Prince Harry 'depressed' after Platinum Jubilee celebrations: 'Fuming'

A royal expert has claimed that Prince Harry would have been feeling "depressed" after leaving the UK and the Platinum Jubilee celebrations last week.

Another claims that Harry and wife Meghan Markle left the celebrations early and missed the Platinum Jubilee concert and Pageant because they weren't centre-stage.

According to The Sun, Vanity Fair's Kate Nicholl said of the pair's early exit, "I honestly think it’s because they knew that 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 as they did not have centre stage seats."

Meanwhile historian Hugo Vickers added, "Harry has given up being Captain of the Royal Marines, who were out in force. I think he must have gone home feeling very depressed for what he has given up."


Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe added, "Those four days will haunt Prince Harry for the rest of his life. They were relegated to sitting behind the Duke of Gloucester [at the Thanksgiving service]."

"They didn't take part in any way, shape or form visibly at the Trooping of the Colour. Harry will be fuming about the way he and his family were treated - if it was Prince William and the Royal Family who said, 'you’re not coming to the royal box', whilst other minor non-working Royals were at those events."

Harry wants an apology from the royal family

It comes after The Sun reported last week that Angela Levin, who spent a year with Harry while writing his biography, claimed the royal is "absolutely furious" over the way he was treated during the Jubilee.

"I think he would have been very, very upset that he was largely ignored. He still feels he's owed an apology," she explained, adding that she believed it was Harry that needed to apologise for saying Prince Charles and Prince William are trapped and that he'd been cut off by his father.

"You can't just go around being rude about people and expecting them to open their hearts to you again."

She added that Harry didn't take into account that his brother and his family might be busy during the weekend of the Jubilee and wouldn't have time to catch up.

Harry and Meghan threw their daughter Lilibet a first birthday party on the Saturday, but didn't check to see if the Cambridges might be busy that day and were reportedly upset they didn't attend.

"However, they didn't take the trouble of finding out the Cambridges would be in Wales on the morning, and coming back to get ready for the Jubilee concert in the afternoon, so they couldn't go."

When the Sussexes attended their only Jubilee event, the service of thanksgiving, they didn't speak to William or Kate or even look at each other.
