Although Prince Harry has been smiling for pictures during Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, royal expert Neil Sean doesn’t believe it’s genuine.
Sean shared with Fox News Digital that, to him, Harry looked “deeply unhappy” while attending the Service of Thanksgiving. Sean was in attendance at the Platinum Jubilee event.
“Let me tell you one thing I did notice and this is that Prince Harry looks deeply unhappy up close and not at all happy with his new lot in [life],” Sean said in his estimation.

“It’s obvious he misses this [life] and this is [a] stark reminder of what he has walked away from, and I would say he knows it,” Sean speculates.
“Now a life of injunctions, press attacks and failed TV deals awaits him and [his wife] Meghan [Markle] upon their return, which can’t be nice, and no matter what he said about [being] trapped in this life, he sure made snappy he rushed back to grab the limelight and that truly was the feeling within the royal circle today,” Sean concluded.
A rep for Prince Harry did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
