Prince Harry reportedly felt depressed heading back to California after realizing what he left behind and gave up during the trip back to the United Kingdom for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebration, a royal expert has claimed.

Historian Hugo Vickers believed that the Duke of Sussex would have been saddened about the situation. "Harry has given up being Captain of the Royal Marines, who were out in force," he said as reported by Vanity Fair. "I think he must have gone home feeling very depressed for what he has given up."

Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe also said, "Those four days will haunt Prince Harry for the rest of his life. They were relegated to sitting behind the Duke of Gloucester (at the Thanksgiving service). They didn't take part in any way, shape or form visibly at the Trooping of the Colour."

"Harry will be fuming about the way he and his family were treated - if it was Prince William and the Royal Family who said, 'you're not coming to the royal box', whilst other minor non-working Royals were at those events."

Harry and Meghan arrived in the UK together for the first time since 2020 for the Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebration despite the known rift with other members of the Royal Family. The couple made limited public appearances with claims that Harry and Meghan did not want to take the attention away from the Queen as the celebration marked her 70 years of service.

The couple were seen at the Trooping the Colour; however, they were not on the Buckingham Palace balcony, as it is said to be only reserved for the working royals. They also attended a thanksgiving service at St Paul's for the Queen. They missed the Platinum Jubilee concert and Jubilee Pageant as the pair traveled back to America an hour before the royals appeared for the closing of the Jubilee.

Vanity Fair's royal pundit, Kate Nicholl, claimed that the Sussexes went home early as both were unhappy about having a minor role in the celebrations. "I honestly think it's because they knew that they wouldn't be in that front row. And why did they leave the Royal Family? They left because they weren't in the front row. I believe that's why they weren't at the other celebrations as they did not have center stage seats."
