Queen Elizabeth Invites Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to Church Amid Royal Exit

March 8, 2020

No hard feelings.

As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s days as senior members of the royal family wind down, the pair are staying in the good graces of Queen Elizabeth.

With their strong faith in common, Her Majesty invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to a church service in Windsor on Sunday.

“It was a really sweet gesture that the Queen asked them to church,” a source told People. “It’s telling in the sense that these two are still her family. And as a family, they all love each other.”

The royal outing comes one day after the monarch gave a faint nod to Meghan and Harry in a speech touting “diversity.”

In support of Commonwealth Day on Monday, the Queen spoke of the impact of the royal family.

“On Commonwealth occasions, it is always inspiring to be reminded of the diversity of the people and countries that make up our worldwide family,” read the 93-year-old’s message.

“Such a blend of traditions serves to make us stronger, individually and collectively, by providing the ingredients needed for social, political and economic resilience.”

Meghan and Harry are finishing up their final round of royal engagements before officially stepping down on March 31st.

On Saturday night, the Duke and Duchess celebrated the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The annual event raises money for the Royal Marines charity and saw the couple decked out in matching red ensembles.

In what could be their last royal engagement, Harry and Meghan will join Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton for the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Monday.

The Duke and Duchess are then set to return to Canada, where they have been attempting to keep a low profile since first making their bombshell announcement detailing their plans to step down from their royal duties.
