Prince Harry stepped out sans Meghan Markle in his latest engagement.

On Wednesday, the Duke of Sussex visited St. Vincent’s Catholic Primary School in London alone. Prince Harry arrived in a blue blazer, white shirt and jeans for the said engagement.

He met with the school ambassadors before planting trees with the pupils. Prince Harry also received presents for his royal baby with Markle including an eco-friendly yellow raincoat and Wellington boots.

Prince Harry’s visit is part of Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) initiative to highlight the importance of trees to the environment. The soon-to-be dad has been part of the said program for some time now. He has visited several QCC forest dedications in Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji, Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada.

Meanwhile, Markle was noticeably missing from the said outing. According to Sarra Gray, a journalist for Express, the Duchess of Sussex could be on maternity leave already, so she didn’t join Prince Harry’s engagement.

However, a day before Prince Harry’s solo outing, they were still seen together at the New Zealand House signing a book of condolence and paying respect to those who were killed in the New Zealand mass shootings last week.

Aside from that, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were also seen attending the christening of Zara Tindall’s daughter Lena last weekend. On Saturday, Markle was stunning in her burgundy coat as she joined the low-key ceremony for Lena’s christening where Prince Harry was chosen to be one of the godfathers.

Queen Elizabeth II was also present but Prince Philip, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles were all missing. According to Gray, even if Markle was spotted in those events it’s possible that she’s still on maternity leave because those engagements could be classified as personal outings instead of work.

Prince Harry and Markle will soon welcome their firstborn with reports claiming that the duchess is only a few weeks away from her due date. Markle is expected to give birth around the end of April to the beginning of May, which suggests she is only six weeks away from delivering her baby.
