The Duchess of Sussex is still on maternity leave following Archie’s arrival more than three weeks ago on Bank Holiday Monday, May 6.

She has stayed out of the public eye at her and Harry’s Frogmore Cottage home in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

While she has been looking after Archie, Harry has been busy switching between life as a dad and a working royal.

The Prince has been hard at work on royal engagements, despite being on paternity leave, and was last seen yesterday attending the opening day of the ICC Cricket World Cup.

But reports are emerging that Meghan might make her first public appearance next week – alongside the whole Royal Family.

She could make her return to the spotlight next Saturday at the celebrations of the Queen’s official birthday – Trooping the Colour.

The high-profile annual event sees the royals join Her Majesty on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch an RAF flypast.

The traditional day of celebrations usually see the likes of Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton join the Queen among others.

And last year it saw Harry and Meghan turn out in front of the huge crowds packing The Mall.

It is believed Meghan could make another appearance at the event, despite being on maternity leave.

Last year Kate took a break from her maternity leave with Prince Louis to attend the ceremony.

She also stepped out at Trooping just six weeks after giving birth to Princess Charlotte.

It is reported Louis, who will be 14-months-old, will make his debut appearance at the event.

Daily Star Online has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.

The Queen, 93, has never missed Trooping throughout her reign apart from in 1955, when the event was cancelled due to a national rail strike.

The event involves a military parade, with 1,400 officers taking part as well as 200 horses and over 400 musicians from ten bands.
