Meghan Markle has been “keeping her head down” following the bombshell release of Prince Harry’s memoir earlier this month. The royal couple have faced mounting criticism since stepping down from duties two years ago. But as Harry promotes his book, Meghan is working on “upcoming projects”, it has been claimed.
A source told Us Weekly: “Meghan has been keeping her head down in Montecito, taking care of the kids and working on projects that are coming up in the months ahead.”
They added that Meghan has been “happy to let Harry take center stage”.
“He’s flying all over the place to promote Spare but most of the time he’s returning home to Montecito and not staying out of town very often because he wants to be with the kids.”

It comes as Netflix announced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s explosive recent series is its second-highest ranked documentary ever.
Netflix reported its fourth quarter earnings on Thursday and disclosed a gain of 7.7 million subscribers during the October-December period, a stretch that included the debut of an ad-supported option for seven dollars (£5.65) per month.
According to Nielsen BookData, which collects and provides information on distribution and sales measurement of books, Harry’s headline-grabbing autobiography Spare sold 467,183 copies in its first week.
The memoir, which hit the shelves on January 10, includes claims that the Prince of Wales physically attacked him and teased him about his panic attacks, and that the King put his own interests above Harry’s and was jealous of the Duchess of Sussex and the Princess of Wales.
As the duke continued a run of high-profile promotional interviews, he said he “would like nothing more” than for his children to have relationships with the royal family.
His remarks about his son and daughter came despite the criticism he leveled at his brother, father and stepmother Camilla.
He also described his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, as his “guardian angel” and said she is with him “all the time”.
