how it has been a challenge for her being a newlywed and new mother while dealing with media's scrutiny.
It appears as if this six-week sabbatical could not have come at a better time for the royal couple. After bringing five-month-old Archie on an official trip, they definitely deserve some family time.
