It’s been a whirlwind few months for the royal family, with Prince Andrew being forced to step down from royal duties and then Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announcing they were quitting their roles as senior royals. 

And now, the Duchess of Sussex has come face-to-face with the Queen, in what is believed to be their first meeting since the couple dropped their ‘Megxit’ bombshell in January.

Meghan Markle was pictured, alongside her husband, driving from her Frogmore Cottage home to The Royal Chapel at Windsor, after being invited to church by the Queen. 

“It was a really sweet gesture that the Queen asked them to church,” a source told People magazine.

“It’s telling in the sense that these two are still her family. And as a family, they all love each other.”

While this may be Megan’s first time to be acquainted with the Queen since deciding to up sticks and move to Canada, Prince Harry has met with his grandmother numerous times since then.

Last Sunday, Prince Harry held a four-hour meeting with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, during which she reportedly told him the door is always open if he and his spouse change their minds.

The 93-year-old monarch is believed to have ended the talk by saying: "You are much loved and will always be welcomed back."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been thrilling royal fans on their ‘farewell tour’ over the past few days. 

The couple will make their final appearance as working members of the royal family on Monday alongside the rest of the Windsors, when they will attend the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.
