Next setback for Harry and Meghan before the Queen’s funeral: At an event hosted by King Charles III. they are not allowed to be there.

London – The whole of Great Britain mourns the death of Queen Elizabeth II. After the death of the monarch, London is now heading for what is probably the biggest media event of the year: the funeral of the long-time regent. In Germany, too, the funeral ceremonies will be broadcast on a number of TV stations on Monday. All information about the funeral of the Queen can be found here.

Queen’s funeral on Monday: Prince Harry receives uniform exemptions – but is barred from attending an event

Of course, the time of mourning should be particularly difficult for her family. King Charles III already has to take care of a number of obligatory events in the middle of the national mourning period. However, the new regent was not completely free of scandals in his first day as monarch. Among other things, a ballpoint pen caused a stir about King Charles. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, who are of course also in London on this sad occasion, are also being watched particularly closely these days.

There has been much speculation about the mood between Harry and his brother William. The relationship between the two has been strained since Harry’s royal retirement. For Queen Elizabeth, however, the two are said to have put their differences aside. Nevertheless, Harry still seems to be a bit on the sidelines in the circle of the royals. Among other things, it was first said that he was not allowed to appear in uniform at the funeral on Monday because he was no longer an active member of the royal family. For him and Prince Andrew, who is also publicly criticized, a uniform exception should now be made. Meanwhile, there are no exceptions at another special event in the run-up to the funeral.

King Charles III hosts state dinner in honor of the Queen – Meghan and Harry are left out

As the royal family has now announced, King Charles will host a state dinner on Sunday evening. However, Harry and Meghan will be absent from the event at Buckingham Palace, the palace said in a statement. The reason: The dinner is only reserved for “working royals”. This officially no longer includes Meghan and Harry since “Megxit” 2020. Incidentally, the same applies to Prince Andrew, who was released from his royal titles after his involvement in an abuse scandal.

So the next setback for Harry and Meghan in the midst of mourning the loss of Harry’s beloved grandmother – and not the first reason to cause friction between the couple and the new king. Allegedly, Harry and Meghan are angry because Charles does not want to give their children, Archie and Lilibet, royal titles. Meanwhile, it should already be clear which two personal items the Queen will take to the grave. (han)
