The army green coat was bought by the Duchess a number of years ago and became a go-to when she lived in Toronto while filming the legal drama Suits

Meghan was seen wearing the coat on set of the TV show in November 2017 - just weeks before she quit acting and announced her engagement to Prince Harry.

It is the latest signal that the Duchess is returning to her pre-royal style after she was spotted earlier this week in a cozy cable-knit sweater by The Row that she wore on screen as Rachel Zane in Suits

As Meghan welcomes her friend Heather to Canada, Prince Harry, 35, remains in the UK. Their son Archie is in Canada with his mother.

Dorak, who hails from in San Antonio, Texas, became Meghan's pilates guru and attended the royal wedding in May 2018 with her husband Matt Cohen. She runs the Pilates Platinum brand, which the Duchess started attending in Los Angeles. 

Meghan dressed down for the airport run today, pairing the warm down coat with a black ribbed beanie pulled low over her brunette locks. The Duchess added a pair of brown sunglasses from her sizable collection.

Meghan has given an early indication of how she intends to spend her time in Canada by making two impromptu visits to community groups in Vancouver.  

The first stop was the Downtown Eastside Women's Center on Tuesday afternoon, where was on hand to 'offer support' and 'boost the staff's spirits'.

Outside the Duchess wrapped up in another khaki green coat but it is not known if it is the same Soia & Kyo style.

The accessories were typically meaningful, with the Virgo zodiac necklace suggesting that Meghan wants to keep her husband close while he is in the UK. 

Such casual separates were staples of Meghan's wardrobe pre-Harry and serve as yet another indication that she is eager to carve her own path away from the scrutiny - and formality - of the royal family.
