Prince Harry says Queen in ‘great form’ as Duke opens about meeting with Her Majesty


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid the Queen a visit for the first time in two years while on their way to the Invictus Games in the Netherlands. They had not been in the UK together since they quit as senior working royals in 2020.

The Duke of Sussex has said he and his wife had tea with the Queen and that she was in “great form” during their meeting.

Prince Harry spoke during an interview with a primetime US television host as relations between him and the Royal Family appear to have improved.

Harry, 37, spoke to Hoda Kotb, the co-anchor of Today, NBC’s morning programme, from the Invictus Games in the Netherlands.

It will be broadcast later today.

In a preview of the interview, the Prince was shown being asked how it felt to be back with his grandmother.

He said: “It was great, it was just so nice to see her, she was on great form.

“She’s always got a great sense of humour with me and I’m just making sure she’s protected and she’s got the right people around her.”

He added: “It was really nice to catch up with her.”
