this unexpected humiliation in the Netherlands, ouch, it hurts

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the decision to go to that Invictus Games takes place in the Netherlands. Her reception did not quite live up to her expectations. On their trip to our Dutch neighbors they even had to deal with some problems.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not receive a royal welcome in the Netherlands

That Invictus Games are a very important event for Prince Harry because he is the one who created this competition. For information, this is an international sporting event reserved for war wounded. In order to participate, these ex-servicemen must belong to the “WIS Community” (“Wounded, Injured and Sick Personnel Service”). They are usually ill, injured, disabled, or victims of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

We remember Prince Harry even including Queen Elizabeth II in a video to promote the games. But those were the good old days before the Megxit. In any case, this step and this rapprochement with England provide a lot to talk about. Since her decision to leave the royal family, Meghan Markle has never returned to the UK. Prince Harry returned twice last year in 2021, for the funeral of Prince Philip and for the unveiling of the statue honoring his mother, Lady Diana.

Anyway z invictus Games, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made an exception. In fact, it was during this event that the couple formalized their love story before getting married a few months later. We didn’t imagine then the scandal and catastrophe they would cause. What is certain is that since their exile in the USA, the former royal couple no longer enjoy all the advantages they had in the past. According to the magazine The sunThe King of the Netherlands, Willem-Alexander, did not want to speak to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Prince Harry and his wife were not introduced

In fact, Prince Harry and his wife have not been able to meet him privately. In addition, they had no opportunity to sleep in the royal palace. The king did not offer them hospitality, which usually happens. According to the daily journalist The sunNothing was done to highlight the former royal couple. This situation is rather humiliating for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle faced another big problem. In fact, it’s about their safety. The guards accompanying the couple could not be armed upon their arrival in the Netherlands. Archie and Lilibet Diana’s parents have even filed a complaint against the Home Office because they no longer have the same level of personal protection as other members of royal families, particularly when traveling and visiting. For this reason, too, they no longer go to England because they fear for their safety. Fortunately, thanks to the Dutch police, they still had full protection. So the couple was reassured during the Invictus Games.

A planned return to England?

Queen Elizabeth II will soon be celebrating her 95th birthday. Indeed, it will blow out its candles next week on Thursday, April 21st. Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit? It has been about a year since he set foot in his former native land. In any case, the English and the media are just waiting for it, and if so, they will closely follow their arrival.
