Prince Harry ‘must have gone home feeling very depressed for what he’s given up’ after he and Meghan Markle decided not to be visible at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations because ‘they had no seats on the central stage ‘, claim royal experts.
The Duke, 37, and the Duchess of Sussex, 40, missed both the Platinum Jubilee Party and Pageant – as well as the Epsom Derby during the four-day festivities.
They only went public once, despite flying over from the US with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
The pair did not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony during Trooping the Color and were also seemingly relegated to the second row during the Thanksgiving service.
Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat that the pair weren’t at other celebrations because “they didn’t have seats in the middle of the stage.”
Meanwhile, historian Hugo Vickers added: ‘Harry has resigned as captain of the Royal Marines, which were in force. I think he went home very depressed because of what he gave up.’

Katie said ‘I really think it is’ [because]… they knew they wouldn’t be in that front row.
‘And why did they leave the royal family? They left because they weren’t in the front row. I believe that’s why they weren’t at the other celebrations because they didn’t have seats on the central stage.’
Elsewhere, royal biographer and journalist Duncan Larcombe said the platinum anniversary celebrations will haunt Prince Harry for the rest of his life as he and his family were relegated to minor roles and decided not to participate in some events.
He said, “Those four days will haunt Prince Harry for the rest of his life. She [The Duke and Duchess of Sussex] were banned from sitting behind the Duke of Gloucester [at the Thanksgiving service].

Discussing key images from the celebration, Katie told the program: “If you take away one image from the weekend, it has to be [the one of the Queen and her three heirs standing on the Buckingham Palace balcony] (shown)
“They did not participate in any way, shape or form visibly in the Trooping of the Colour… [Harry] will be furious at the way he and his family were treated – if it was Prince William and the royal family who said ‘you don’t come to the royal box’ when other underage non-working royals were at those events.”

‘An anniversary is not only a moment to look back on 70 years, but also to look ahead to the future. The Queen’s message is very clear: this is the future and for the first time in history we have four generations of royalty.
“It’s extraordinary. It is also deliberately designed. If you look at the order of these, Camilla steps aside, while Kate takes the two youngest children and leaves the Queen with her three heirs.”
It comes after biographer Angela Levin, who spent a year with Harry, claimed the prince likely feels he “owes an apology” and was “largely ignored” during the four-day celebration.

She added that the Duke of Sussex is reportedly “absolutely furious” at the situation.
According to Ms Levin, it was clear that Harry was not happy when he attended Thanksgiving service on Friday at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.
She said The sun“What really struck me that day was Harry’s anger – he’s wearing his emotions on his face and he looked absolutely furious.
“I think it’s actually quite interesting – he may have felt a lot of things. I don’t know if he had a wave of feeling about what he’d given up.’
Ms Levin added: ‘I think he would have been very, very angry that he was largely ignored. He still feels he owes an apology.”
However, the royal expert said Harry is “the one who should apologise.”
She also claimed that Harry and Meghan had not checked Prince William and Kate Middleton’s schedule before inviting them to a birthday party for Lilibet at Frogmore Cottage.
At the time, Kate and William were in Wales with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
