Why Prince Harry and Meghan's Visit To The Queen On Maundy Thursday Was So Significant

The Duke and Duchess’ press office confirmed the news of
their trip, with the royal couple stopping via Windsor to visit
Harry’s grandmother en route to The Hague in the Netherlands ahead of the
Invictus Games which they are attending.

Harry and Meghan visited the Queen on 14 April, which was
Maundy Thursday – a day in the Christian calendar that focuses on
forgiveness.

The pair were sighted at the traditional Maundy Thursday
service, in which the Prince of Wales stood in for her Majesty.

Given the various issues which have reportedly gone on
between the Sussexes and the royal family of late, it’s a poignant day for the
couple to have met with the monarch, as well as Harry’s father Prince Charles.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine,
told The Sun: “It is a wonderful opportunity to clear the air and
offer an olive branch. After everything that has gone on it must have taken a
lot for Harry and Meghan to go to Windsor. 

Also, Maundy Thursday is a very
special day for the Queen as it is about forgiveness. She is not one to hold
grudges and I think she would have happily welcomed them with open arms.”

The visit is the couple’s first joint trip to the United
Kingdom since they left their roles as working royals back in 2020. Harry had
been back in the country for the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip,
and the unveiling of a statue for his late mother, Princess Diana.

Harry has been wanting to visit his home country with his
wife and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, but he and his family are
“unable to return” because it is too dangerous, his legal
representative has said.
