ET has also learned that despite reports that Meghan and Harry honeymooned in Canada and Ireland, the couple, in fact, went back to where they first fell in love: Africa.

"She was still near the heart of the action", Little says.

Over the weekend, the duchess appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with the rest of the royal family for Trooping the Colour, marking the Queen's official 92nd birthday. The duchess stepped out looking all glam in a pale pink, off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress with a matching wide-brimmed fascinator. The Duchess of Sussex announced that she would be leaving the show following her November 2017 engagement, and her final scenes - including Rachel and Mike's NY wedding - aired earlier this year.

"There's no one laying this out. and there were a lot of kids who everyone would want at the front", the insider tells People.

However, a palace source reckons the former Suits star wouldn't have been given instructions on where to stand on the day, and likely made the decision herself. As usual, they also looked adorable for this major royal family photo op, with their 7-year-old cousin Savannah Phillips nearly stealing the show by pretending to conduct the orchestra or by putting her hand over George's mouth.
