While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed the weekend with their children and the Queen at Balmoral in Scotland, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were enjoying a decidedly low-key Sunday with baby Archie, spotted enjoying a traditional roast at a local pub in Berkshire, just a stone's throw away from their Frogmore Cottage home.
The family-of-three were spotted in Winkfield village's The Rose & Crown pub tucking into a £15 roast lunch, by a businessman and his girlfriend, who told The Sun, that apart from them, no one else noticed the royal family.
"They were on a table with, I presume, a private secretary," the 53-year-old businessman told the publication.
"Meghan was cradling Archie most of the time. The little lad was as good as gold, I didn't hear him cry once while he was there.
"No other customers recognised them. The staff clearly knew who they were but kept the service low-key."
Adding, "They did indicate to me they had been there before. They just chatted away like any normal couple and were laughing a lot.
"After the controversy they have attracted they were getting their feet back on the ground with pub grub like millions of ordinary folk – and it was nice to see."
Harry reportedly washed his lunch down with a couple of pints of beer, while Meghan looked to have kept to water during their two-hour stay.
Believe it or not, roast dinners - in particular roast chicken - is a meal very close to the couple's hearts, with the couple revealing in their engagement interview in Nottingham Cottage, that the engagement happened while the two were cooking a roast dinner.
"It happened a few weeks ago, earlier this month, here at our cottage; just a standard typical night for us. Roasting a chicken… trying to roast a chicken," Harry said of the private moment at the time.
"She didn't even let me finish, she said 'can I say yes, can I say yes?' and then there were hugs and I had the ring in my finger and I was like can I - can I give you the ring? She goes - 'oh yes the ring'.
"It was a really nice moment, it was just the two of us and I think managed to catch her by surprise as well."
Meghan added: "It was so sweet and natural and very romantic."
Their family outing comes just days after the couple were criticised for using private jets to travel to two European countries within weeks, something critics felt contradicted the couple's advocacy for looking after the planet.
Earlier this week it was also revealed Harry and Meghan have hired two new members of staff – a private secretary and a digital communications expert.
According to The Sun, the royal couple have hired Fiona Milwham as their new private secretary, taking over from the Queen's former aide, Samantha Cohen.
Fiona has been described as the "obvious choice", and has an impressive resume, including being one of the youngest British ambassadors ever, after her appointment in Albania in 2009.
The Sun also reports the couple have hired a digital communications expert to join them.
The person in question in 26-year-old David Watkins, who previously worked for iconic British fashion label Burberry as their global social media coordinator.
"Harry and Meghan want to conquer the world and they want to do it through the prism of social media to really connect to their followers," a royal source told The Sun.
"David is the perfect person to help them do this: His amazing video skills and visionary photographs have already been [widely] praised by the Sussexes' fans."
While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge share their social media team with Buckingham Palace, David has been hired solely to work for Meghan and Harry.
