On Friday, June 3, royal fans eagerly joined in the coverage of the Queen’s platinum jubilee Thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s Cathedral to see the moment Prince William i Prince Harry they gathered in public again.
However, many may have been disappointed that the duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not sit close to each other.
The couples were on opposite sides of the cathedral, while Kate and William sat in the front row with Prince Charles and Camille, while Harry and Meghan were next to their cousins Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice and husbands Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Jack Brooksbank
But before Kate and William took their seats, royal expert Richard Kay said Prince Harry would have a “painful 19 minutes”.

Writing for post office he claimed that the seating arrangement showed the “public reality of Harry’s slide down the royal order, branding Charles, Camille, William and Kate as ‘the real stars of the show’.”
“As non-working members of the royal family, they are now very much in a different league,” he said.
“And although they were spared the insult of sharing a coach who brought in a bunch of smaller members of the royal family who similarly do not perform official duties, such as the son of Princess Michael of Kent, Lord Frederick Windsor, they were just behind them.”
Kay continued: “It was painful 19 minutes before William and Kate arrived to take their seats.
“If the reality of his new life has escaped Prince Harry so far, it must have sunk then.”
The brothers have not yet been seen together during the platinum jubilee celebrations.
However, some have speculated that Kate Middleton’s outfit for Thanksgiving service was a a subtle nod to Harry and Meghan.
The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning in a yellow Emilia Wickstead dress and a Philip Treacy hat to match it.
Treacy is said to be one of Meghan Markle’s favorite designers, and Kate also wore a very similar design at Harry and Megan’s 2018 wedding.
