The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly took their baby son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to Ibiza for his first holiday, earlier this month.

According to Spanish newspaper El Pais, Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, flew to the Balearic island by private jet with their security team and returned to London earlier this week.

The report says the royal couple spent five days in a private villa, to celebrate Meghan’s 38th birthday, which was on August 4.

It marks three-month-old Archie’s first trip abroad, ahead of the Sussexes’ royal tour of Africa this autumn.

No images have emerged of the duke and duchess and it has been reported that ‘local security forces were not needed.'

Yahoo UK has reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment.

It comes after controversial reports claimed Prince Harry travelled to the Google summit in Sicily by private jet, earlier this month, where he gave a speech about climate change, while barefoot.
