In an interview with NBC and broadcast this Wednesday, Prince Harry looks back on his surprise visit to his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
For the first time in over two years, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Queen Elizabeth II, who is due to celebrate her birthday in a few days. Guest of the Today program on NBC News, the prince returned to this secret meeting with his grandmother. “It was so good to see her…she’s in great shape,” he said.
Although he now lives on the other side of the Atlantic, on the west coast of the United States, Prince Harry explains that he makes sure that Elizabeth II is well surrounded. “I make sure she’s protected and has the right people around her,” he says.
In this interview, which will be broadcast in full this Wednesday, Prince Harry says he feels at home in the United States. “We [there] were welcomed with open arms,” the prince said.
Passing through the Old Continent
Harry is currently in Europe, in the Netherlands, accompanied by his wife Meghan, for their first public appearance on the Old Continent since their decision to step back from the royal family two and a half years ago.
The prince opened the Invictus Games on Saturday , games created for wounded soldiers, and praised the courage of the Ukrainian team present in the Netherlands. “Your courage and your choice to come and be here cannot be overstated,” he said at a moving ceremony.
