Prince Harry ‘snubs’ Boris Johnson in final royal engagement with Meghan Markle

Royal fans believe Prince Harry epically "snubbed" Prime Minister Boris Johnson at his final royal engagement before he and Meghan Markle quit as senior members of the Royal Family.

The outgoing Duke of Sussex was attending the Commonwealth Day service at London's Westminster Abbey when he appeared to avoid properly greeting the Conservative PM.

In footage of the incident which was shared on Twitter, Harry can be seen talking to another royal, who was standing next to Johnson.

But instead of turning to have a full conversation with the PM, Harry only offered him a quick nod and brief chat.

He then moved on to speak to Patricia Scotland, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, for a more detailed conversation.
