Why Sharon Osbourne Feels Sorry For Prince Harry And His Family After Platinum Jubilee

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance together in the U.K. since stepping down from their royal duties during Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee — and everything appeared to go off without any drama. 


Although they were excluded from standing on the royal balcony with the queen during the Trooping of Colour, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were all smiles when they arrived at St. Paul's Cathedral at the National Service of Thanksgiving. The crowd's reaction to seeing Harry and Meghan was surprising, with many waiting outside and greeting them with cheers, per Newsweek. The couple, however, was seated separately from Harry's father, Prince Charles, and his brother, Prince William.

Harry and Meghan did get the chance to introduce their daughter, Lilibet, to her namesake, Queen Elizabeth, and they had a small gathering to celebrate the girl's first birthday. "It was a lovely do and had everything you'd expect from a child's birthday party," a source told The Sun. "But there was no formal entertainment. The idea was for it to be very relaxed and casual, with people free to pop in and out as they wished."


But the proud parents didn't have any public interaction with Charles or William — and neither was in attendance at the birthday festivities. Harry and Meghan then decided to make an abrupt exit from the U.K. before the end of the Jubilee.

While some might have considered it rude, Sharon Osbourne says she feels sorry for the couple.

Sharon Osbourne thinks Prince Harry has regrets over leaving the royal family

After watching Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, Sharon Osbourne has a lot of sympathy for the couple. "The royal family has always been like a Shakespearean play for me," she said during an appearance on Fox News, per Page Six. "I have to tell you when I saw [Harry and Meghan] earlier on ... I felt sorry for them. And the way that they were parted from the family."


Although Harry has previously said he is happy with his new life in California, Osbourne isn't buying it. "I do feel sorry for him because I think that there must be a huge part of him that regrets," she said.

Osbourne believes Harry must also feel bad that his children, Archie and Lilibet, seemingly have no relationship with Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. The Cambridges were not in attendance at Lilibet's first birthday party, with William, Kate, George, and Charlotte visiting Wales for the Platinum Jubilee on the same day.

"It's got to have an effect on you when they don't have any cousins, aunts, uncles," Osbourne explained.
