“She’s in top form”: Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her birthday in a small circle

“It was great to be with her. It was just nice to see her. And she’s in top form.” That’s what Prince Harry (37) said after he and his wife Meghan (40) welcomed his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II a few days ago .
The meeting took place at Windsor Castle and had not been announced beforehand – the couple were staying in The Hague last weekend where the Harry-initiated “Invictus Games” were taking place. His grandmother, who celebrates her 96th birthday on Thursday April 21, has had to slow down lately. In the meantime, the monarch gave audiences via video conference. She wants to spend today at her country estate in Sandringham – privately and in a small circle.
The Queen’s birthday is traditionally not celebrated until June: with the “Trooping the Color” parade in London.

This year is also the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s throne. Harry and Meghan, who live in the United States with their children, are also said to have received an invitation to the celebrations. The young family has settled in well in Santa Barbara with their children Archie (2) and Lilibet (10 months) and did not come to the memorial service for Prince Philip, who died a year ago.
So the question for England and the rest of the world remains: will Harry arrive? In any case, it is questionable whether he would get police protection for this – the Ministry of the Interior denies him that.
