However because the couple traveled to the Netherlands for the prince’s Invictus Video games (leaving their youngsters Archie and Lilibet at residence within the US), they will need to have felt protected sufficient for a fast cease. They apparently flew into Heathrow on Tuesday for a lowkey assembly with Queen Elizabeth. A spokesperson for the Sussexes informed Web page Six:

The dad and mom reportedly stayed in a single day at Frogmore Cottage, which was once their residence on the grounds of Windsor Fort. (Princess Eugenie and her household now reside there.) They have been noticed by guests for the Royal Maundy Service, a convention that takes place three days earlier than Easter at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.
An onlooker dished to The Solar:
“I couldn’t consider it once I noticed who it was. We waved they usually waved again. They seemed joyful and relaxed and waved to everybody on the bus. [Prince] Charles and the Queen have been at Windsor Fort on the similar time so that they will need to have met them each. It was fairly the sight. We knew we’d see Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall [Camilla Parker Bowles] on the ceremony however by no means believed we might stumble upon Harry and Meghan.”
