Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 'emotional, upset' about Queen's snub at last royal appearance

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were reportedly upset by a last-minute decision that saw them left out of the Queen's royal procession at the Commonwealth Day Service this week. 

According to the Daily Mail, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were told they would not be joining Queen Elizabeth II as she walked in to Westminster Abbey, as they did last year. 

Instead, Harry and Meghan would be expected to take their seats ahead of time, while Prince William and Kate Middleton were not be excluded. 

UK tabloid media has alleged that William and Kate then felt forced to step in to "diffuse" the situation, offering to also sit the procession out. 

Still, it appears the damage was already done, as more than 2000 order of service programmes stating William and Kate as part of the main royal party had already been signed off 

Royal fans commented on the "awkward" greeting between the group now referred to as the "frosty four" as Harry, Meghan, William and Kate shared when the couples arrived inside the church. 

Meghan and Harry were sat a row behind Kate and William, as per their rankings in the royal family, but the Sussexs attempt at a warm "hello" went largely ignored by the Cambridges. 

The Commonwealth Day Service was Meghan and Harry's final public engagement as working members of the royal family. They're now expected to return to their home in Canada, where they'll reunite with their son Archie.
