KEY POINTS

  • Prince Harry dined out with Wallis Annenberg in an exclusive Hollywood club on Queen Elizabeth's birthday
  • The duke and the philanthropist sat outside the San Vicente Bungalows clubhouse and were far from other people
  • Prince Harry and Annenberg's meeting happened a day after he returned to Los Angeles from the U.K.

Prince Harry did not extend his stay in the U.K. for the Queen's birthday but was spotted dining out with a power player in Los Angeles on Her Majesty's special day.

The Duke of Sussex was spotted dining at super-exclusive Hollywood club San Vicente Bungalows with Wallis Annenberg, the queen of Los Angeles philanthropy, Wednesday, Page Six reported. The sighting happened on the same day Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 95th birthday in the U.K.

"They sat outside, far from other people, and Harry came in wearing a mask," an eyewitness told the outlet.

Several outlets claimed earlier that Prince Harry was considering extending his stay in his home country for the Queen's birthday. The duke flew to the U.K. to attend his late grandfather Prince Philip's funeral Saturday.

"Harry had been expected to fly home to the U.S. shortly after the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, it's understood he's not yet booked his return flight but will head back to California to his pregnant wife, Meghan, and son, Archie," Australian TV broadcaster Edwina Bartholomew said on 7 News’ breakfast show "Sunrise" Monday.

Many were hoping that the duke would stay longer in the U.K. for the Queen. However, multiple sources reported that he was already back in Los Angeles Tuesday.

According to an insider, it was not easy for Prince Harry to fly home after his and Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey for CBS that aired last month. In fact, he encountered cold treatment from the members of the royal family.

"Harry was out in the cold after Oprah and then when details of private family conversations were leaked to Gayle King it was the final straw," an unnamed family friend explained to Vanity Fair. "Some family members cannot believe what he has done, but there is a feeling that with the Duke's death and the family coming together, conversations need to be had."

Prince Harry and Prince William had a friendly reunion after Prince Philip's memorial. The Duke of Sussex was spotted leaving the chapel with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. However, a source close to the family said while it was a good start, there is no quick fix for their falling-out especially since "the whole argument runs so deep." Hence, it would likely take time before they could set aside their issues for good.

"Knowing family, it can mend a bit and then can slip back a bit," the source said.
