The Queen's funeral was held on September 19, 2022.

The Queen's funeral on September 19 was the day of mourning for the whole nation as Queen Elizabeth II's lying-in-state ceremony ended. On Monday, the royal family gathered at Westminster Abbey in London for the late Queen's church service. Though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were part of the funeral as family members rather than royals, they were made to feel the difference in their ranking.

As per the snaps obtained from the service, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were seated way back and in the corner alongside Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie and their respective husbands Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Jack Brooksbank. While the other royals were seated in the front row of the church aisle, Harry and Meghan were squished on a side of the second row. 

Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton were stationed right at the front alongside their two little children Prince George and Princess Charlotte who they brought along to their great-grandmother's final service. Although the estranged brothers were seated far from each other, Harry and Meghan were positioned right behind King Charles III and the Queen Consort. Previously, the brothers shocked many royal enthusiasts as they walked side-by-side at the late Queen's coffin procession and also joined each other at the vigil the day before. Surprisingly, Prince Harry was allowed to wear his military uniform at the vigil which he was denied the right to carry before during the public procession, given his rank as the Duke of Sussex.

They were seated as per their ranking/relation. First row the king and siblings with spouses with William the most first in line to the throne and the first grand child. Harry the second grandchild sitting along with other grandchildren and spouses. I have been following this for the past 10 days and so far haven\'t observed any public slight on Harry from the family he left behind for his wife.
