Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have returned to California after a long period of mourning for the death of Queen Elizabeth II in the United Kingdom, Page Six confirms.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left their homeland on Tuesday, a day after they attended the late King’s funeral.
It does not appear likely that the alum was able to have the one-on-one conversation with King Charles III that she requested before leaving the country, it was reported.
The couple reside in Montecito with their two children, 3-year-old son Archie and 1-year-old daughter Lillipet, both of whom stayed with Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland.
Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, have moved to the port city after leaving their royal duties in 2020.
All eyes were on the couple during their last time in England, where they met Harry’s older brother, Prince William, and William’s wife, Kate Middleton.
The Fab Four had a string of tense interactions, from icy glare in public to separate seating arrangements at the late Queen’s funeral on Monday.
Throughout it all, Markle seemed to be showing her husband “silent support,” body language expert and author Judi James told Page Six exclusively.
“Meghan’s body language at the funeral was best described as ‘below the truth,'” she said of the podcast host Archetypes.
“She seems to give a continuation of this silent support to her husband as he sits and walks with a look of dignity tinged with sadness.”

Although Markle was filmed shedding tears over the King’s death, James expressed that Harry seemed equally devastated by the loss of his beloved grandmother.
James noted, “Walking beside him, but at a great distance from his brother, his furrowed eyebrows and rapid flashing indicated the appearance of tears.”
“When he watched the coffin being emptied, there was lip sucking swung from side to side and a shoulder roll he had performed earlier to indicate he was preparing emotionally.”
Elizabeth died on September 8 at the age of 96 after 70 years of rule.
In the days that followed, Harry and Markle faced a series of difficulties.

The couple were invited – and later not invited – to an official reception for world and foreign leaders last Friday.
Page Six exclusively stated that they only found out about it after reading about “no invitation” in the press.
Harry, who served 10 years in the military, was initially prohibited from wearing his military uniform at the Queen’s funeral. However, King Charles eventually allowed his son to wear it at the vigil.
Harry was stripped of his military titles when he stepped down as a working member of the royal family.
In his first statement about his grandmother, he said: “Grandma, while this last parting brings us great grief, I am forever grateful for all our first encounters – from my first childhood memories with you, to first meeting you my commander in chief, to the first moment I met you My beloved wife and embraced your beloved great-grandchildren.
“I cherish these times I shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You have already missed so badly.”
