Prince Harry and his wife met with Elizabeth II for the first time in two years.
Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle met with Queen Elizabeth II for the first time in two years, the Telegraph reports.
A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed to the publication that the couple visited the Queen as part of their trip to the Netherlands, where they plan to attend the Invictus Games (“Games of the Invictus”), which is followed by the former and current military who have become disabled. According to the publication, the couple arrived in London on Wednesday and stayed at a house on the grounds of Windsor Castle. According to the Telegraph, the couple also met Harry’s father, Prince Charles.
The publication recalls that the last time Prince Harry saw Elizabeth II was at her husband’s funeral, Prince Philip, in April 2021; Megan has not met with the Queen since the couple left for the United States in 2020.
Relations between Prince Harry and Megan with the rest of the royal family remain strained: first, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex unexpectedly announced that they were renouncing the status of high-ranking members of the royal family and intended to live independently, and then, already in California, where they moved in 2020, they gave a scandalous an interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which relatives were accused of indifference to them, and one unnamed even of racism.
