Prince Harry finding ‘taking a back seat’ difficult to swallow, says expert

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, has found being classed as a “second row royal” difficult to swallow, an expert has said.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were “put in their place”, as they were apparently banished to the “cheap seats” during the service of thanksgiving during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations at the weekend – according to royal commentator Daniela Elser.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent the service at St Paul's Cathedral stuck behind a group of teenagers, right at the back of the historic venue.

James, Viscount Severn — 15th in line to the throne — was one of those the couple were sitting behind.

The event saw members of the Royal family and invited guests pay tribute to the Queen, as well as thanking numerous volunteers and the British public.

But Royal fans noticed that the controversial couple — who stepped away from their Royal duties around three years ago — had seemingly been shoved to the back of the audience like an unwanted relative at a wedding.

And editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, and royal expert Ingrid Seward, writing in The Sun, said: “Protocol normally dictates members of the Royal Family are seated in order of precedence.

"But at the St Paul’s Service of Thanksgiving, the Sussexes were adrift from the senior members.

“The excuse was that as they are no longer working members, they were to take a literal back seat.

“The reality is the Palace were determined there would be no photographs that might reveal any animosity between the brothers.

“Becoming a 'second row royal' is difficult for Harry to swallow.

“When he walked into the cathedral with his stylish wife Meghan by his side, he looked fed-up.

“The Queen is obviously fond of Harry and Meghan – she was the one that wanted them to come to the UK and enjoy her Platinum Jubilee with her great grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet.

“Harry and Meghan are slowly learning just where they have to stand.”
