Prince Harry’s wreath lays unused after Palace declined remembrance day request

PRINCE Harry’s Remembrance Day wreath lay forgotten yesterday after a Palace ban on it being laid at the Cenotaph.

We traced the tribute to the Royal British Legion’s Kent HQ.

Harry, in the US, is said to be “deeply saddened” by the decision raising the prospect his official links to the Royal Family have been cut.

Harry, who spent ten years in the Army, had asked for the wreath to be laid on his behalf at the London memorial.

Palace chiefs rejected the request because he is no longer a senior royal — having quit duties in March.

The £1,000 wreath was made at the Legion’s factory last year and kept for use.

Harry first attended the Cenotaph in 2009 aged 25.

He and wife Meghan were pictured with a wreath at the Los Angeles National Cemetery, laying flowers at the graves of two Commonwealth soldiers.

TV host Piers Morgan tweeted: “Outrageous. Treating Remembrance Sunday like a PR opportunity & trying to steal headlines from the real royals doing their duty back home.”

Harry hinted at regret for missing the London service telling a military podcast: “Even when we can’t all be together we always remember together.”
