Technically, neither William nor Harry have precedence over their aunt and uncles. They are grandchildren of monarch, and comes after the children of monarch. Exceptions are made at times to recognize the situation of them being children of the next monarch. For the most part, both are given precedence, with the only exception being tonight and Queen’s birthday concert.

'Is given precedence' is indeed the more accurate term. To me it makes sense that an exception is made for William as the direct heir, while no exception is made for Harry as he isn't a future king.

Are the duke and duchess of Gloucester representing the queen elsewhere this weekend?

It doesn’t really matter what makes sense to anyone. Only Her Majesty. And for whatever reason, Harry wasn’t given the precedence tonight and at the birthday concert. However, on most of other occasions I’ve seen, he is. And as well Meghan even during engagement. And in the announcements, they are also put ahead of Queen’s younger children.

Duchess of Gloucester is behind Meghan.

Why are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex seated in the back where they can be barely seen ?



I can't tell either if the Duchess of Sussex is wearing a poppy.

She wore the same pin she had on the tour.

She wearing a pin, it looks similar to what Anne, Camilla and Sophie are also wearing.

Update from my earlier post about Duchess of Gloucester, the Royal Family Twitter has state Duke of Gloucester was there as well. Perhaps he’s behind Harry? From the angle of the photo, it’s hard to see in that corner since all the seats are facing the stage.

I’m so pleased that Henry and Meghan chose to take part of the remembrance of those who fell in WW1. I could not see if other royals did as well. It was such a beautiful thing to do, a very very fitting tribute.

She is wearing a poppy badge. Well the other royals have attended for many many years more so maybe the Queen thinks they should sit up front. On all honesty the royal box is not that big and the seating is always a bit all over. On this occasion H&M took a back seat (literally) to the most important thing... the festival of remembrance itself.

This festival move me every year. The stories are heartbreaking and the families are so brave by carrying on with great strength. The Kingdom Choir did a beautiful job. I love the fact this choir hasn’t been forgotten.

I don't think, that Harry and Meghan are seated on third row. All pictures were taken from the side, we don't see all royal box.

I think they are seated on 2nd row behind Camilla and Andrew.

1st row: Catherine, William, the queen, Charles (on Philip's place), Camilla, Andrew - 6 places
2nd row: Timothy, Anne, Edward, Sophie, Meghan, Harry - 6 places

I didn't see Princess Michael in the royal box,her husband was there beside the Duke of Kent.

Very moving ceremony ,Jerusalem and I vow to thee my Country were splendidly performed.

Having 2 great grandfathers who fought in WW1 its always a very poignant ceremony.

You are correct. Royal British Legion posted aerial view.

The Kingdom Choir sounded lovely. Seems that since the Royal Wedding they’ve landed on their feet!

I have to say I thought this year's programme to be especially lovely. Nice turnout from the BRF too.
