Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly had a few fall outs with royal relatives over the years, particularly when they quit the royal family for life in America.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were reportedly asked to stay away from Platinum Jubilee celebrations, while reports have emerged claiming brothers Harry and Prince William have had an ongoing feud for many years.

However, it has since been alleged Harry and Meghan - who have son Archie and daughter Lilibet - had an explosive row with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their final official engagement before leaving royal responsibilities two years ago.

It has been claimed the Harry, 37, and 40-year-old former Suits actor, were enraged at the Commonwealth Day Service, which was held at Westminster Abbey in London, back in 2020, because they were snubbed from the procession last minute.

Royal author, Tom Bower, shared details of the alleged feud in his new book Revenge: Meghan, Harry and The War Between the Windsors. 

He said: "Palace officials … decided to publicly humiliate [Harry and Meghan].

"Reality hit two days later, on 9th March. A monumental argument blew up after Harry was told that he and Meghan could not join the family’s procession through Westminster Abbey for the annual Commonwealth Day Service.

"Although the order of service listed Harry and Meghan walking behind the Queen, Palace officials had revised their decision. Suspicious about the Sussexes they decided to publicly humiliate them.

"Harry was told that having stepped down from royal duties, he and Meghan would sit and wait with the congregation. The prospect of the televised image of their isolation in the Abbey appalled them."

Not only was being axed from the procession a lot to take on, but Tom has claimed Kate and William were "outright distant" towards the pair, which reportedly added fuel to the fire.

He added: "By then they were keenly aware of Kate and William’s antagonism. William had not offered a brotherly welcome and Kate was outright distant towards her sister-in-law.

"Eventually, to end the dispute, William and Kate agreed they too would wait with Harry and Meghan. As the members of the Royal Family filed into the Abbey, the frayed relationships could not be concealed.

"Kate had blanked the Sussexes and William’s greeting was cold. Harry looked strained. Meghan’s face showed bemusement."
