Officials remarked that the Queen had no knowledge of the decision to reject Prince Harry’s involvement in the service. Although it has now been alleged that she personally had turned down the Prince’s request.

Daily Mail reported, “Remembrance Sunday is sacrosanct when it comes to Her Majesty’s diary. It’s one of the most important dates in her calendar and nothing is done without her knowledge.”

“People were suggesting the Palace’s reaction to what Harry asked was petty. But it was the Queen’s decision. And what’s more, she actually had very strong views on the subject,” a source had told Daily Mail. The source said the Queen took ‘all of two seconds’ to make up her mind.
