Royal experts believe Prince Harry’s snub at Prince Philip’s memorial service completely “overshadowed” the service and “dominated all talk”.
This news has been revealed by the real editor of the Daily Mail, Rebecca English, in her interview with Confidential of the Palace of MailPlus.
She was quoted as saying, “I certainly know from talking to the few people I did in the congregation, that Harry was a great topic of conversation among them, as well as Andrew.”
“People thought that, despite everything that had happened, it was bad enough that he didn’t go. There was a fantastic turnout from European royalty.”
“I think I counted almost 30 members of various royal families there, which I think shows how loved and appreciated Philip was.”
“There was one person notable for his absence and that was Prince Harry. In a way, I don’t think it was a bad thing because everyone would have been looking at it.”
Before concluding, he added: “Everyone would have been trying to assess his body language and the interactions he had with the rest of the family, given everything that has happened.”
