Prince Harry Returns to California After a Family-Focused U.K. Visit to Remember Prince Philip

Prince Harry has returned to the United States. He took a plane this Tuesday, April 20, the day before the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. A very sad birthday this year.

Elizabeth II is 95 years old this Wednesday, April 21. In 74 years, it is the first birthday she will spend without Prince Philip at her side. Because of the coronavirus and the period of mourning, the festivities of the day have been cancelled. Buckingham did not even post a new photo of the queen on social networks. However, a message of thanks was published. There will be no cannon fire.

There will be no big family dinner. And there will not be Prince Harry either. The latter returned Tuesday to Meghan Markle and Archie in the United States. But if he is not present for the birthday of his grandmother, he was still able to see her in private during his stay in England.

According to our sources, Prince Harry was able to see Queen Elizabeth II in private at least twice in nine days. This was the first time the two of them saw each other in person and spoke since the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview. It is not known what exactly was discussed, but certainly not the differences that oppose them lately. This family reunion was only to honor the memory of Prince Philip and share the pain of grief. “The family put these issues aside to focus on what really mattered,” explained a person close to the Duke of Sussex.

The Trooping The Color parade is cancelled

Prince Harry will also not be present for the “second” birthday of the queen. And for good reason, Meghan will be about to give birth to their baby girl. As tradition dictates, the monarch will celebrate her birthday a second time on the second Saturday of June. It will be on June 12. That is two days after what should have been the 100th birthday of Prince Philip. Buckingham Palace had already announced in March that the big parade Trooping The Color was cancelled because of the coronavirus. A ceremony in the gardens of Windsor Castle was still possible. But in the meantime, the Queen’s husband has died.
