Some of the biggest events on the royal family's calendar are in the summer, including the annual Trooping the Colour and Royal Ascot horse races (not to mention a royal wedding). Those big-ticket events, which include personal appearances from the royals, and all the attention that come with them could be giving Prince Harry the feels. According to Tom Quinn, royal expert and author of Gilded Youth An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family, the prince is feeling "nostalgic" for his old life across the pond. Speaking to The Mirror, Quinn explained that Harry wants to spend more time in England, but Meghan Markle has made it clear that she won't be returning to the U.K.

"Prince Harry wants to spend more time in the U.K., but he knows he is going to have to do it alone," Quinn shared. "Meghan has publicly stated that she has no intention of returning to England. This puts Harry in a really difficult position if any kind of positive relationship is to be re-established with his family."

Quinn also spoke about Harry's relationship with his friends, saying that he misses his military pals and that the reality of being so far away from home is settling in now that the "honeymoon period" of his big move to California has faded.

"After the excitement of moving to the U.S., the honeymoon period is now over and Harry is beginning to find time hangs heavy for him—he is increasingly nostalgic for much of his old life back in the U.K.," he said. "For all his problems with his family, he always loved his military and school friends and he misses them."

The royal insider's comments come after news broke that Harry and Meghan once had a secret property in the Cotswolds and would often entertain and host their friends there, away from the prying eyes of the public and the paparazzi in London. They stayed at the country property while Frogmore Cottage was getting remodeled and in his memoir, Spare, Harry did mention that he considered the cottage to be his "forever home," until it wasn't.

"Once upon a time, this was going to be my forever home. Instead, it had proved to be just another brief stop," he wrote.
