‘s Platinum Jubilee Tour Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was cut short. On Sunday, the couple returned to California with their son Archie, 3, and daughter, LiIbet1. The family reportedly took a private plane from Farnborough Airport and missed the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, which ended Queen Elizabeth II’s Four Day Celebrations.
The latest parade was seen from the balcony of Buckingham Palace by relatives of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they traveled back to the United States. While the event celebrated the 96-year-old monarch’s record 70 years of service, her great-grandson Prince Louis stole the show with his funny facial expressions and antics. At the Trooping the Color procession last Thursday, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 4-year-old son similarly captivated the anniversary spectators with his balcony antics.
However, both Harry, 37, and Markle, 40, were present at Trooping the Colour, although they did not appear on the balcony due to their withdrawal from royal responsibilities in February 2021. “After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that the traditional Trooping the Color balcony appearance…will be limited to Her Majesty and the members of the Royal Family who are currently performing official public duties on behalf of the Queen,” a spokesman explained in a statement ahead of the celebration, according to Page Six.
Interestingly, the duo attended the National Thanksgiving Service the following day, making news for their seats across the aisle from William, 39, and Middleton, 40, during the brothers’ feud. Spectators chased Harry and Markle out as they left the ceremony at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday.
