Disgraceful Harry will ‘regret’ missing Philip’s memorial says GB News host

Prince Harry will “regret” his "disgraceful" decision not to attend Prince Philip’s memorial, a royal commentator has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex announced on Friday (March 11) that he would not attend Prince Philip’s memorial on March 29.

A spokesperson for the Prince confirmed he will not be making the trip from California to attend the event.

The decision was tweeted by Harper’s Bazaar royal editor Omid Scobie, who added that Harry is hopeful he can reunite with the Queen soon.

He tweeted: “A spokesperson for the Sussexes confirms that Prince Harry will not be returning to the UK for the Service of Thanksgiving for the life of Prince Philip on March 29.

“He does, however, hope to visit the Queen as soon as possible.”

The Queen was reportedly told of Harry's decision just 15 minutes before the announcement was made regarding him not attending his grandfather’s memorial service.

The Prince has received both public condemnation and support for his decision on Twitter.

GB News host Dan Wootton criticised his plans and argued that the Duke will regret his decision.

He tweeted: “Prince Harry’s silly feud with the Government over security means he won’t return to the UK for his late grandfather’s Service of Thanksgiving later this month.

“But he managed a jaunt to Texas for a rodeo this week. A disgraceful decision that he will end up regretting.”

Piers Morgan also criticised Harry’s decision not to attend the memorial, taking to Twitter to blast the royal.

He shared his thoughts with his 7.9 million followers on the social media site by quoting a tweet from ITV royal editor Chris Ship and adding his own personalised 'emoji checklist' to illustrate Harry's record of attendance at recent high-profile events.

Piers placed a tick emoji next to two rows titled "Super Bowl" and "Texas Rodeo", and contrasted this with a red cross emoji next to one that read "Grandfather's service".

Harry was spotted at a Texas rodeo last weekend, an appearance which drew both praise and criticism from the public.

The Daily Star has approached the Duke of Sussex for comment.
