The Duke and Duchess enjoyed a sun-soaked getaway following the Invictus Games…

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s trip to visit Princess Eugenie in Portugal

Last week, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took a covert trip to Portugal to see Princess Eugenie, the Duke’s cousin.

The two were seen in Melides, Aljento, about 80 miles from Lisbon, the nation’s capital. It should come as no surprise that the couple chose this location because it is adjacent to Princess Eugenie’s lavish Comporta home, shared with her devoted husband Jack Brooksbank.


The royal cousins have a close bond


Archie and Lilibet, Meghan and Harry’s two children, were not with them on their trip, as first reported by the Portuguese newspaper Nova Gente. After the Invictus Games, which took place in Dusseldorf, Germany, from September 9–16, the couple left for Portugal.

Since 2019, Eugenie, Jack, their infant Ernest, and their two-year-old son August have divided their time between Portugal and London. Working on a 300-home development project along the opulent Portuguese coastline for the CostaTerra Golf and Ocean Club, Jack and his business partner Mike Meldman have one of the opulent properties serving as a royal residence for a family of four.

The lavish setting would have been the ideal respite for the Duke and Duchess following their nonstop week in Germany, where they thoroughly enjoyed the Invictus Games. The two went to a range of sporting events during the week and had meetings with players and their families to hear their motivational tales.

The Duchess’s first official engagement after arriving in Dusseldorf on Tuesday, September 19, was to give a speech at the dinner for friends and family.

“I apologize for being a little late to the party,” she said. I just had to spend a little bit more time at home getting our kids settled in, getting milkshakes, dropping them off at school, because like so many of you, this is about family and friends and the community that Invictus and Fisher House had created.

She also disclosed her desire to take the younger royal children to the games when they are older. “We can’t wait to bring our kids along too so they can see just how awesome this is,” she continued.
