On April 11, Meghan Markle was spotted at the O’Hare International Airport of Chicago, even though she tried her hardest to travel under the radar and remain incognito.

Markle was seen wearing a Sox cap and an all-black ensemble, while surrounded by Chicago police security. When asked by the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Police Department said, “The State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security provides security details to certain foreign dignitaries and official guests while they are in the United States. The security we provide to these visiting dignitaries and guests is based on the level of threat they face in the United States.”

They also said that they never provided specific information about specific details. So don’t ask them any more questions.

TMZ reports that Markle will be in the city until April 15, and that her trip is limited to immigration business. The same day she was spotted at O’Hare, she was spotted at the VFS Global U.K. Visa Application Center where she was submitting her visa application before her wedding on May 19. The process took 10 minutes since Markle is said to have paid $1,500 for premium processing, which allows the visa to be ready within days.

According to The Cut, Markle submitted a family visa, which you can apply for as a partner or spouse of a British citizen. After a period of six months, she’ll be able to request a citizenship — a process that can last up to 3 years.
