Royal family reaches new level of pettiness in Prince Harry, Meghan Markle feud

The royal family’s ongoing feud with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seems to have just reached a new low.

On Sunday, Nov. 8, the citizens of the UK and the royal family honored members of the armed forces as well as allies who fought alongside the UK in times of conflict including both world wars. As part of the remembrance ceremonies led by Queen Elizabeth II, wreaths were laid by Prince Charles at the Cenotaph in London’s Whitehall for himself, the queen and Prince William in tribute to those who served.

Although Prince Harry requested for a wreath to be laid on his behalf at the ceremony, the war hero’s request was turned down by the royal family for the most outlandish reason.

According to The Sunday Times, the royal family chose to turn down Harry’s request because of his decision to step away from his official royal posting. The move seems to indicate just how strained things have become between Harry and his family, and it’s a shame the family let their pettiness get in the way of Harry’s desire to honor his fellow veterans.

While the royal family continues to push Harry further away, his wife Meghan Markle stood by Harry in support as the pair decided to honor those who served in their own way.

After the royal family’s outlandish rejection of his request to have a wreath laid at a Remembrance Day Ceremony, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their way out to the Los Angeles National Cemetry where they are reported to have laid flowers at the gravesites of two Commonwealth soldiers.

According to US Weekly, the couple placed flowers picked by Meghan on the gravesites of a member of the Royal Canadian Artillery and a member of the Royal Australian Air Force. Harry also  was said to have placed a wreath at an obelisk “that features a plaque with the inscription ‘In Memory of the Men Who Offered Their Lives in Defense of Their Country.'”

It might not have been how Harry originally planned on honoring his fellow servicemen and women on Remembrance Day, but with Meghan at his side he managed to still find a way to pay tribute in a touching way.
