Meghan Markle beams as she pops in for tea with women at crisis centre in Canada

Meghan Markle has been spotted beaming as she visited a women's crisis centre in Canada.

The Duchess of Sussex was spotted for the first time yesterday since she and husband Prince Harry announced they were 'quitting' the royal family, where she was photographed boarding a sea plane from Vancouver Island.

The Downtown Eastside Women's Centre in Vancouver later posted the photo, which shows Meghan with members of the centre.

The charitable centre acts as a safe-space for women and their children in the Downtown Eastside area who have experienced violence, poverty, homelessness and addiction.

"Look who we had tea with today! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues affecting women in the community," the post said.

Yesterday, the Duchess of Sussex was photographed arriving at a sea boat on Vancouver Island to fly to the mainland in Canada after leaving a $14million waterside mansion where the couple stayed during the festive season.

In photos seen by the Mirror, the royal was wearing a large fur-lined olive green coat, covering much of her face, as well as large brown snow boots and jeans.

Meghan is shown smiling and talking to her members of security as she walks towards the Whistlers Air seaplane. But the couple's son baby Archie was nowhere to be seen. Harry meanwhile remains in the UK where he is expected to host a draw for the Rugby League World Cup as he wraps up existing royal duties.

The former Hollywood actress fled to Canada with eight-month-old Archie with members of her security after news broke that the couple planned to retire as senior royals.

After Prince Harry and Meghan released the bombshell statement saying they would be "stepping back" as senior royals, the family scrambled to organise a summit to negotiating the future of the monarchy.

During the two-hour crisis summit at Sandringham House on Monday, the Queen gave her blessing to the couple, allowing a "transitional period" while all the details are ironed out.
