Meghan Markle Has Higher Rank Than Prince Harry In The US? Viewers Notice MAJOR Royal Blunder
Now that they've moved to the United States, does Meghan Markle have a higher rank than Prince Harry in terms of royal precedence?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a rare public appearance in early November at the Intrepid Museum in New York for the 2021 Salute to Freedom Gala.
Prince Harry wore his military decorations and the Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order cross, while the couple wore red poppies.
His wife, on the other hand, donned a bright red Carolina Herrera gown to the ceremony.
Many viewers noticed that when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were welcomed to the stage, where the Duke of Sussex, an army veteran, was to present the Intrepid Valor medals, the TV prompt first listened to Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, before Prince Harry and his title, according to the Daily Mail.
The prompter flashed the "Duchess of Sussex," followed by "Prince Harry," prompter.
Many viewers questioned the royal precedence, claiming that it was strange considering that it was a Veterans Day event and that Prince Harry was attending because he had a military experience and was preparing to distribute bravery medals to other veterans.
The 36-year-old former military man spoke on how his duty, which included two deployments in Afghanistan, molded the man he is today.
He told the audience as he presented the awards, "My experience in the military made me who I am today, and I will always be grateful for the people who I got to serve with - wherever in the world we were."
The sequence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's names at the event was revealed after a body language expert said that Meghan Markle was the one "leading" and "steering" her husband on the red carpet.
