Prince Harry left the Queen’s Jubilee “very depressed” at the royal life he has given up, a royal commentator has claimed.
Before his acrimonious UK exit with his wife Meghan Markle, Harry had been a key member of the royal institution, forming the so-called Fab Four with his brother Prince William, Kate Middleton and Meghan.
As a young man, the prince had forged a promising career in the UK military, serving on the front line in Afghanistan and rising to the rank of Captain before he was forced to pull out of action after his identity was leaked.
After Harry announced his departure from the Royal Family, he was stripped of his separate honorary military titles, and royal commentator Hugo Vickers has claimed that the Queen’s Jubilee may have caused the Duke of Sussex to miss his former life.
“Imagine if he’d gone to the pageant, he’s given up being Captain General of the Royal Marines, the Royal Marines are out in force,” he observed.
“I think he must have gone back very depressed at what he’s given up.”
Despite this, Hugo suggested that the family had done well to avoid airing any alleged grievances in public.
“I think that everyone behaved very well in public and it makes it easier to behave well in private,” he said.
Although Harry and Meghan appeared in public for a thanksgiving service during the Jubilee weekend, it is unclear how many private meetings took place between the Sussexes and members of the Firm.
While the couple were not present on the Buckingham Palace balcony, they were spotted behind the scenes playfully interacting with young relatives.
But, there has been no confirmation of whether Harry was reunited with William, after the pair reportedly clashed over his royal exit and subsequent snipes at the royals in the infamous Oprah Winfrey interview.
This comes after another royal commentator claimed that Meghan and Harry are ready to turn their backs on the UK for good, after the Cambridges allegedly decided against attending a birthday celebration for their daughter Lilibet, held at their royal residence Frogmore Cottage.
