PRINCE Harry returned to the US in time for his son’s birthday after rushing home from his father’s coronation.
The Duke of Sussex arrived at Los Angeles International Airport at around 7:30pm local time – 3:30am UK – after spending just 28 hours in the UK.
He’s racing against time to get back to his son Archie’s birthday party.
While Harry watched his father ascend to the throne, Prince Archie spent the day with his mother, the Duchess of Sussex, at their home in America.
Harry left his father and other members of the royal family at Westminster Abbey in London around 13:15.
He jumped into a black electric BMW and sped 20 miles to Heathrow, arriving by a convoy of police cars around 2:05pm.
The grinning Duke then clutched the Order of Service from his father’s crowning as he was ushered into the Windsor VIP Room at Terminal 5.
Harry was home by dinner time – with snapshots showing him leaving LAX in his Range Rover at 7:30pm.
The Duke – who wore his service medal – attended the coronation without Meghan, 41, or two children Archie and Lilibet, one.
This is the first time he has been seen publicly with his family since the release of his explosive biography Spare.
Prince Harry arrived at the coronation ceremony separately from his brother William.
The Duke was accompanied by Edo Mapelli Mozzi, husband of Princess Beatrice, to the ceremony.
He then took his seat in the third row of the Royal Family, next to Jack Brooksbank, the husband of Princess Eugenie.
On his other side was Princess Alexandra, 86 years old – Queen Elizabeth’s cousin.
Harry smiled and appeared cheerful throughout the two-hour ceremony, before quickly leaving as the King and Queen climbed into the Gold State Coach.
