On Wednesday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited his grandmother Queen Elizabeth and father Prince Charles, according to reports. They first visited Prince Charles for about fifteen minutes following which they went to the Queen’s apartment at Windsor Castle. This was a more relaxed visit and the couple are supposed to have said that the Queen will see her great grandchildren soon. The Queen was happy with the visit as she believes that Easter is all about spiritual renewal and forgiveness.
The secret visit by the couple no longer remained a secret as they were spotted by churchgoers at Windsor who had gathered at the St. George’s chapel for the Maundy Thursday service. This was the first joint visit of the couple to the U.K. and after the visit, they proceeded to the Invictus Games in Holland.
Reports say that it was on Wednesday that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived in Britain. They spent Wednesday night at Frogmore, located on the grounds of Windsor Castle. They met with the Queen and Prince Charles on Thursday.

Prince Harry’s visit is been looked at as an “olive branch” as he had not attended the recent memorial service of his grandfather Prince Philip, at Westminster Abbey. It is hoped that this is a genuine sign of rapprochement as the Queen would love to see her family reconciled, after the acrimony in the past few years.
The Queen is 95-years old. She will turn 96 next Thursday, April 21. She has been suffering from health problems including COVID. She is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee year and would like to see all her family members and her countrymen and countrywomen and children join in the iconic, once-in-a-lifetime celebrations.
Queen Elizabeth has also not seen her great granddaughter , who was born in the U.S.A. Her great grandson Archie has also grown up in the interim period. Reports say that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said that she would see them soon, indicating that the entire family might visit Britain soon, possibly during June as a part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations across the nation.
