Harry, Meghan sit apart from William, Kate at the funeral

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were further banished from their royal family during Queen Elizabeth’s funeral on Monday – forced to sit in the second row behind the disgraced Prince Andrew and well away from Prince William.

Harry – who was also banned from wearing his military uniform – sat in the second row with his wife, while most of his family had front-row seats, including non-working royals like Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips.

The California-based podcasters were immediately behind Harry’s father, King Charles III, and his consort Camilla – but in a different realm across the aisle to his once-close brother, new heir William, 40.

Harry, 38, had also been forced to walk behind his older brother as the procession entered Westminster Abbey in front of world leaders including President Biden.

William, proud in his military uniform, was behind his eldest son, Prince George, 9, as well as his wife, Princess of Wales Kate, and their daughter Charlotte, 7.

The young royals also walked behind the Queen’s coffin as it entered the abbey.

Harry also stood behind the other disgraced member of the family, Prince Andrew, 60, who was also forced to wear a morning suit but sat in the front row in the same compartment as his brother the King.

Andrew was joined by his late mother’s other two children, Princess Anne and Prince Edward.

His own children and their partners were alongside Harry and Markle, 41, while Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson – with whom he still lives – stood behind the Princess of Wales.

Fergie had brought shame on the family years before Harry and his wife.

Her split from Andrew in 1992 amid headline-grabbing cheating scandals was a key reason the Queen called that year her “annus horribilis,” Latin for “horrible year.”
