Since welcoming baby Archie into the family over the summer, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept up an exhausting schedule, including a royal tour of Africa, so it’s only natural the new parents are ready for a break.

This evening The Duke and Duchess of Sussex accompanied Her Majesty The Queen and members of @TheRoyalFamily to the annual @RoyalBritishLegion Festival of Remembrance. This special event, which has taken place every year since 1923 at the @RoyalAlbertHall, commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts. • This year’s Festival marked the 75th anniversary of a number of crucial battles of 1944, with a particular emphasis on the collaboration and friendship of the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies who fought them. A unique tribute was given to acknowledge those involved both past and present, culminating in a special parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944. • Their Royal Highnesses, who last year attended their first Festival of Remembrance together, were honoured to once again pay tribute to all casualties of war and remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. #FestivalOfRemembrance #WeWillRememberThem Photo © PA / Royal British Legion

As part of their break, Harry and Meghan will forego spending Christmas Day with the Queen at Sandringham and instead celebrate Archie’s first festive holiday with Meghan’s mother, Doria, in Los Angeles.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month,” a statement from the palace read. “Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend the holidays this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland. This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty the Queen.”
