BBC viewers are convinced that Prince William made a “dig” at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Taking to the stage, the heir to the throne delivered an emotional speech paying tribute to his father and the key workers in Britain.
He claimed that the late Queen would be a “proud mum” seeing her son being crowned King and thanked his “Pa” for his commitment. He also appeared to reference the Sussexes who said: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
During his powerful speech, William said: “For all that celebrations are magnificent, at the heart of the pageantry is a simple message – service.”
After watching William’s speech, viewers were convinced it was a veiled dig at Harry and Meghan. One viewer said: “Service Harry. Do you hear that? Not a free ride.”
“SERVICE. Something Harry doesn’t understand” added another.
A third asked: “‘Service….’ ‘To serve…..’ ‘served…..’ Wonder who that was a dig at….. “
After the Sussexes decided to quit as working royals, Buckingham Palace released a statement about them stepping away from their duties.
It read: “Following conversations with the Duke, the Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of the Royal Family it is not possible to continue with responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.”
They hit back by issuing their own statement, which read: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
