Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tried to hitch a ride back to America on Air Force One after Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral but were quickly rebuffed.

“It would have caused such a commotion. It would have strained relations with the Palace and the new King,” another source added.

First lady Jill Biden was reportedly asked to attend the 2022 Invictus Games but was advised not to.
It’s been a challenging time for the California-based couple as they recently lost out on their $20 million Spotify contract.
