The Internet Is Claiming Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Were Snubbed at Queen's Funeral

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined other members of the royal family—as well as political leaders and foreign royals—for the Queen's state funeral on Monday, and people are questioning the seating arrangements.

The Duke and Duchess were seated in the second row, next to Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. They sat behind King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla, who were in the front row along with Princess Anne, Princess Anne's husband Sir Timothy Laurence, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, and Prince Edward's wife Sophie.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton were seated in the first row (across the aisle) with their children—and some people questioned the decision to have them up front, while Meghan and Harry were given second-row seats. Sure, one could argue that Prince William is the direct heir to the throne and therefore would obviously have a front-row seat—but plenty of people on Twitter have pointed out that Harry's cousin Zara Tindall and her husband Mike Tindall were also in the front row.

Check out comments on Twitter below, which include "they really just couldn’t HELP but put Harry and Megan in second row, when there was 2 perfectly fine spaces on Will and Kates row," "why put Harry on the second row when he could have sat next to his brother. Honestly he deserves a break from all the sly digs," and "Why is Prince Harry in the second row? Another bad decision by the royal family and truly disrespectful to her majesty the queen who adored her grandson. Where is the unity?"
