Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and their two young children were only in town for a few days, but a royal source said it was “wonderful to have them back in Britain”.
The family flew from their California home for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which marked her historic 70-year reign. Prince Charles and Camilla were “absolutely delighted” to see them, according to the royal source.
Harry and Meghan, you may recall, stepped down from official royal duties in January 2020.
The Duke then revealed that his bond with his father, Charles, and brother, William, had suffered since the somewhat acrimonious split. He told Oprah Winfrey in an interview last year that at one point the heir to the British throne stopped taking phone calls altogether.
But as the old saying goes, time heals all wounds and it looks like the relationship could be on the mend.
“He hadn’t met Lilibet, his granddaughter, and so meeting her for the first time was very emotional, a very wonderful thing,” the source said.
The royal source also told us it was a “very, very special” reunion for Charles and his grandson Archie.
While the visit was Charles’ first chance to meet his granddaughter, it was also possibly the Queen’s first chance to meet her namesake great-granddaughter.

The Queen and several senior royals traveled to Edinburgh for Holyrood Week – or Royal Week, as it’s also known – and it’s fair to say the monarch didn’t have it easy.
Clearly thrilled to be back in Scotland, she’s been out every day – much to the delight of royal watchers, who may have been nervous after she only attended two jubilee events in early June.
The week – held around the end of June and beginning of July each year – is an opportunity for the Sovereign to recognize Scottish culture, achievement and community. We’ve taken the best shots of the past five days. Looked:
