Harry is back in the U.S. as his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, celebrates a somber 95th birthday on Wednesday, just a few days after the funeral for her husband of 73 years.

Harry mourned the loss of Philip, who died at 99 on April 9, calling him "a man of service, honour and great humour" who was "cheeky right 'til the end," in a statement he released last week.

The trip overseas for the ceremonies also marked Harry's first time together with his older brother, Prince William, in more than a year. It also was the brothers' first time talking face to face since Harry and Meghan's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last month about why they broke away from the royal family.

William and Harry spent time talking together after their grandfather was laid to rest inside the royal vault at St. George's Chapel. They did not walk together at the start of the funeral procession, as Peter Phillips, 43, the oldest grandson of the queen and Prince Philip, walked between them.

Now back at home in California, Harry will be looking forward to the birth of a baby sister for their son, Archie. Harry also has taken a new job as an executive promoting greater dialogue around mental health for the startup company BetterUp.
