JQuery: How to fetch the remaining HTML after removing elements?

I am having a very hard time using jQuery on a custom HTML object. I am searching an element and removing it and after that I need the remaining HTML but I am unable to do it. My code is below:

Ideally it should return <div id="rendered"></div> only.

var data = '<h1 id="H9">Hi World</h1';
var html = '<div id="rendered">' + data + '</div>';

console.log($(html).find('#H9').length)
$(html).find('#H9').remove()
$('#view').html($(html).filter('#rendered').html()) // it shows h9 is there
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

<div id="view"></div>

>Solution :

You did not remove it from html, but from the unused object created by $(html)

Also you missed a > in </h1

var data = '<h1 id="H9">Hi World</h1><h2>Keep this</h2>';
var html = '<div id="rendered">' + data + '</div>';

const $html = $(html); // now we have a jQuery object
$html.find('#H9').remove(); // remove the #H9
console.log($html.filter('#rendered').prop("outerHTML") )
$('#view').html(
  $html.filter('#rendered').prop("outerHTML") // insert the div
);
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

<div id="view"></div>
