BAZAAR reports that the Duke of Sussex left Westminster Abbey and London very soon after his father was crowned, and is returning to his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie and Lilibet. The coronation happened to coincide with Archie’s fourth birthday, and the Duke clearly desires to be back together with his family for the remainder of the weekend.
The coronation was attended by a lot of the British royal family, including Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton. Harry was seated two rows behind the Prince and Princess of Wales, beside his cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice and their husbands, Jack Brooksbank and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Unlike his brother, Harry was wearing an easy suit. After stepping back as a working member of the royal family, Harry lost his honorary military titles and is not any longer allowed to wear a uniform for formal occasions. Their was one exception in 2022 for the vigil of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
