Prince Harry's connection with members of the royal family may have strained. According to reports, three senior royals allegedly did not acknowledge him when he joined Prince Philip's funeral last year.

When Prince Philip died in April last year, the Duke of Sussex traveled to the United Kingdom. He left without his wife, Meghan Markle, who was pregnant at the time with their daughter, Lilibet.

On the other hand, Prince Harry did not appear to receive a warm greeting from all members of the royal family. According to the Daily Star, three senior royals "didn't acknowledge Prince Harry" before or after Prince Philip's funeral.

Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, were said to be the three royals. According to the outlet, they appeared to have avoided him from last year's emotional service.

The royal family greeted Markle's spouse with "a great deal of frostiness," according to an unnamed insider who spoke to Mail on Sunday (via Daily Star).

"They are very upset," the tipster added. "They are putting on a united front for the Queen. They all think he has behaved appallingly."

In an article for the Daily Mail, royal biographer Gyles Brandreth said that the late Duke of Edinburgh was not pleased with Prince Harry and Markle's candid interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

"I know from someone close to him that he thought Meghan and Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey was 'madness' and 'no good would come of it,'" Brandreth wrote. "I was not surprised because that is exactly how he described to me the personal TV interviews given by Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, back in the 1990s."

Over the weekend, it appeared that the identical situation occurred at Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee. Many people noticed that there was almost no interaction with the senior working royals when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended the National Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral on Friday.

Angela Levin, a royal biographer who spent a year researching on Prince Harry's biography, commented on the Sussexes' lack of attendance at the four-day event. Prince Harry, in her perspective, was dissatisfied.

"I think he would have been very, very upset that he was largely ignored," the royal expert told The Sun of Prince Harry. "He still feels he's owed an apology."

However, the " Harry: A Biography of a Prince" author persisted that the Duke of Sussex should be "the one who should apologize."

According to Levin, Prince Harry claimed that his father had cut him off and that Charles and William were stuck during the Oprah interview.

"You can't just go around being rude about people and expecting them to open their hearts to you again," Levin added.
