Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle visits a women s shelter in Canada as speculation continues in the U.K. over the couple s relationship with the queen.
Meghan Markle has already embarked on her new independent lifestyle days after her and Prince Harry s big announcement.
The Duchess of Sussex remained in Vancouver, Canada as Prince Harry met with the Queen this week for " very constructive discussions " about how the couple s new part-time roles will play out.
A new report reveals details about Markle s day-to-day life in Vancouver since breaking free from the royal family, and it seems that the Duchess is already assuming the role of a commoner.

According to E! , Markle has been staying at the same million-dollar mansion that David Foster and Katharine McPhee recommended the couple use for their Christmas holiday in Canada.
But a source told the outlet that when the Duchess is not holed up inside the lavish residence. She has actually been seen leaving the house in the middle of the day "just to get out."
Unlike her life overseas, Markle has been driving a Range Rover to get to and from where she needs to be, the insider told the outlet.
When the Duchess is behind the wheel, a security detail follows "closely" behind her, E! reported.
The source claimed that the former "Suits" star was even spotted at the airport picking up someone who resembled her mom, Doria Ragland .
The 38-year-old has been the buzz of Buckingham Palace in the days following her and Prince Harry s royal exit. Prince Harry is reportedly scheduled to attend an event in the U.K. on Thursday while baby Archie remains in Vancouver with Markle.

On Monday, Queen Elizabeth II released a statement in support of Markle and Harry s decision to become part-time royals. However, she did make it clear their decision was not what the rest of the royal family preferred.
Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family, the reigning monarch shared in a statement. My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghans desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.
Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives, the 93-year-old continued. It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK. These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.
