It's only been a few days since the former actress stepped off of the Commonwealth's soil, but now it's been reported that Meghan Markle returned to Canada after an emergency royal meeting. This comes less than 24 hours after the news that both Markle and Prince Harry supposedly had left son Archie in a Canadian city in order to properly deal with the aftermath of their departure from the Crown.

Earlier this week, after only a day of returning to royal duties, the couple announced that they'd be leaving their senior roles in the monarchy behind them, "We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen."

They also mentioned splitting their time between the U.K. and North America in the upcoming months, "We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages."

An apparent decision was made to leave eight-month-old Archie with Markle's longtime BFF Jessica Mulroney. This was so his parents would be able to properly officiate their decision with the rest of the royals in the U.K.

Although the couple had spent the last month on Vancouver Island, Mulroney's residence is situated in Toronto where she lives with husband Ben Mulroney and their three children. 

While it's being reported that Markle has returned to her son, it seems Harry will only be reuniting with his family over the course of the next few days. The Prince has previously scheduled royal engagements up until next Thursday. 

In the midst of Markle and Harry's back and forth, Her Majesty The Queen has released her own statement on the royal change, saying the family is working together in order to come up with "workable solutions" that'll comply with Markle and Harry's wishes.

The statement comes after reports that the Crown themselves were blindsided by the decision. 

However, the royal family was not deterred from celebrating Duchess Kate's 38th birthday at Kensington Palace that same night.
