Prince Harry barred from saluting Queen Elizabeth during funeral

Prince Harry was forced to stand still Monday while other members of the royal family performed a final salute to the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II — as he was also banned from wearing his military uniform.

Harry, 38, who served twice in Afghanistan, was barred from the salute led by his father, King Charles III, after stepping back from his role as a working royal and moving to California with his wife, Meghan Markle and children.

Charles was joined in the salute to the Queen’s coffin by Princess Anne, Prince William, and other royals.

The salute was just another way Harry was seemingly humiliated in the aftermath of the Queen’s death.

He was forbidden from wearing his military uniform at the elaborate final farewell for his grandmother and was uninvited to a state reception for world leaders and foreign royals Sunday.

Harry and Meghan also did not join Prince William, Kate Middleton and other family members in the front row at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral at Westminster Abbey  Monday.

Instead, they were squished in a corner at the end of the second row — behind even disgraced Prince Andrew, who was stripped of his royal and military titles over his close association with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
