The Duchess of Sussex reportedly jetted off to Ibiza, Spain, to celebrate her 38th birthday with husband the Duke of Sussex and little baby Archie Harrison – which would mark the three-month-old's first holiday abroad. Meghan is reported to have left the UK with Harry and Archie in tow on 6 August, two days after her 4 August birthday, and returned home on 12 August.

According to various Spanish media outlets, the trio are reported to have flown into the country on a private jet and stayed in a secluded villa away from prying eyes for their six-day trip. The family are also believed to have travelled with their own security team and hired five local escorts who know the area.

Meghan is a huge fan of Ibiza and has travelled there before. The former actress visited the island in 2016 with friends including fashion designer Misha Nonoo, who is reported to be the one who introduced Meghan and Harry. The Duke has also visited one of the Balearic Islands, travelling to Mallorca in 1986 with his mother, the late Princess Diana, and brother Prince William. The three stayed as guests of the Spanish royal family at the time.

This will be their first official tour as a family!"
