A woman on the flight from Vancouver to Victoria told the Mirror: 'Harry was one of the first ones off the flight and was carrying his own bag. You could tell after a long flight from London he was tired and agitated.
'But as he saw the car his mood instantly changed. I couldn't be sure but it looked like Meghan was in the back waiting for him. 'Whoever it was he was very pleased to see them.'
The Sussexes have called the mansion home for the past two months. The transatlantic flight - which arrived six minutes late - was Harry's goodbye to the royal life that he has lived since his birth.
Now he will no longer use his courtesy HRH title - although the Queen did not formally strip it. He will be known simply as the Duke of Sussex.
Harry's last act as a fully-fledged royal was to attend the UK-Africa Investment Summit in London , where he held a 20-minute meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
He also had a private bilateral meeting with Moroccan Prime Mininster Saad-Eddine El Othmani, Malawian President Peter Mutharika, and Filipe Nyusi, president of Mozambique, at the request of the Government.
But he pointedly did not hang around in London to go to the reception hosted by William. It was a stepping stone for William in the long preparation for him becoming king and showcased the Royal Family's new order post-Harry.
An Instagram post following Harry's appearance at the UK-Africa Investment Summit said: 'The Duke of Sussex’s love for Africa is well known - he first visited the continent at the age of 13 and more than two decades later, the people, culture, wildlife and resilient communities continue to inspire and motivate him every day.'
Harry was at a formal private dinner at the Ivy in Chelsea for Sentebale, the charity supporting young people affect by HIV and Aids that he founded in 2006, when he effectively made a leaving speech on Sunday night.
He told invited guests: 'What I want to make clear is we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible.'
The Sussexes wanted to remain as working royals, but not prominent members, and drop their public funding so they could become financially independent - a dual role many commentators said was fraught with problems.
Critics have accused the couple of turning their backs on the monarchy to enjoy the freedom of being able to take on commercial ventures.
Thomas Woodcock, Garter King of Arms and the man who, alongside the Queen, approved Meghan's coat of arms as Duchess of Sussex, said a halfway house arrangement is 'unsatisfactory'.
Giving his personal opinion, he told the Times: 'I don't think it's satisfactory. One cannot be two things at once. You either are (royal) or you're not.'
Meanwhile, Colonel Richard Kemp, former commander of British troops in Afghanistan, wrote in the Telegraph that Harry was 'devoted to the Armed Forces' and described his stepping down from military roles as 'a terrible shame'.
He said: 'One of the most privileged men in the land, there were many people who did not want him to put his life on the line in the battle zone of Afghanistan where so many British troops were killed and maimed.
'Unlike most soldiers, he had to personally fight the system to get himself into action. But in the face of opposition from a government worried by the risk to national prestige if he was killed, wounded or captured, he eventually arrived in Afghanistan 'with butterflies in my stomach'.'
Colonel Kemp added: 'Soldiers who served alongside him during his two tours in Afghanistan, on the ground and in the air, have spoken of Harry's leadership and courage, of his down-to earth approach to ordinary soldiers and of his devotion to his comrades in arms.'
Meanwhile, Meghan smiled as she was photographed going for an early-morning hike carrying Archie in a baby carrier on her chest while holding on to her two dogs, black labrador Oz and beagle Guy on leashes.
She betrayed none of the anxiety of the tumultuous past two weeks, wrapping up in layers under an olive green beanie hat, wearing black leggings and her favourite Kamick ankle-high brown hiking boots.
Archie was dressed in a white onesie and bootees. Two Royal Protection Officers strolled behind her at a discreet distance as she strolled in Horth Hill Regional Park, enjoying the warmest morning for days.
During her stay without Harry it has been freezing, raining or snowing for most of the time.
