Prince Harry is back in the US with his pregnant wife Meghan Markle. According to The Mirror, he did not stay in the UK for the 95th birthday of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
According to sources, the Duke of Sussex left on an American Airlines flight. On Wednesday, April 21, his car was seen near the mansion in Montecito, where he lives with his wife and son Archie Harrison. Prince Harry is expected to be quarantined for 10 days after his arrival.
Prince Harry flew to the UK for the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, and refused to stay for Queen Elizabeth II's birthday, which she celebrates on April 21. It is expected that she will celebrate her 95th birthday at Windsor Castle in the circle of her closest friends. Since the queen is in mourning for her deceased husband, the traditional blank salvo from the cannons of the First World War in her honor was canceled. Most likely, in the social networks of Buckingham Palace, contrary to tradition, there will be no festive pictures of the queen.
Elizabeth II traditionally does not widely celebrate her birthday in April, as in the UK it is customary to celebrate the so-called official birthday of the monarch on the second Saturday in June. On this day, there is a solemn parade in honor of the Queen-the flag-carrying holiday.
In January, Prince Harry and his wife, who abdicated as senior members of the royal family in early 2020, received an invitation to the Queen's official birthday party on June 12. The Duke of Sussex was expected to be in the UK for at least a few weeks, as the unveiling of a monument to his mother Princess Diana will take place on July 1.
However, after that, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in March gave a scandalous interview to Oprah Winfrey, in which they accused an unnamed member of the royal family of racism and said that Meghan Markle was not allowed to use the help of a psychologist when suicidal thoughts appeared during pregnancy. After that, their relationship with the royal family deteriorated dramatically. It is reported that Prince Harry completely stopped communicating with his father Prince Charles, and Queen Elizabeth II took the side of her son in their conflict.
