The Duke of Sussex and wife Meghan Markle will quit on March 31, moving to Canada to start a new life with their son Archie.

But one of the main things he wanted to do during his short return to the UK was to sit down with his grandmother to "clear the air" after the drama and upset of the past few weeks.

The Queen agreed, and the royal pair spent four hours talking during an "extraordinary fireside chat" at Windsor Castle on Sunday, the Sun reports.

The Monarch reportedly ended their conversation by telling Harry: "You are much loved and will always be welcomed back."

A source said: “The Queen had a lot to talk to Harry about and this was the ideal time for them to both say their piece.

“Sunday was the first time the Queen has had the chance to talk to Harry on his own and really find out what his plans are. It was a much more relaxed environment and they were both able to speak their mind.”

Harry reportedly walked from his Frogmore Cottage home over to the Castle over the weekend.

Meghan and Harry will officially step back on March 31, closing their Buckingham Palace office and getting rid of their team of loyal staff.

They have spent the past few weeks working out the details of Megxit, with many experts believing they will be disappointed by the outcome.

A number of strict restrictions have been put in place, including a ban on them using the word 'Royal' in their branding.

After the initial round of chats took place in January, the Queen released a highly unusual statement saying she was sad about their decision, but understood.

She wrote: "Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.

"My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family.

"Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.

"Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.

"It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.

"These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days."
