Prince Harry arrived back in the US looking glum late Sunday after taking off from his grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee before a private jet came to a close.
Harry – who was booed alongside wife Meghan Markle during his only official appearance in his rare UK trip – looked notably somber as he was photographed arriving back in his new home in California’s swanky Santa Barbara.
He had left his old home in the UK, Frogmore Cottage, in time to jet out to Farnborough Airport at 1:30 pm, according to the Sun – meaning before his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, made her final appearance marking the celebrations at her historic 70-year reign.
“There was no fanfare, they just went,” an insider told the Sun of the Trip that was Harry’s daughter, Lilibet, in the UK for the first time.
“They didn’t stick around for the Platinum Jubilee pageant,” the insider said.
Their private jet was estimated to cost about $ 200,000, according to the Sun, which stressed it was not clear who paid for it.
As Prince Harry was traveling, his grandmother appeared on the balcony of the Buckingham Palace along with his eldest son, Prince Charles, 73, and his wife, Camilla – as well as Harry’s brother, Prince William, 39, his wife, Catherine, 40. and their three young kids.
It was seen by royal watchers as a clear show of the future of the monarchy, with Harry taking no place after his shocking exit in 2020.
During his short trip, Harry was kept behind the scenes. He was booed during his one official appearance at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday, where he was also kept notably far apart from senior royals, including his once-close brother.
Harry and Meghan turned down the snack and drinks with family members after the service, the UK paper said.
Their kids, Archie and Lilibet, were not seen in public at all.
However, some younger royals – not including William’s kids – attended a low-key garden party to celebrate Lilibet’s first birthday, the Sun said.
