Heavily pregnant Meghan Markle plans to take just three months’ maternity leave after the arrival of Baby Sussex.
The duchess, 37, who is due to give birth any day, has told aides she wants to get back to work quickly — shunning a possible year’s leave.

A royal source said: “Meghan has made it very clear she wants to return to work as soon as possible. She has huge amounts of energy, is extremely determined and wants to be as hands-on as possible with her charities.
