A few days after she was seen enjoying the freedom of the open road, Meghan Markle was spotted again out and about in Canada, which appears to be her current residence. This time paparazzi caught her being a very good friend by picking someone up from the airport. That someone is reportedly Heather Dorak, an L.A.-based Pilates instructor who is a friend of Markle’s and attended the Sussexes’ 2018 wedding.

After she was sighted this morning, the Daily Mail released a series of photos of Markle — accompanied by what appears to be a security guard — picking up Dorak from the Victoria airport. Markle waited in the car, but the photos revealed that she’d switched out her fascinator for a more Meghan-y look of a black beanie and sunglasses.

This evidence of Markle being a good friend comes a week after she and her husband Prince Harry announced their plans to step down as senior royals, explaining in a statement that they have “chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent.”

Part of their decision was ostensibly to avoid British media scrutiny, although the tabloids still appear to be trailing her 3,000 miles away. That said, all they seem to be finding is various evidence of Markle’s ability to drive her own car, and her hobby of spending all of her free time visiting charities.
