After quitting the UK for the US, Prince Harry was reportedly not allowed to have a wreath laid at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday 8 November.

The Duke of Sussex, who has been restyling his LA home with wife Meghan Markle, was left "deeply devastated" by the snub, although the Queen was not made aware of Harry's request, according to The Times.

The annual laying of the wreath on Remembrance Sunday has a special place in the 36 year old's heart after he laid a wreath for the first time in 2009 when he was 25.

But after leaving the UK and starting a new life in LA with Meghan, 39, and son Archie, one, the Duke was unable to attend the ceremony.

Although his brother was not in attendance, Prince William was seen attending the service and laid a wreath as the Queen and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge watched.

After the Queen posed for a family photo in 2019, alongside the three future kings, son Prince Charles, grandson Prince William and great-grandson Prince George, royal author Robert Lacey claimed Prince William and Prince Charles used the photo to send a message to Prince Harry and Meghan.

The author made the revelation in his new book Battle of Brothers and insisted the idea came from Prince Charles and it served as a stark reminder to his youngest son that he is further down the line of succession to be king.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Robert said: "What a fascinating and historic image to remind us of the essence of the royal system!
