Princess Anne Blocks Prince Harry During Coronation

Despite the palpable friction among the royal family, Prince Harry did show up to support his father, King Charles. As a non-working member of the royal family, Harry was not allowed to wear his military garb, although his medals were adorned on his suit.

Harry was seated behind his aunt and uncle: Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Anne, Princess Royal. Keen viewers noticed that Harry’s view was partially obstructed, due to Anne’s ensemble, which featured a bright red feather sticking out of her traditional bicorn hat.

“That had to be deliberate they’re so petty,” another user wrote.

Writer Kathryn Hall poked fun at the visual, writing, “Princess Anne deserves a medal for wearing that hat today.”

Despite the commotion it caused online, Prince Harry and Princess Anne were seen enjoying a warm moment together inside Westminster Abbey.

The shenanigans of Prince Louis, 5, continued as King Charles was crowned king.

Prior to their arrival at Westminster Abbey, Prince Louis and his siblings, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince George, 9, rode in a chariot with their parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales. 

Inside, Louis put on an adorable display of confusion, boredom and disdain.
