Prince Harry is set to open up about his and Meghan Markle’s secret visit to the Queen on US television programme, the Today Show.

Harry sat down with presenter Hoda Kotb at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands, where he shared details of the surprise trip to Windsor Castle last Thursday and also spoke about fatherhood and life in California with his wife and two children.

The American programme teased the interview ahead of its release tomorrow morning, posting to Twitter: “'Hoda Kotb sat down with Prince Harry to talk about the Invictus Game, his surprise visit with the Queen, and life with his wife Meghan Markle."

The interview comes a year since the Sussexes infamous interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey where damning allegations were made against the Royal Family.

As Meghan has already left the Invictus Games to reunite with children Archie, two, and 10-month-old Lilibet, it is unlikely she will appear in the primetime exclusive,

The secret visit came after Harry was absent from the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service in London last month.

Harry is bringing a claim against the Home Office after being told he would no longer be given the same degree of personal protective security when visiting from the US, despite offering to pay for it himself.

The Duke wants to bring his children to visit, but he and his family are “unable to return to his home” because it is too dangerous, his legal representative has said.

At the Invictus Games, Meghan and Harry have been escorted members of the Dutch royal protection unit and by their own security team which includes former US president Barack Obama’s bodyguard.

The couple have been given VVIP (very very important person) status for their stay.

Harry and Meghan spent Easter Sunday morning at the athletics track and were in the front row for the sitting volleyball as the first full day of competition began.

A camera crew filming for a Netflix documentary called Heart Of Invictus – a series from Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Productions following people competing at the event – has been seen close to the couple since they arrived at the games on Friday.

On both Saturday and Sunday, a drone could be seen hovering above events that the couple were at.

The pair signed a multimillion-pound deal with streaming giant Netflix in 2020.
