Talk about a huge international snub. Even though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opted not to attend Prince Philip’s memorial service in London back in March due to security concerns, it looks like they’ll be able to make it to The Netherlands for the Invictus Games instead. There’s no doubt that a whole lot of royal critics are sure going to have to say a lot about this! Here’s what you need to know.
Meghan Markle Will Reportedly Travel To The Netherlands For The Invictus Games
According to the Daily Mirror, the Duchess of Sussex will accompany her husband to Holland next week. It will be her first international trip since quitting the royal family back in March 2020. However, it’s expected that the couple will leave their two children, Archie and Lilibet, behind in California under the care of their trusted nannies, of course.
Meanwhile, one royal expert says he just doesn’t understand why Harry would opt to travel to Holland and not back home to the UK. Speaking to the Daily Mail in an new interview, Ken Wharfe just doesn’t understand why Harry has opted to not return home but instead is traveling to The Netherlands this month.
Wharge put it this way, “I’m baffled about why Harry thinks he would be safer in the Netherlands than in the UK. He would have traveled to his grandfather’s memorial service with his brother or father and received protection from the Met. It’s not like he would have been turning up at Westminster Abbey on a bike. The Dutch police will be doing their own security assessments and liaising with Harry’s private security. But my view it is more of a risk to go to Holland to support a charity with a military link than coming to London last week.”

What’s more, royal expert Ingrid Seward, who often speaks out on all things royal, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s isolation from the monarchy in California, believes that the couple’s silence speaks “volumes.” She also believes that Harry and Meghan’s decision to not attend the service because they were afraid that they would overshadow it is not correct.
