Royal Commentator Annabelle Sanders has told Sky News Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s response to the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, was a “little bit cold”.
Prince Philip died on Friday at the age of 99 as the longest serving consort to a monarch, and after 73 years of marriage.
The runaway royals released a short response to the death of Harry’s grandfather on their website Archewell.
“In loving memory of his Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh, 1921 – 2021. Thank you for your service…you will be greatly missed,” the statement read.
The Sussexes have been widely criticised for the message with some commentators calling it cold.
Prince Harry has announced he will be attending the funeral, but will not be joined by his wife.
“I think it will probably be easier if Meghan isn’t there because a lot of the responsibility for some of the really poor choices they’ve made as a couple have been put on her shoulders,” Ms Sanders said.
“They have been criticised for their response. It did seem a little bit cold to me.”
