Prince Harry left the royal fold in 2020.

OK! previously reported American royal commentator Kinsey Schofield thinks the lack of royals attending the Invictus Games celebration is due to the duke's behavior.

"There will be no senior members of the royal family to support Prince Harry," Schofield told an outlet.

"Prince Harry is suffering the consequences of his actions," Schofield explained. "Harry does not take responsibility for the tsunami of hurt he has caused his family. The king sees this very clearly. Harry is still under the impression that he has not done anything wrong by purging family secrets for paychecks. That delusion concerns everyone that used to be close to Harry.
