Prince Harry and Meghan Markle mocked for disrespecting late grandfather Philip
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle know they will face serious consequences after missing Prince Philip’s memorial service.
The Duke of Duchess of Sussex not only opted out of the event at Westminster Abbey, but also kept his mum on social media while other family members paid tribute to the Duke from Edinburgh.
Royal expert Ingrid Seward, author of Prince Philip Revealed, told the Mirror she thought the lack of respect spoke volumes.
She said: “The wall of silence was as loud as if they had been shouting from the rafters of the Abbey. The normally wordy Duke and Duchess of Sussex said nothing.
“No spokesperson spat out long sentences of indecipherable words. There were no flowers with the florist’s name proudly displayed.
“No comment from Archwell. Nothing. Not even a word from their followers on various social media accounts.”
She added: “There was a lot of criticism over Prince Harry’s absence from his grandfather’s memorial service. But no reason was given as to why he chose not to attend. Harry himself.
“A few weeks ago he asked his spokesperson to say he wasn’t going. That was it.
“What a missed opportunity not to bring Meghan and the children to join the extended royal family, European cousins and of course Archie’s contemporaries.
“Their appearance would not have distracted the Queen. It was her day and no one could take that away from her, not even her favorite son, the Duke of York, who guided her to her seat. .
“The only explanation is that none of them wanted to go. There would have been no security issues. Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
“Harry must have known that would look irritable and rude. And if he hadn’t, Meghan would have.
“If it was a sharp snub to the whole royal family and it went wrong.
