The friend shared that now the life of the former “Suits” actress and her royal husband consists of things like hikes in the woods near their Vancouver Island mansion off the Pacific Coast where the are raising their nine-month old son, Archie.

“They both love to be outside and have been loving it there,” explained a friend, adding that the couple is enjoying doing simple things like yoga and walks with their family dogs.

“They are enjoying living a quiet life,” an insider shared with the outlet. “They go for long walks, they do yoga, and Meghan [Markle] cooks. They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.”

And as far as what else they former royals are up to, a close friend said that, “It’s full throttle for them right now. They have a lot happening in 2020, and it will be really exciting to see.”

It all comes after Queen Elizabeth II issued a statement last month releasing Harry and Markle of their duties, stating that they are “no longer working members of the Royal Family.”
