Prince Harry returns to California, skipping Queen’s birthday

Prince Harry is back in sunny California, having crossed the pond to attend the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Phillip on Saturday.

The 36-year-old flew to Los Angeles on an American Airlines flight that arrived Tuesday afternoon and was driven to his home in Montecito, Calif., According to the Daily Mail.

Harry’s return to the United States means he will not be there to celebrate his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II’s 95th birthday on Wednesday, as he had envisioned.

The “conflicting” prince felt it was more important to return home to his pregnant wife Meghan Markle and toddler, according to the article.

Harry will now undergo a 10-day quarantine recommended for international travelers by the CDC, the Mail reports.

The trip to England was Harry’s first return to his homeland in over a year, and he received a frosty reception and was ignored by senior leaders, including his father and future king, Prince Charles.

The royal repercussions came after the monarch told Oprah he felt trapped by her family, which he accused of being biased against his biracial wife and son Archie.
