The Queen gives Prince Harry new medal following his return to the UK

On his return to the UK, the Queen presented Prince Harry with a medal in honor of her Platinum Jubilee.

The medals, which were funded privately and distributed to both working and non-working members of the royal family, are commemorative of the monarch’s incredible 70-year reign.

The gold medals are decorated with the Queen’s profile, her regnal name, Elizabeth II, and the Latin inscription Dei Gratia Regina, which translates to “By the Grace of God, Queen.”

It was seen on Friday with three other medals on Harry’s person.

Princess Beatrice’s husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Eugenie’s husband, Jack Brooksbank, Princess Margaret’s son, the Earl of Snowdon, and Prince Michael of Kent’s son, Lord Frederick Windsor, are among those who will receive the medal.

On Wednesday, Harry and Meghan Markle flew from the United States to London ahead of the Queen’s birthday celebrations. They were photographed inside the Major General’s Office the next day, watching Trooping the Colour with other non-working royals, including Zara Phillips and Peter Phillips’ children, with whom they both appeared to have a sweet bond.

The couple, along with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, attended the Queen’s thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday.

They were not, however, present at a Guildhall reception following the event.

Since stepping down as senior working members of the royal family in early 2020, the couple has kept a low profile and kept their children out of the spotlight.

They flew to the UK with their two children, Archie, three, and Lili, who will turn one on Saturday, and are expected to meet with the Queen privately and introduce her to their daughter.

The foursome is thought to be spending their time in the UK at Frogmore Cottage, Harry and Meghan’s Windsor home.

The home was where the couple spent their final months as working royals before moving to Canada and then America, and it was recently reported that the lease had been extended on a rolling 12-month basis.
