The Duke of Sussex traveled solo across the pond before heading to The Invictus Games in Düsseldorf. While Markle was initially on the schedule to appear at the games, she was oddly removed from the itinerary at the last minute.

With both the first anniversary of his grandmother's death and The Invictus Games being special occasions for Prince Harry, Markle's absence was amplified amid rumors that the couple's marriage is strained.

Markle has been spotted without her engagement ring twice within the last month. If the couple needed a break from one another, Prince Harry's trip to Germany certainly provided space. The games are set to kick off on September 9 and will run through September 16.

According to a source close to the ex-Royals, Markle refused to travel so that she could "stay home with Archie and Lilibet” and avoid the "limelight."
