Prince Harry is officially back home in the U.S., The Daily Mail (opens in new tab) and Hello! (opens in new tab) report. The Duke of Sussex was photographed arriving in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon, taking a 10+ hour American Airlines flight from London. According to the Daily Mail, Harry landed shortly after 1:30 p.m. California time and was driven back to his Montecito, California home he shares with Meghan. He arrived there around 4 p.m.
It was unclear how long Harry planned to stay in the U.K. after the Duke flew to England last week to attend the funeral of his late grandfather Prince Philip this past Saturday. After learning of Philip's death Friday, Harry was back in England two days later (opens in new tab), that Sunday.
Some U.K. outlets wondered whether he would stay for his grandmother Queen Elizabeth's 95th birthday today. Harry, understandably, opted to return home to Meghan, who is heavily pregnant with their second child (opens in new tab), a baby girl. She is due this summer and is so far along, she was not cleared to travel to England (opens in new tab) for the funeral.
Instead, Meghan watched the ceremony from home (opens in new tab). She sent a handwritten note and custom wreath with Harry, according to a spokesperson for the Duchess. The wreath was (opens in new tab)designed by florist Willow Crossley, who previously did floral arrangements for the couple's evening wedding reception and their son Archie's christening.
The flowers chosen in the wreath were symbolic choices by the Sussexes to pay tribute to Philip's life. Harper's Bazaar (opens in new tab) wrote that the wreath included “bear's breeches, which are the national flower of Greece, to represent Prince Philip's heritage, as well as sea holly, which represent the late prince's service in the Royal Marines. Other symbolic flowers featured are campanula for gratitude and everlasting love, rosemary for remembrance, lavender for devotion, and roses in honor of Prince Philip's birth month.”
