Prince Harry’s Request to Have Wreath Laid During Remembrance Day Ceremony Denied by Palace

Many members of the royal family joined Queen Elizabeth to pay their respects to fallen servicemen and women during Sunday’s (November 8) Remembrance Day, but Prince Harry was not included – despite his request.

The 36-year-old royal’s request to have a wreath of poppies laid at the memorial was turned down, according to The Sunday Times, marking the latest sign of his and wife Meghan Markle‘s estrangement from the royal family since stepping down from royal duties.

“The Duke of Sussex was refused permission for a wreath to be laid at the Cenotaph on his behalf today,” the outlet reported, adding that he “was denied by courtiers on the grounds that he is no longer representing the monarchy.”

“The Queen was not made aware of her grandson’s wish,” the report also reads, adding that he is “understood to be deeply saddened by the decision.”
