Prins Harry tog onsdag til havefest, hvor farmor dronning Elizabeth var værtinde.
Det er et årligt tilbagevendende arrangement, når haven ved Buckingham Palace bliver åbnet op for særligt indbudte gæster til dronning Elizabeths havefest.
Onsdag var omkring 8000 gæster til havefest, hvor dronningen også havde prins Harry ved sin side, skriver Mirror.
Nogle af gæsterne kunne have håbet at se den nybagte mor – og måske endda prins Archie – nu hvor prins Harry dukkede op. Men det var ikke tilfældet.
Ifølge parrets Instagramprofil Sussex Royal var det altså kun prinsen, der var til stede.

Today The Duke of Sussex attended a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace alongside Her Majesty The Queen and other Members of The Royal Family. The Queen hosts Garden Parties as a means of recognizing guests for the good work they are doing in their communities, a tradition steeped in history and dating back to the 1860s during Queen Victoria’s reign. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended their first official Garden Party as a couple last May at Buckingham Palace just days after their wedding, in celebration of The Prince of Wales’ charity work, patronages and military affiliations. Today, The Duke of Sussex met with several guests including those that he and The Duchess extended a personal invitation to based on their extensive work in the community. His Royal Highness met with a representative of @africanparksnetwork (of which he is President), a mental health consultant for @weareinvictusgames and countless others who are leading by example with high impact cause driven work. The Duke also greeted several representatives of The Duchess’ patronages on her behalf, as she is on maternity leave and was unable to attend. These include members from @themayhew @thenationaltheatre and @smartworkscharity as well as The Association of Commonwealth Universities. Amongst the 8,000 people attending today were Members of the Armed Services, Ambassadors as well as those who have made a positive impact through the arts, charity work and volunteering. Thank you to volunteers, staff and all of those who dedicate their time and energy to working towards the collective good. We appreciate all that you do 👏
Med til festen var også prins Harrys kusiner prinsesse Eugenie og prinsesse Beatrice.
På trods af at vejret var regnfuldt ved havefesten, så var slotshaven fuld af mennesker. Gæsterne ved havefesten er personer, der har udmærket sig ved at gøre noget særligt for fællesskabet.
Prins Harry og Meghan havde blandt andet personligt inviteret repræsentanter fra African Parks Network og en konsulent i mentalt helbred fra Invictus Games blandt mange.
