• Prince Harry reportedly requested to have a wreath laid on his behalf at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday
  • The royal family refused his request, a report says
  • Twitter users have a mixed opinion of the palace rejecting Prince Harry's Remembrance Sunday request

Prince Harry was reportedly sad and disappointed when Buckingham Palace denied his Remembrance Sunday request, but some social media users believe he should bear the consequences of stepping down as a senior member of the royal family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the Los Angeles National Cemetery as their way of honoring the U.K.'s Remembrance Sunday. But it was reported that Prince Harry also hoped to have a wreath laid on his and Meghan Markle's behalf during the ceremony at The Cenotaph memorial in London. However, the royal family reportedly denied his request.

Though the news has not been confirmed, some netizens were not sympathetic, claiming the duke gave his privileges up when he officially resigned from the royal family.

"Duh!? He chose Megxit - can’t have it both ways, Meghan," one tweeted.

"Harry can’t pick and choose his moments to remember that he was a member of the royal family and had ties to the armed services. He gave all that up when he turned his back on his heritage and betrayed all of us to marry the Princess of Bel Air," another netizen wrote.

"Learning what he lost when he turned his back on his Queen, his country and his family. No sympathy for him. He was old enough to know better and choose more wisely. Not the first and won't be last man to be swept off his feet by a pretty face," a third social media user wrote.

However, other royal fans believe Prince Harry had a right to make the request as he served in the army for a decade, sending him and his wife supportive messages via Twitter.

"Prince Harry should never have been denied the opportunity to have a wreath laid at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday, whether it was by an equerry/an organization/or his father on his behalf. That’s it!" one Twitter user commented.

"This is just petty and infantile on the part of the Royal palace, I’m sure he’d be welcome to lay a wreath, at the cenotaph in Ottawa no problem," another wrote.

"Family dynamics are complicated. Chin up mate, this too will pass. Embrace love. You’re an amazing man that forged his own path in life. Never feel bad about that. Be brave," another person tweeted.

Prince Harry made a personal request to Buckingham Palace but "was denied by courtiers on the grounds that he is no longer representing the monarchy," The Sunday Times reported. The Queen was reportedly not made aware of the Duke of Sussex's request.

The Sussexes commemorated Remembrance Sunday by visiting the Los Angeles National Cemetery, where they laid flowers at the gravesites of two commonwealth soldiers who served in the Royal Australian Air Force and the Royal Canadian Artillery.

However, the couple faced intense backlash after photos of them visiting the cemetery made headlines, with "Good Morning Britain" host Piers Morgan accusing them of trying to steal the spotlight from the royal family.
