The Details Of Harry & Megan's Surprise Meeting With The Queen Are So Sweet
The couple visited the Queen earlier this month.
Last week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly visited Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle while on their way to the Invictus Games in the Netherlands. According to People, the trip marked the couple’s first time traveling to Europe together in over two years when they officially stepped down from their positions as senior royals in March of 2020.
Now, Harry is opening up about their meeting with the Queen. People reports he did so in an April 18 interview with BBC while promoting his visit to the Invictus Games. The Invictus Games are an international sporting competition for wounded military veterans that Harry founded in 2014. The fifth annual event was meant to take place in 2020; however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was postponed to 2021 before being rescheduled to 2022.
Harry said part of his discussion with the Queen included her offering support for British competitors at the Invictus Games. “She had plenty of messages for Team U.K., which I have already passed on to most of them,” he revealed to the BBC, according to People. “So, it was great to see her. I'm sure she would love to be here if she could.”
People reported Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle last week. They then traveled to The Hague, The Netherlands, where the Invictus Games officially kicked off on April 16.
According to Page Six, Meghan shared the sweetest message about her husband during the games’ opening ceremony.
“It is my distinguished honor to introduce someone that I think you’ll all be very excited to hear from. I could not love and respect him more and I know that all of you feel the same,” she said. “He’s the founder of the Invictus Games, and the father to our two little ones, Archie and Lili. Please welcome my incredible husband, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex.”
Once Harry arrived on stage, he reportedly gave Meghan an intimate kiss. The couple was also seen holding hands while walking into the games’ opening ceremony on April 16, as well as at one of the events the following day.
The Invictus Games run through April 22 and feature 500 competitors from 20 countries competing in sporting activities.
