Prince Harry, who was also prohibited from donning his military uniform, was made to remain motionless Monday while other members of the royal family rendered a farewell salute to Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-reigning monarch.
After resigning from his position as a working royal and relocating to California with his wife, Meghan Markle, and children, Harry, 38, who served twice in Afghanistan, was denied access to the salute led by his father, King Charles III.
Princess Anne, Prince William, and other royals joined Charles in giving a salute to the Queen’s coffin.
In the wake of the Queen’s passing, Harry appeared to be embarrassed yet again with the salute.
He was not invited to a state reception on Sunday for global leaders and foreign royals, and he was not allowed to wear his military uniform during his grandmother’s lavish last farewell.
Additionally, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and other members of the Middleton family did not sit in front of Harry and Meghan for Monday’s burial for Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey.
Instead, they were crammed behind the disgraced Prince Andrew, who lost his royal and military titles due to his close relationship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, in a spot at the end of the second row.
