Lorraine Kelly slams Prince Harry for missing Prince Philip's memorial


Lorraine Kelly blasted Prince Harry for missing Prince Philip’s memorial service.

The Scots TV host was talking on her ITV breakfast show this morning when she made her thoughts on Harry’s absence very clear.

A total of 30 of the top royals were in attendance at the event at Westminster Abbey.

The celebration of the Duke of Edinburgh was organised due to the fact his funeral was scaled back because of Covid-19 restrictions.

Prince Harry had refused to attend because of safety fears for his family.

But Lorraine wasn’t having any of it and said he’d “live to regret it”.

Lorraine added: “It’s just a shame and I think he will live to regret it.

“I must admit up until the very very last minute I thought, do you know what – Prince Harry will just come over. I think he’s really going to regret this.

“He’s not going because he says he doesn’t feel safe. For goodness sake, they’re in Westminster Abbey. Can you imagine how many people are there looking after the Queen and everyone else. It just seems a shame.”

Harry feared for his wife Meghan Markle and kids Archie and Lilibet because he is no longer entitled to the same level of protection when he comes to the UK as he has stepped down from royal duties.

Lorraine said she thought there was bound to be enough “beefy” security on site and rejected the argument.

And she praised the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for bringing eldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the event and for “looking to the future”.

The Queen made the last minute decision to attend the event just yesterday morning after suffering from health concerns recently.

She caused controversy when she was escorted in and out of the abbey by disgraced son Prince Andrew, which royal commentators said was a message to the public that he would always have a place at their family events, but not official ones.
