  • She said she felt sorry for Prince Harry and his wife and the way they were parted from the royal family
  • Osbourne suggested that there may be part of Prince Harry that "regrets" his decision to quit royal duties

Sharon Osbourne shared her thoughts on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's return to the U.K. for Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebration, saying she felt "sorry" for the duke after his 2020 royal exit.

Prince Harry and Markle flew to England last week with their two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, to join the royal family in celebrating the Queen's 70 years on the throne with four days of festivities.

During Fox News' coverage of the royal weekend Friday, Osbourne and Piers Morgan discussed the dynamic between Prince Harry, 37, and his family members following his and Markle's decision to step down from royal duties.

"The royal family has always been like a Shakespearean play for me," the former "The Talk" co-host, 69, was quoted as saying by Us Weekly. "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."

Morgan, 57, who has been a vocal critic of the Sussexes over the years, countered Osbourne's point, asking, "Why should we feel sorry for them given the way they’ve trashed this family in public so often?"

Osbourne conceded that Prince Harry and Markle have seemingly been "making their living over talking about the royal family" but doubled down on her opinion.

"I do feel sorry for [Harry] because I think that there must be a huge part of him that regrets [what happened]," she explained. "I mean, can you imagine how he felt yesterday [at Trooping the Colour] with the whole family in that procession and he would have normally been there on one of those horses with his uniform and everything. And there he was, shushing the children."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kept a low profile throughout the Jubilee festivities. The couple watched the Trooping the Colour parade Thursday from the Major General's Office, while Prince Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth, father Prince Charles and brother Prince William appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. The Queen had limited the balcony appearance to senior working members of the royal family.

Prince Harry and Markle made their only official Jubilee appearance while attending the National Service of Thanksgiving in honor of the Queen at St. Paul's Cathedral in London, where they were greeted with a mix of cheers and boos from the crowd outside Friday.

The couple sat apart from Prince William and Duchess Kate during the service and were not seen publicly interacting with any of Prince Harry's immediate family members.

Following the service, Prince Harry and Markle did not join the rest of the royal family for a lunchtime reception hosted by London's Lord Mayor, Vincent Keaveny, at Guildhall.

British journalist Dan Wootton told royal pundit Lady Colin Campbell on his GB News show that various royals worked in different rooms during the reception. He claimed to have spoken to one reception guest who had been "incredibly disappointed" that there were no royals in their room and had been told that it was because the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn't show up.

"They didn't bother to show up because they couldn't contain their rage," Campbell claimed.

Prince Harry and Markle quietly returned to California with their children Sunday, skipping the Platinum Jubilee Pageant that closed out the four-day celebrations.
