Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Platinum Jubilee trip came to an end.
The couple returned to their home in California with their son, Archie, 3, and their daughter, LiIlibet, 1, on Sunday.
The family reportedly flew out of Farnborough Airport in England on a private jet at 1:30 p.m., missing the Platinum Jubilee Pageant that closed out Queen Elizabeth II’s four-day festivities. Prince Harry appeared concerned while returning to his home by car. After all, the Jubilee was a trip back to his past, and surely brought back unhappy memories of his life as a member of the royal family.
As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew back to the United States, their family members watched the parade from the Buckingham Palace balcony.
While the event honored the 96-year-old monarch’s unprecedented 70 years of service, her great-grandson Prince Louis stole the show with his funny faces and antics.
“After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that this year’s traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance … will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the royal family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen,” a spokesperson explained in a statement ahead of the celebration.
Harry and Markle instead watched from the Major General’s Office inside the palace.
The following day, the pair attended the National Service of Thanksgiving, making headlines for their seats across the aisle from William, 39, and Middleton, 40, amid the brothers’ feud.
Harry and Markle were booed by onlookers while leaving the service at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday.
The duo reportedly went on to host a low-key birthday party for their daughter on Saturday.
