Speaking on ITV Royal Rota podcast, she said "While Frogmore is laying empty at the moment, Harry said himself that they would have come over had it not been for Covid, and they would have been using it.

"Presumably he is coming over to Europe for next year's Invictus Games. They're still going ahead in the Hague in the Netherlands."
