Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth, Visit to Europe
"I've Made Certain She's Safe," says Prince Harry after meeting Queen Elizabeth

When Prince Harry met Queen Elizabeth during a rare visit to Europe last week, he said he made sure she had the “right people around her” and was “protected.” Harry and Meghan met the queen at Windsor Castle on their first visit to the country since leaving the royal service in March 2020, and after the couple shocked the royal family with an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey last year.

“It was great to be with her,” Harry said during an interview with a co-anchor of Today, NBC’s morning show, given during the Invictus Games in The Hague.

“I’m just making sure she’s safe and has the right people around her,” he explained.
“You know, home-home for me right now is…for the time being, in the United States.”

Harry and Meghan live in California with their two young children. Harry returned to the United Kingdom for his grandfather’s funeral a year ago, but he did not attend a recent ceremony due to a security dispute with the government.

The queen, who turns 96 on Thursday, has largely remained out of the public eye since spending a night in hospital in October for an undefined ailment and being ordered to rest by doctors.

While continuing to meet with diplomats and officials online, she has missed several major events, including the Commemoration Sunday gathering and Easter service.

“It was just great to see her,” he said. “She’s in great shape.

“She always has a great sense of humour when it comes to me.”
