There was a state of emergency in London for days: the entire city celebrated the Queen’s 70th jubilee – Harry and Meghan were also there. It was their first public appearance since leaving England. That was almost two years ago. That’s why it was so eagerly awaited. But the English did not see much of the exit royals.
Summary of the visit: There is only one public appearance for all four days of festivities.
Short and painless – Harry and Meghan’s visit ended abruptly. On Sunday afternoon, the family traveled back to Santa Barbara, California, by private jet. They left the celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th jubilee before the final event – at which the Queen and her entourage appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

Is the palace blessing still crooked?
With the Megxit the year before last and related statements by Harry and Meghan, the Windsors’ family ties were put to the test. Despite the hardened fronts, the Royal dropouts had now decided to start the journey. The visit could therefore mean a first attempt at rapprochement. Queen Elizabeth II met her great-granddaughter Lilibet for the first time.
Now, according to the “Daily Mail”, the two left too early. It is not known whether displeasure with the developments of the past few days could have been a reason for the early departure. After all – contrary to speculation in advance – the two of them even visited. It was in the stars for a long time.
After shedding her royal commitments, it is not surprising that numerous public appearances with the family were not to be expected. That they were also greeted with boos by fans of the British Royalscould also have contributed to Harry and Meghan not feeling welcome in London.
So they preferred to spend most of their time in England at Frogmore Cottage, where they also celebrated daughter Lilibet’s first birthday – with numerous family members, but without Harry’s brother William and his family.
Countless street parties in London to mark the end of the festivities
Millions of Brits and Royal fans from all over the world celebrated the royal jubilee in the burroughs surrounding the palace. The numerous Royal supporters among the British have not yet been able to forgive the two – easy to recognize from the boos.
On Friday evening, 20 celebrities dared to compete in individual or synchronous duels in the “RTL high diving”. The name of the show may sound familiar to some, because of course it can be understood as a sequel to Stefan Raab’s production “Das TV total Turmsprung”. In any case, it is a new edition, because Raab has a finger in the pie here too. As a reminder: From 2004 to 2015, the stars and starlets plunged into the cool water. Instead of RTL, however, the format ran on Raab’s former house broadcaster ProSieben. The synchronized jumps by Elton and Stefan were particularly legendary.
