Prince Harry and Meghan set to be sidelined at Queens funeral, claims critic

Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle are set to be sidelined for the Queen's funeral next week, an expert has claimed.

The entire Royal Family will be expected to be present at the Monarch's funeral in London on Monday (September 19).

And while most royals will be front-and-centre of the crowds, it is being rumoured that Harry and Meghan might not be.

According to one of the couple's biggest critics, Daniela Elser, the couple could be placed in near the back, in a similar way to how they were seated at the Service of Thanksgiving during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee events in June.

Although no details about the funeral arrangements in such detail have been released, it could be a “truly painful” moment for Harry for more reasons than just the obvious.

Writing for news.com.au, Esler said: The gap that exists between William and Harry’s positions has only grown that much bigger over the last few days, something that these new details about walkabout and William only drives home further.

“The Palace would seem to be keen on reminding everyone who is who in the gold-braided zoo, a situation that does not bode well for the Sussexes when it comes to the Queen’s funeral.

“So far the royal family has shown they intend to stick staunchly to protocol. Overnight on Tuesday it was revealed that only working members of the royal family will be allowed to wear military dress, meaning both Harry and Prince Andrew will be left in mourning suits.

“However this time around, the Palace is playing things by the rule book meaning that Charles and his siblings, along with William, and the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent, will all be done up their regimental finest and Harry and his uncle will be left horribly conspicuous in their sombre black get-ups.

“It’s hard to see how, for Harry who proudly served ten years in the army, this would not be a truly painful moment.”

The funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey, with world leaders invited to pay their respects.

Members of the British public will not be allowed into the Abbey itself, but can pay tribute to Her Majesty while she is lying-in-state at Westminster Hall for four days prior.
