Meghan Markle and Prince Harry return to California after Queen's funeral, but will there be a royal peace?
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA: After participating in Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, the royal couple Meghan Markle and Prince Harry landed back in California. The pair participated in numerous charity events after the death of the Queen on Thursday, September 8. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex landed in Europe after the news broke, and Harry went to Scotland to be alongside his family.
They stayed in the United Kingdom till Monday, September 19, as the Queen was honored with a state funeral, and committal service, followed by her private burial. It was on September 10, when the royal pair joined Prince William and Kate Middleton at Windsor Castle to inspect tributes to the late Queen and royal fans.
As a royal source on Prince William inviting his brother and sister-in-law to join him and his wife said, “the outing was an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family."
The fab four had everyone’s attention since the brothers were last seen together in 2020. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's demeanor during the entire course of funeral was observed by a body language expert and author Judi James. She talked with Page Six, and said, “Throughout it all, Markle appeared to show her husband “silent support.” She added, “The best description of Meghan’s body language at the funeral was ‘understated.’ She seemed to offer a continuation of that silent support to her husband while sitting and walking with a look of dignity tinged with sadness.”
James also reflected on Harry’s body language, “Walking beside, but a large distance apart from his brother, his puckered brows and rapid blinking suggested the onset of tears”. She added, “When he watched the coffin being unloaded there was the sucking in of the lips, rocking from side to side and shoulder roll that he had performed before to suggest he was bracing himself emotionally.” Prince Harry had served previously for 10 years in the military but was said to have been stopped from wearing it until father King Charles intervened.
Harry paid his last respect and talked about her grandmother in a statement released on Archewell Website. “Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings — from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my commander-in-chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren.
“I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed,” Prince Harry wrote.
