Harry wore a navy suit and Meghan wore an all-white suit with a white handbag. At one point Meghan waved towards the press pen, and as they greeted people the couple placed their hands on each others’ backs.


The pair arrived in the Netherlands on Friday

Meghan's stunning suit is by Italian fashion house Valentino and available to shop at Matches Fashion, but it's selling out fast.

Cut from wool crepe, the trousers feature smart pintucked creases down the wide legs, while the jacket is tailored with sharp notch lapels and cinches in at the waist for a classic silhouette.

Their arrival comes after they made a surprise appearance in the UK, paying a secret visit to the Queen at Windsor Castle, where they also met with Harry's father, Prince Charles.


Harry was in great spirits

The Duke and Duchess' press office confirmed the news, with a spokesperson revealing that the visit took place as the pair headed to the Hague in the Netherlands ahead of the Invictus Games.

It was the pair's first joint visit to the United Kingdom since they quit as working royals back in 2020. Harry had been back in the country for the funeral of his grandfather, and the unveiling of a statue for his late mother, Princess Diana.

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

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.
