Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting in some quality time with Queen Elizabeth while they’re back in the U.K. this week.

The monarch, 93, invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to join her for church service in Windsor on Sunday morning.

“It was a really sweet gesture that the Queen asked them to church,” a source tells PEOPLE. “It’s telling in the sense that these two are still her family. And as a family, they all love each other.”

Meghan wore a fascinator-style headpiece and striking emerald earrings, while Harry wore a suit and tie. The Queen arrived in a light blue ensemble with a matching hat.

The move echoes the Queen’s rare and emotional statement earlier this year in which she said Meghan, Harry and her great-grandson Archie “will always be much loved members of my family,” following the announcement that Harry and Meghan are stepping down as senior working royals.

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family,” the monarch said. “I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life. I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family. It is my whole family’s hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life.”
