PropertyLast month, Prince Harry (37) and his wife Meghan Markle (40) returned to the UK long after celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s (96th) platinum jubilee. This visit didn’t go as well as expected, author Tom Power says on the podcast “Pod Save the Queen.”
They now live in California, but to mark Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are back in the UK once again. They introduced their daughter Lillipet to the Queen and attended Thanksgiving Mass at St Paul’s Cathedral. While the latter wasn’t exactly a memorable moment, author Tom Power, who has just published a book about Harry and Meghan, told the “Pod Save the Queen” podcast. The couple were given a place away from their relatives: Prince Charles and Camilla, Prince William and Kate. Only small members of the royal family, such as Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice and their husbands, were near them.
And that stuck, Bauer knows. Now he says the couple did everything they could to be closer to Charles and William. “Unfortunately, it was too late to include it in my book, but Harry and Meghan had to get to Wellington Barracks, where they were on the bus waiting for the young royals. He was going to take them to St. Paul for the remembrance service. But they arrived so deliberately too late that I left.” Bus already. So they can take the car and enter the cathedral steps. Just what Netflix needs.” The streaming service is actually working on a documentary series about Prince Harry and his family.

“Then they walked down the aisle and reached their assigned seats,” Bauer continues. “I was told they asked six people to go up so they could sit in the aisle themselves. The servant is said to have said to them, ‘You can’t do that, you’re eight or nine.’ ‘Why?’ And the attendant said, ‘Because that’s what Your grandmother ordered it. I was told by a soldier.” Reluctantly, Harry and Meghan had to sit in the middle of class, as planned. After Thanksgiving mass, the couple had skipped their planned lunch. They also weren’t present for activities on Saturday and Sunday evenings. A conscious choice, as Katie Nicholl, Royal Correspondent for Vanity Fair, believes: “I really think they decided to do this because they knew they weren’t going to be in the front row. And why did they leave the royal family in the first place? Because they couldn’t stand in the front row. I really think that’s why they didn’t attend the other ceremonies: because they didn’t have important seats.”
