Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will receive a different treatment since they are no longer working royals, according to a report.

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Will Lose The Royal Spotlight?

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to step back from their royal duties in 2020. They left the U.K. and settled in California.


According to the royal couple, they wanted t be financially independent of the firm. However, their decision also comes with consequences.

With King Charles' coronation coming up, the Sussexes should not expect to be given important seats. In any family events, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be placed near his cousins Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

"Now that they are no longer working royals, the Sussexes can expect to be treated the same way as Harry's cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who attend important family occasions but are not in the spotlight and do not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony," Vanity Fair royal editor Katie Nicholl wrote.

"It has already been agreed that only working royals will make a balcony appearance during the coronation and sources have said that the focus will be on King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William and Princess Kate."

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Wanted Better Seats At Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebration?

Nicholl's point was clear and royal fans had already observed it. Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were noticeably missing when the royal family made a balcony appearance at Trooping the Colour.


They were also seated beside Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, when they attended the National Thanksgiving Service in honor of Queen Elizabeth at St. Paul's Cathedral.

Their seats were not close to Kate Middleton, Prince William, King Charles and Queen Camilla since they are non-working royals. According to Daily Record, they allegedly wanted better seats.

British journalist and investigative reporter Tom Bower shared more details from the event. According to him, the Sussexes deliberately arrived late to make a grand entrance because it was what Netflix needed.


"And then as they walked down the aisle, they get to the seats in the row they are assigned and I'm told they then asked six other people sitting this side of the aisle could they move down so they could sit on the aisle itself," Bower continued.

"And the usher apparently said to them 'you can't, you're sitting in seats eight or nine' or whatever it was and Harry said 'why?' And the usher said 'that's what your grandmother ordered.' I'm told that from a military man."

Prince Harry and Markle only made one public appearance during the Queen's 4-day Jubilee celebration. Nicholl believed they decided not to be more visible because they wouldn't be in the front row.


What can you say about the Sussexes getting the same treatment as the Princesses of York, who are also non-working royals like them?
