Prince Harry looks glum as he returns to UK for final royal engagements

Prince Harry has arrived back in the UK ahead of his and Meghan Markle’s final engagements as senior royals.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, appeared glum as he stepped out at Edinburgh’s Waverley Station this evening.

He arrived wearing a baseball cap, black puffa jacket and jeans as he stared down the lens of a camera as paparazzi gathered.

He was also seen carrying a suit while he was flanked by royal protection officers at the busy railway station.

The prince arrived in the Scottish capital ahead of a travel conference tomorrow promoting eco-friendly holidays.

He will launch a new holiday scheme with a “scoring system” to encourage tourists pick environmentally-friendly flights.

The Travalyst scoring system will advise holidaymakers on how bad for the environment their flights are.

There will be three themes – accommodation, aviation and travel experiences, reports The Telegraph.

Harry will then be joined by his wife Meghan next week as they whizz through a whirlwind 11 engagements in 13 days.

The engagements will be their first since the Sussexes announced they were quitting the Royal Family and moving to Canada.

The visits will also be their last before they officially quit for good on March 31 and return to their new, financially independent life in North America.

Next week the couple will attend the Endeavour Fund Awards in London on March 5 – the same day Prince William and Kate Middleton are in Ireland on a royal tour.

He and Meghan will then attend the Mountbatten Music Festival the following day.

Meghan will undertake her final solo royal engagement at International Women’s Day on March 8, before she and Harry take on their last engagement at the Commonwealth Service on March 9.

And, following lengthy Buckingham Palace talks, the Queen and senior officials have ruled the couple won’t be able to use the word “Royal” in their “Sussex Royals” brand.
