On Sunday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle returned to California with their son, Archie, 3, and daughter, Lilibet, 1, to conclude their Platinum Jubilee tour.
The family of four reportedly took a private jet out of Farnborough Airport in England at 1:30 p.m., missing the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, which concluded Queen Elizabeth II’s four-day celebrations.

The parade was watched from the Buckingham Palace balcony by family members of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they flew back to the United States.
While the event celebrated the 96-year-old monarch’s unprecedented 70 years of service, her great-grandson Prince Louis stole the show with his amusing facial expressions and antics.
During the Trooping the Colour parade last Thursday, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 4-year-old son similarly entertained Jubilee crowds with his balcony antics.
Prince Harry, 37, and Markle Markle, 40, both attended Trooping the Colour, though neither appeared on the balcony due to their resignation from royal duties in February 2021.
“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 said.
But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex instead watched from the Major General’s Office inside the palace.
During the festivities, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle only made one public appearance, attending the National Thanksgiving Service.
Onlookers booed Harry and Markle as they exited the service at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday. On Saturday, the couple reportedly hosted a low-key birthday party for their daughter.

Louis and his siblings, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, were absent from the weekend event due to their parents’ official visit to Wales.
