The Duchess of Sussex took a commercial flight this morning following the recent row over her and Prince Harry’s use of private jets. Meghan, who was not joined by Harry or baby Archie, will watch her close pal Serena in the US Open final before heading home to Frogmore Cottage.
A source told The Times: “It is a last-minute trip. Excited to support her friend, and then come back.”
US-born Meghan has reportedly been thinking about the trip across the pond since Serena won her quarter-final earlier this week and the royal stayed up last night for the semi-final, catching her flight hours later.
It comes after the Sussexes faced accusations of hypocrisy when it emerged they took four private jets in 11 days over the summer to holidays in Ibiza and Nice.
