Prince Harry leaves baby Archie at home with Meghan Markle as he attends Commonwealth bash

PRINCE HARRY left Meghan Markle and baby Archie at home to attend a party to celebrate 70 years of the Commonwealth this evening.

The Duke Of Sussex was set for a night off from baby duties to join the garden party bash at Marlborough House in London.


It comes as a lip reader revealed Harry told Meghan to “turn around” during the National Anthem at last Saturday’s Trooping of the Colour – Meghan's first outing since the birth.

Some royal watchers interpreted the awkward moment as a tiff between Harry and Meghan.

At this evening’s event, Harry is due to meet young people who are being honoured for making a difference in the world.

The Duke will meet winners of the inaugural Commonwealth Secretary-Generals Innovation for Sustainable Development Awards.
