Meghan, 39, claimed in her TV interview that after joining the Royal Family, she did not see her passport again until she was in California.

But insiders said she must have shown her passport to border officials at 12 countries she visited as a tourist during that time.

The Sun today reveals she flew off on 13 holidays after starting dating Harry, including trips to New York, Ibiza, Botswana, Italy and Amsterdam.

The duchess told Oprah: “You couldn’t just go. You couldn’t. I mean, you have to understand, as well, when I joined that family, that was the last time, until we came here, that I saw my passport, my driver’s licence, my keys. All that gets turned over. I didn’t see any of that any more.”

It is understood from royal sources that Meghan’s passport had to be kept safe to ensure it did not fall into the wrong hands. But it would still have been used by her for her holidays.

All members of the Royal Family — apart from the Queen — require a passport to travel abroad.

The couple also took part in three official royal tours, taking in Morocco, South Africa and Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.

Royal author Margaret Holder said: “Of course the Royal Family would want to keep Meghan’s passport safe.

“But it’s unthinkable she didn’t carry it for personal and private trips such as her New York baby shower, travelling to see friends in Canada, partying in Amsterdam and going to Lake Como with George Clooney.”

Buckingham Palace did not want to comment yesterday.
