Daily Mail: Harry & Meghan Were Upset over Not Joining Queen's Procession during Commonwealth Day Service
Part of the tension witnessed in Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle's behavior during their final royal engagement at the Commonwealth service was over the royal protocol.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's final engagement as senior members of the royal family didn't go quite as planned when royal protocol interfered with their final walk with Queen Elizabeth.
According to Daily Mail, tensions were raised behind the scenes of the Commonwealth service when Harry and Meghan were informed of the change in their arrival with the Queen.
A year ago, the couple, along with Prince William and Kate Middleton joined the Queen and the Cornwall's in making their grand entrance into at Westminster Abbey.
However, the new arrangement meant that Harry and Meghan had to walk in without the Queen and make their own way to their designated seating before her arrival.
The last-minute change was evident in over 2000 copies of the program, which had noted that William and Kate would be entering with the Queen and the Cornwalls.
