Not only will the Queen be absent from today’s Commonwealth Day ceremony, but so will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The ceremony is usually packed with royals, and in 2019 and 2020, both Harry and Meghan attended services to commemorate the major day in the royal calendar.
In reality, the 2020 event was their final royal engagement before resigning as senior royals to pursue other opportunities in North America.
They were present for the service alongside the Queen, Prince William, and the Duchess of Cambridge, and many people commented on the tension amongst the members of the family.

Harry seemed to be “fighting back the tears” after what they considered to be a “snub,” according to a book.

2,000 orders of service were circulated before to the ceremony, stating that William and Kate would enter the Abbey with the rest of the royal party.
There was no mention of Harry and Meghan being in the procession, according to the Daily Mail, who stated that the pair was “very sensitive and upset about it.”
In an attempt to address the matter, William and Kate allegedly did not walk in the procession, despite the rules of service suggesting otherwise.
Royal novelist and historian Robert Lacey claims that, despite Meghan’s “megawatt” grin, Harry was more glum in his book Battle of Brothers.

He writes: “So there was the snub in black and white – set out for all to see.
Harry revealed last week he will not return to the UK for a memorial service for his late grandfather Prince Philip

“Observers also noted that Harry’s face was ‘quite tense and unsmiling’ – and that when William sat down close to him, he barely greeted his brother.
“Throughout the service, Meghan megawatted away with her best TV smile but, as the ceremony progressed, Harry appeared to grow gloomier.
“According to one observer, ‘his accelerated blinking even suggested he might have been fighting back tears.”

Since then, Harry has only visited the United Kingdom twice, for Prince Philip’s funeral and the inauguration of a statue of his late mother, Princess Diana, while Meghan has not visited the country at all.
Harry also announced on Friday that he will not be attending a memorial ceremony for his late grandpa Philip at Westminster Abbey.
It comes as part of the Duke of Sussex’s court battle with the UK’s Home Office over his security arrangements.

The 37-year-old prince is expected to pay a visit to the Queen as soon as possible, but no date has been set.
