Meghan and Harry ‘raised eyebrows’ after Beatrice and Eugenie snub, says expert

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle "raised eyebrows" with their solo procession at the Platinum Jubilee service of thanksgiving, especially since they could have walked with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, it has been claimed.

The couple walked down the nave of St Paul's Cathedral alone, after the rest of the more than 40 royals and before Prince Charles and the Cambridges at the event last month.

According to royal expert Camilla Tominey, the move "raised eyebrows" behind palace walls.

This is because the Sussexes, who travelled back from the US for the Platinum Jubilee celebration, could have walked with Beatrice and Eugenie, who they eventually sat with.

Writing in the Telegraph, Ms Tominey said: "The Telegraph has also learned that the Sussexes’ decision to take a solo walk down the lengthy aisle of St Paul’s Cathedral for the service of thanksgiving on June 3 'raised eyebrows' behind palace walls – not least when they could have walked with Beatrice, Eugenie and their husbands, who were seated next to them in the pews."

Meghan smiled as she walked through the church, while Harry nodded greetings to members of the congregation.

They were personally escorted by Lieutenant Colonel Sir Alexander Matheson of Matheson, the Queen’s Senior Gentleman Usher.

Harry and Meghan had to squeeze past his cousins Beatrice and Eugenie and their husbands Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Jack Brooksbank, who were already seated, to get to their places.

Working royals filled the front-row chairs, with Harry and Meghan in the second row.

They were far across the aisle from Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

It was the first time they have returned to Britain with their two children Archie and Lilibet since they stepped back from royal duties two years ago.
