There should have been a lot of joy at Windsor Castle: hostess Queen Elizabeth II received a visit from her grandson Harry and his wife Meghan. Prince Charles was also said to have been present.
The Queen’s grandson, Prince Harry, and his wife, Duchess Meghan, surprisingly visited Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle. The couple visited Harry’s grandmother as they had previously hoped, a spokeswoman for the couple said on request Thursday evening.
The two are said to have stopped at Harry’s on the way to the Invictus Games in The Hague. The Paralympic Games for soldiers with disabilities begin on Saturday in The Hague. Harry created the Invictus Games in 2014.
Children apparently not there
British tabloids reported that the couple also met Harry’s father, Prince Charles, who was at Windsor Castle for the traditional Maundy Thursday ceremony. It has not been revealed if Harry and Meghan also have their children Archie and Lilibet with them. However, it had been said before that the children would not be traveling to Europe. The Queen has yet to meet the great-granddaughter, who is named after her own nickname.

The visit is still seen as a gesture of peace: relations between Meghan and Harry, who gave up their royal duties two years ago and have lived in the United States for a long time, and the royal family are heavily strained. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have repeatedly complained of inhuman pressure and racism at the palace.
