Being a royal is hard work, so can you blame Meghan Markle for taking a break?

The Duchess of Sussex secretly visited Canada for a few days (without Prince Harry) and went almost entirely undetected!

Meghan visited best friend Jessica Mulroney in Toronto. It was a calm weekend, with Meghan apparently cooking with her BFF and playing with Jessica’s three young children. You know, just like any normal, nonroyal friend would.

But maybe the most interesting part of this story is how Meghan traveled back and forth between England and Canada. There was no private plane or elaborate disguise — Meghan simply boarded an Air Canada flight just like every other passenger!

Of course, some precautions were taken. “She was dressed in skinny black jeans, a black cashmere sweater, black ballerina flats and a black baseball cap pulled down over her face,” according to reports. She was also escorted by two security guards, but all in all, the small entourage made an effort to stay as incognito as possible.

Kensington Palace did contact the airline before Meghan’s flight and instructed the staff not to ask for photos, and it sounds like the former actress was left almost entirely alone. “Meghan had one glass of champagne before settling down to watch Book Club,” says a source. “She seemed very relaxed and sipped on peppermint tea during the journey.”

Although this was Meghan’s first trip out of the country without her husband, she seemed to have a great time visiting her best friend.
