Meghan Markle has returned to Canada with son Archie following their decision to semi-abdicate from the Royal Family.
This comes as the couple announced their decision to step down as senior royals – an announcement that was met with mixed reactions.
Some credit the pair for tending to their emotional needs following a tough few years of media scrutiny, while others condemn the couple for no longer aligning with the status quo.
After returning in the UK after their six-week break in Canada on Tuesday, Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, visited Canada's High Commission in London to thank the country for hosting them and said the warmth and hospitality they had received was "unbelievable".
Former screen actress Meghan, who hails from the US, lived and worked in Toronto during her time starring in the popular US drama Suits.

Palace sources have told BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond that Prince Harry and Meghan did not consult any other royal about making their personal statement.
The Royal Family was said to be "hurt" at the couple's statement.
In the statement, the couple announced that they now plan to split their time between the UK and North America, while "continuing to honour our duty to the Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages".
The decision came "after many months of reflection and internal discussions", they added.
As of Thursday afternoon, wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had also been moved from other members of the Royal Family at Madame Tussauds in London.

Prince Harry and Meghan had been placed next to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
Steve Davies, general manager at the attraction, said the couple were two of their most popular figures.
"Alongside the rest of the world we are reacting to the surprising news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back as senior royals," he said.
"From today Meghan and Harry's figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set."
