The British royal family and more than 2,000 mourners gathered at Westminster Abbey on Monday for Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. They paid tribute to the monarch by singing ‘God Save the King’, but some eagle-eyed spectators said Prince Harry did not join the royals in singing the anthem. A short clip of Prince singing Nahi song has gone viral on Twitter and other social media platforms.
It sees the Duke of Sussex looking around and not uttering the words over and over again. His behavior sparked a flurry of online discussions.
Several Twitter users accused Prince of being “disrespectful”.

Sharing the post, the user wrote, ‘Prince Harry is not singing the national anthem. Some users expressed disappointment with Prince Harry’s actions in comments to the post, but others defended him by saying they could see him sing.
The user further wrote, ‘I don’t know who should listen to it, but now it applies to Badshah too.
In the comment section of the post, a user wrote, “Give him a chance. It’s changed since the last time he sang it – he hasn’t learned new words yet.”
Another said, “I can see Harry’s lips moving. He’s clearly not singing like karaoke, but he clearly makes a “cue” sound and he closes his mouth at the end . You are a disgusting no-no.”
A third user commented, “Edward wasn’t even singing. I guess it’s hard to sing when you’re emotional.”
Harry was seated behind his father, King Charles III, and the queen consort and his stepmother Camilla. His wife Meghan Markle was with him throughout the service.
