Page Six can confirm that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have flown back to California after a lengthy period of mourning over the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left their hometown on Tuesday, a day after attending the funeral of the late monarch.

According to reports, the “suit” alumnus seems unlikely to have a “one-on-one” conversation with King Charles III that she asked for before leaving the country.

The couple lived in Montecito with their children, son Archie, 3, and daughter Lilibet, 1, with Markle’s mother Doria Ragland.

Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, have moved to the coastal city after notoriously stepping down from royal duties in 2020.

All eyes were on the couple during their recent visit to England, where they were reunited with Harry’s brother Prince William and William’s wife Kate Middleton.

The Fab Four engaged in a series of tense interactions, from icy glare in public to individual seating arrangements for the late Queen’s state funeral on Monday.

Throughout the process, Markle appeared to show “silent support” to her husband, body language expert and author Judy James exclusively told Page Six.

“The best description of Meghan’s body language at the funeral is ‘low-key,’” she said of the “Archetype” podcast host.

While Markle was pictured in tears over the monarch’s death, James said Harry seemed equally heartbroken over the loss of his beloved grandmother.

“Walking next to him, but a long way from his brother, his frowning eyebrows and quick winks indicated he was starting to cry,” James noted.

“When he saw the coffin being unloaded, his lips were sucking, rocking from side to side, and the shoulder roll he had done before showed that he was supporting himself emotionally.”

Elizabeth died on September 8 at the age of 96 after a historic 70-year reign.

In the days that followed, Harry and Markle faced a series of difficulties.

Harry was stripped of his military rank after resigning as a working member of the royal family.

In his first statement about his grandmother, he said: “Grandmother, although this final parting has brought us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all our first encounters – from my childhood with you Remember the first time I saw you my commander-in-chief, until the first time you met my dear wife and hugged your beloved great-grandson.

“I cherish these times I shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You have been sorely missed.”
