Prince Harry was “uneasy” at his final royal public engagement with Megxit weighing on his shoulders, an expert has told Daily Star Online.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked in to Westminster Abbey ahead of Prince William and Kate Middleton for the Commonwealth Service, their first public meeting since Megxit was announced.
Meghan mouthed “hi” and gave a small wave to William and Kate, with Harry also smiling at his brother.
The pair were sat on different rows and barely appeared to interact after the brief greetings.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Daily Star Online: “William and Kate, as future King and Queen Consort, naturally had precedence in the seating.”

Harry appeared stern as he went through the church alongside a smiling Meghan.
Walking directly in front of them, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seemed downcast as they followed The Queen down the aisle.
He added: “It was especially poignant, that at a commemoration of the Commonwealth “Family”, the royal family were losing two of their most high profile senior members after less than two years of marriage.
“This will probably be the last official event the Sussexes will attend as senior royals and it is so obviously the monarchy’s loss too.

“Harry looked ill at ease, at the Albert Hall when he recently received a standing ovation in what may well be the last time he wears a uniform he looked much moved.
“He is walking away from what he has been brought up to value and, with all the Sussexes joy at getting independence it must be weighing with him a good deal.”
The four of them hadn’t been pictured together since they stepped out for Remembrance Day events in November.
Before Harry and Meghan left for Canada, there were rumours of a rift between the two princes.
