Prince Harry has revealed his grandmother Queen Elizabeth was in “great form” during their recent meeting.
The Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle paid a visit to the Queen and Prince Charles in the UK last Thursday, before they travelled to Holland for the Invictus Games.
The couple, who travelled without their two children, stayed at their UK residence Frogmore Cottage, before they spent Thursday morning with the Queen at Windsor Castle.
Speaking to NBC’s Today show about his visit to the Queen, Harry said: “It was really nice to catch up with her. Being with her, it was great. It was so nice to see her… she’s on great form.”
“She’s always got such a great sense of humour with me and I’m just making sure she’s protected and got the right people around her.”
Prior to last week’s visit, Meghan had not returned to Europe since March 2020, when she and Prince Harry carried out their final round of royal engagements before they officially stepped back as working royals at the end of that month.
Prince Harry has returned to the UK on two occasions: for his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021 and again in July 2021 to unveil a statue of his late mother Princess Diana alongside older brother Prince William.
The Royal family are yet to meet Meghan and Harry’s second child, Lilibet Diana, who was born last June.
Their daughter was named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet.
