After a three-day stay in New York Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been reunited with their children Archie and Lilibet after landing in California.
The pair carried out their first public engagement since welcoming baby Lilibet in a visit of New York City, that gave a subtle nod to the couple’s royal roots.
The Sussexes arrived in the city on Thursday, visiting a 9/11 memorial along with New York City mayor Bill de Blasio and the state’s governor, Kathy Hochul.
While in New York, they booked to stay at The Carlyle, known as New York’s “Tower of Power”, and were spotted having a drink at the hotel’s bar.
The Carlyle was known to be a favourite of Harry’s mum Princess Diana, who often stayed there when she was in the city.
Now, The Mail Online reports that the couple have been pictured returning to their home after touching down in Santa Barbara, California.
Pictures obtained by the outlet appear to show the Duke and Duchess of Sussex returning home on Saturday night.
They were seen embracing members of staff who had accompanied them on their brief visit before going back to their Montecito mansion.
During their trip and while touring the One World Observatory on Thursday, the couple spoke about mental health with Mr De Blasio.
The New York City mayor said: “They’re good people and they’re really committed to the world.
“I got a great vibe, particularly the work that they’re doing on mental health … I think the prince makes a great point when he says, ‘mental fitness,’ calling it ‘mental fitness’ as a positive aspirational idea. That was one of the things we talked about. I really admire what they’re both doing on that.”
They also also met with the US ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield.
Writing on Twitter, the ambassador said they had an “important discussion” that included the pandemic, racial justice and raising awareness of mental health.
When asked about her return to New York, Ms Markle told reporters: “It’s wonderful to be back, thank you.”
