Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may not be traveling to the U.K. anytime soon, but that doesn't mean they can't still squeeze in a royal family fix.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex — who moved to Montecito, Calif., after ditching their royal duties in 2020 — recently met up with Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, for a nice dinner in Santa Barbara.

The two couples appeared to be engaged in some lively conversation while they dined together at a restaurant over the weekend, according to the photos obtained by TMZ.

The sighting comes just a little over a week after Harry, 37, was spotted making a rare public appearance at the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 13, with Eugenie by his side. Meghan and Jack were both seemingly absent from the outing, as OK! learned.

Eugenie reportedly traveled from Windsor, England, to visit her cousin amid his ongoing feud with the rest of the royal family, as the 31-year-old is one of the only family members who is actively in touch with Harry and Meghan since they left their royal life.

A source previously claimed Eugenie has her cousin's back amid his ongoing rift with the royals and that she and her sister, Princess Beatrice, even support Harry's plan to write a memoir on his life behind palace walls.

"They believe Harry's outspoken remarks may have been triggered because previously his voice and opinions were rarely heard within the royal family," an insider dished, per Vanity Fair, adding that the two sisters believe Harry "is finally being listened to."

Meanwhile, Harry is still fighting to appeal the British government's rejection of his bid to pay for police security while visiting his homeland, as the dad-of-two claimed he did not feel safe bringing his children over the pond without sufficient protection.

As OK! reported, Harry will likely miss his grandfather Prince Phillip's memorial service next month as a result of the situation. "They don't think it's likely that he'll come back because it would undermine his position that it's too much of a threat," a source stated.

It's still unclear whether Harry will travel to the U.K. with Meghan and their two little ones, Archie and Lilibet, for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June given the ongoing security drama. Even though the royals have yet to meet the couple's daughter in person, the doting dad refuses to bring his kids to his home country unless they are safe.

A verdict on Harry's security appeal case has not yet been reached.
