The Duke of Sussex’s return to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee must have been the “hardest of homecomings” because he was “reduced to little more than a spectator” at the momentous occasion, according to a royal expert.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended the Trooping celebrations on Thursday (June 2), but stayed out of the limelight inside the Duke of Wellington's former office with more than 30 members of the family, reports the Express.

Only working members of the royal family appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the RAF flypast with the Queen.

At one point, Harry could be seen chatting to the Duke of Kent and interacting with the family’s children. Meghan also shared an adorable moment pulling faces with Peter Phillips' daughters Isla and Savannah and Mike and Zara Tindall's eldest child, Mia.

Author Richard Kay has suggested this would have been hard to take for Prince Harry, and said: “For Harry, this must be the hardest of homecomings, because he has been reduced to little more than a spectator.

“Unable to appear in military uniform and uninvited onto the Buckingham Palace balcony, he might have preferred the obscurity of being among the cousins who reside far down the royal line of succession.

“The tragedy is that before Meghan came along, Harry was the very essence of a popular 21st-century prince."

The royals were again out in force for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations yesterday (June 3) in the Queen's absence at a service of thanksgiving.

Prince Charles represented his mother after the 96-year-old monarch pulled out of the occasion at St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Tributes were paid to the Queen's "70 years of faithful and dedicated service" as 2,000 people including Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Cabinet ministers, Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, and former prime ministers filled the historic church.
