Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have paid a courtesy visit to Queen Elizabeth — their first since they stepped down as working members of the British royal family in 2020.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are now based in California, visited the Queen on Thursday at the Windsor Castle.

The couple are heading to the Netherlands for Harry’s fifth Invictus Games slated to hold between April 16 and 22 in the Hague.

The competition, aimed at celebrating wounded service members and veterans, was originally scheduled for 2020 but delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Harry, 37, has been to the UK on two occasions since his family relocated but Meghan has remained in US.

In April last year, Harry turned up for the funeral of Prince Phillip, his grandfather. He also attended the unveiling of a statue for Princess Diana, his late mother, in July.

Harry and Meghan had left the UK in 2020 after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey wherein they bared lurid details of their struggles with the royal family.


During the interview, Meghan, citing a conversation she had with Harry, had alleged that some members of the royal family mulled not naming their son a prince because of his skin colour.

“In those months when I was pregnant… we have in tandem the conversation of ‘he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” she had said.
