Sources claim that Prince Harry suffered a “humiliation” right before standing guard at the Queen’s vigil, and this is reportedly adding stress to the already tense relationship between the royal family members.
In his military uniform, 38-year-old Prince Harry accepted the privilege of keeping watch over the coffin of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. He wore his uniform, as his father, King Charles III, had asked him to, for the responsibilities he took on that Saturday.
Sources claim that Prince Harry was “devastated” when he got his uniform from Buckingham Palace and saw that the shoulder patch with the initials of his grandmother’s had been removed.
The prince, who fought in Afghanistan for two deployments and saw battle on the front lines during both of those missions, has never before been allowed to wear his military uniform in public while he grieves since he is no longer a working royal.
When it was revealed that the Duke of York, who is no longer a working royal, had lost the initials from his vice-uniform, the situation only got worse during the vigil that was held on Friday night. According to a friend, Harry considered wearing a morning suit before leaving for Westminster Hall in order to escape the “humiliation” of being seen in his robes.
They said: “He’s experiencing heartbreak. It appears that the document’s initials for his grandma were deleted on purpose.”
The royal family, Prince Harry, and his wife Meghan Markle have been implicated in what has been described as an ongoing argument. This latest incident is part of that struggle. According to a report, Prince Harry and Meghan found out they had been “uninvited” to a reception at Buckingham Palace through the media.
Both allegedly received invitations to the celebration held on Sunday at Buckingham Palace, but they were later prohibited from going. It was believed that the justification given was that the occasion was only for working royals.
The Queen’s funeral took place at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19, at 11:00 a.m. local time in London. Major television networks covered the touching event, and a bank holiday was marked to honor the occasion. This provided anyone who choose to mourn the loss of Queen Elizabeth II the chance to do so.
