The private visit comes just one day after Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, reportedly made another private visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen, where she met with families and victims of London's Grenfell Tower fire with whom she previously collaborated on a cookbook. 

Following the visit, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their first official public appearance of 2020 at Canada House next to London's Trafalgar Square. The couple and their son Archie spent all of their down time over the holidays in British Columbia and wanted show their thanks for the hospitality they received. 

ET recently spoke with royal expert Katie Nicholl about the Sussex's plans for the new year and they include working with their official patronages. 

"So, the Palace won't give any details about exactly what they're going to be doing in the new year, but they have told me that they won’t be taking on any new patronages," Nicholl says. "So, I think we're going to see them visiting their charities, visiting the organizations that they're working with... They're keen to get back to work. I think it’s going to be a busy 2020."
