The Royal Family paid tribute to the late Prince Philip at a memorial held at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday. Queen Elizabeth II attended after speculation as to whether her ongoing health problems would prevent her from joining. One family member who was not in attendance was the Duke’s grandson Prince Harry who was blasted by royal expert Angela Levin on Wednesday’s instalment of GB News for missing the service.
Addressing Prince Harry missing out on the memorial, host Eamonn Holmes said: “He could have used his own security, though not armed, or he could have used his father’s or his brother’s security as well and they apparently were very happy to embrace him.”
Angela replied: “He knows very well he can’t have all the details of MI5 and MI6 anymore because he’s stepped back from being a working royal, but this is what he wants and this is why he is taking the Home Office to court.”
The expert then explained to GB News viewers the other reason she believed Harry missed the service.
She claimed: “I think there is another reason why and that is he doesn’t want to come here without a Netflix gang of photographers and people there because he needs to make another documentary.”

He said the trip had brought into sharper focus “questions about the past and the future”.
He added: “Catherine and I are committed to service. For us, that’s not telling people what to do.
“It is about serving and supporting them in whatever way they think best, by using the platform we are lucky to have.”
Angela claimed William’s comment about “not telling people what to do” was a “dig” at his brother, who has vocally campaigned for several causes since quitting royal duties.
Speaking on Sky News, the author said: “I think he’s right, I think that worked very well to say what he felt without telling people what to do – which I thought was also a dig at his brother.”
Prince Harry, 37, resides in the US with his wife Meghan and their two children Archie and Lilibet.
The couple quit as working members of the royal family in January 2020.
