Prince Harry and Meghan Markle managed to pull off a secret trip to see the Queen at Windsor Castle on Thursday and royal enthusiasts all have the same reaction.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the UK together for the first time since stepping down as senior working royals in 2020. They were en route to The Hague in The Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

Omid Scobie, royal correspondent for Harper's Bazaar, received word from a Sussex spokesperson confirming that the couple were able to meet the Queen in person on Thursday morning.

He tweeted: “It was a Windsor visit that their team recently revealed the duke ‘hoped to do’.”

It is understood that the Prince Harry and Meghan did not bring their children, Archie, 2, and Lilibet, 10 months, along for the visit.

After news of the secret rendezvous came to light, people on social media were delighted to hear that both Prince Harry and Meghan were able to visit the Queen, who recently overcame covid-19.

“This is amazing how Harry and Meghan scoot into the UK meet with the Queen and scoot right out and they didn't find out until after the fact,” one person tweeted. “I love the Sussex's team.”

Prince Harry has brought a claim against the Home Office after it confirmed that he would no longer receive the same level of personal security when visiting from the US despite offering to pay for the protective security himself.

After some speculation predicting that the Sussexes would avoid visiting the Queen during their trip to the Netherlands, royal supporters were pleased to hear that the secret UK trip was something the couple had always planned.

“Excellent, I had no doubt they would,” said one Twitter user. “Harry always said he would visit and I'm very glad Meghan is able to join him too."

Another wrote: “Glad they visited the Queen on their terms.”

Calling the news “awesome”, one woman on Twitter said: “I am so glad they were able to do this. He really needed to see his grandmother.”

Someone else mused: “I’m sure HM The Queen was really happy to see them both. Whatever has gone on they are grandmother and grandson and his wife. Let’s give them a break.”
