Prince Harry to visit his grandmother the Queen as soon as next week?

The Duke has previously stated that he is “unable to return home” due to the risk involved.
Prince Harry’s most recent visit to England was in July for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s memorial statue, and it’s been nearly a year since he last visited the country. But later this week, when he attends the Invictus Games in The Hague, The Netherlands, he will be closer to the UK than he has ever been.

Royal watchers wonder if Harry will take advantage of the opportunity to fly from The Netherlands to the United Kingdom – a one-hour flight – after the tournament is over to see his grandmother, the Queen.

Harry has wanted to visit his homeland with his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, but his legal representative has stated that he and his family are “unable to return” because it is too dangerous.

Despite offering to pay for it himself, the Duke is bringing a claim against the Home Office after being told he would no longer be given the same level of personal protective security when visiting from the United States. Because of the lack of security, Harry was unable to attend his grandfather Prince Philip’s thanksgiving service in March, though his spokesperson stated that Harry hopes to visit the Queen soon.

While he’s on this side of the Atlantic, he might decide to pay a quiet visit to Windsor to see his grandmother. Her Majesty’s birthday is April 21st, and the Invictus Games end the next day, so he could join her for some belated birthday celebrations.

Meghan, Harry’s wife, will accompany him to the Netherlands for the first few days of the Games, which begin on Saturday. It’s unclear if the couple will bring their two children, Archie, who will turn three in May, and Lilibet, who will turn one in June.

The Invictus Games were founded by the Duke in 2014 to aid the rehabilitation of injured or sick military personnel and veterans from around the world by providing them with the opportunity to compete in sporting events similar to the Paralympics.

The Invictus Games Foundation, of which Harry is a founding patron, announced on Tuesday that it will collaborate with BetterUp, a professional coaching and mental health firm where Harry serves as the chief impact officer. To assist members of the Invictus community, BetterUp will provide one-on-one coaching and individualized assessments.

“At its core, the Invictus Games are about empowering every single person on the planet,” Harry explained. “It’s a worldwide display of tenacity, determination, and camaraderie that we can all learn from.

“BetterUp, the mental fitness platform, is the perfect new partner for the Invictus Games Foundation. The mind is like a muscle: it must be honed, trained, rehabbed, and coached just like any other muscle. The men and women with whom I served are aware of this, as is the Invictus community, and now the rest of the world.

“It’s an honor to bring BetterUp’s work to Invictus, and I’m looking forward to expanding the support systems that service members and veterans rely on to accomplish incredible feats.”

    If you decide to go to visit your grandmother, Harry, be safe and have a wonderful visit. However, I’d much rather finally meet you and our daughter. Even though, I know that she’s in excellent hands, I think that I’ve missed too much of her life, already. It’s time that she be reunited with the woman whose genes she carries and who she was taken from.
