- Meghan Markle took baby Archie out for a walk and the paparazzi had a field day
- This was the first time the two were seen out in public since her hubby returned to the US from his grandpa, Prince Philip's funeral in the UK
- However, the 39-year-old has been criticised for having her photos take the shine off her nephew Prince Louis, who was celebrating his third birthday
Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle was seen for the first time in public since her husband Prince Harry returned from his grandfather Prince Philip's burial.
Markle has maintained a low profile since she and her husband relocated to California from the UK, where they have been staying for a year now. However, she was snapped taking a walk with her first child Archie with her baby bump showing.
The 39-year-old was dressed in a black T-shirt paired with blue jeans, an army utility jacket and pointed-toe nude flats. She also wore a black mask.
One-year-old Archie wore a black beanie, a grey sweatshirt paired up with rolled blue jeans and Velcro sneakers.
Markle was also carrying her baby boy's lunch box while he was carrying a small backpack.
However, the pictures did not impress the royal family's loyal followers as some questioned why her timing had to coincide with the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, who shared photos of her three-year-old baby Prince Louis during his birthday celebration.
This is what some had to say about Markle's timely photo:
"A new photo released, what a surprise! Wouldn’t you just know it’s Royal’s birthday today? It’s embarrassing and sad to take the shine off of your nephew!"
"Amazing how it lined up with the release of Prince Louis birthday. Amazing how that always happens. We haven’t seen Archie in how long? Just like that, he appears the same day as the Prince celebrates his birthday."
"Her PR team is really working hard."
Harry returned to the US immediately after the burial of his grandfather. He reportedly did not stay for the Queen's 95th birthday.
In other news by Briefly News, it was previously reported that Queen Elizabeth celebrated her birthday without her husband. The Queen, who turned a great old 95 years, was still in a two-week-long mourning period following her husband's passing, which made her birthday this year an even sadder and sombre occasion.
She didn't her special day alone though after recent reports revealed that her grandson, Prince Harry, had not left to go home to Los Angeles after the funeral but instead stayed in England to spend time with his grandma ahead of her 95th birthday.
The Queen last week went viral after a snap of her sitting by herself during Prince Philip's funeral was shared online. In the snap, the Queen, who was dressed in all black with a gracious hat to match, can be seen practising social distancing at the funeral that only had 30 people in attendance.
