Meghan and Harry criticised for Remembrance Day tribute

Last week Meghan faced a backlash over her Remembrance Day tribute with Prince Harry.

Harry is a veteran, unlike his father and brother who both laid wreaths at the Cenotaph.

The pair released pictures of themselves paying tribute to fallen veterans at the Los Angeles National Cemetery on Remembrance Sunday.

It came after Harry – who served in the British Army for a decade – was reportedly “denied” his request for a wreath to be a laid at The Cenotaph on his behalf.

Piers brands them so ‘outrageous’

Many people wrote off their actions as a publicity stunt, with Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan among those to comment.

He wrote on Twitter: “Just outrageous.

“Treating Remembrance Sunday like a PR opportunity, & trying to steal headlines from the real royals doing their duty back home.”

Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Markle also took issue with the pair’s tribute and told Dan Wootton on TalkRADIO that it was “opportunistic”.

However, some supporters praised the couple for marking the day themselves.

“I am so happy to see Harry and Meghan at their own service of Remembrance Day,” said one person on Twitter.

“Harry is a veteran, unlike his father and brother who both laid wreaths at the Cenotaph,” argued another.
