The mum-of-one, 38, looks elegant in a tan-coloured Reiss coat, with buttons lining the cuff, which typically retails for £345.

Under the snug garment, the duchess is wearing a £89.95 brown satin midi-length skirt by Massimo Dutti, and a matching turtle-neck top.

She’s finished off the chic look with brown suede Jimmy Choo heels, and kept her trademark brunette locks down and wavy. 

Meanwhile, husband Prince Harry, 35, who dressed smartly in a navy suit, could be seen placing a protective hand on his wife’s arm as they left their car.

The royal couple are meeting with Janice Charette, who is the High Commissioner in Canada to the UK, as well as staff members who support the partnership between the two locations.

Buckingham Palace said the Sussexes hope to “thank them for the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay in Canada.”

They will visit the Canada Gallery, and see a special exhibition by Indigenous Canadian artist, Skawennati.

It is reported the couple came directly to Canada House from a private visit to The Hub, the Grenfell community kitchen project that Meghan collaborated with on the Together cookbook.

It’s not the first time Meghan and Prince Harry have visited Canada House, and their last appearance was on Commonwealth Day in March 2019.

Last year they met with young Canadians in industries such as business, fashion, the arts and academia, to discuss opportunities for young people working in the Commonwealth.

Prince Harry and Meghan turned down the offer to spend Christmas with the Queen and other senior royals in Sandringham.

They spent Thanksgiving in Meghan's native US, where they enjoyed family time with "close family."

The pair are said to be "exhausted" by 2019 after they were dogged with criticism over their use of private jets and "excessive" requests for privacy.

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, also joined the couple in Canada, according to reports.

The couple were last seen in public together at the Remembrance Day services, with Harry doing a solo appearance at the Royal Albert Hall for the OnSide Awards.
