The SussexRoyal account shared two snaps to mark the Commonwealth Day service, both showing just Meghan and Prince Harry as they spoke with guests.
Royal fans couldn’t help but note the difference between the two Instagram accounts’ posts, with one person saying: ‘They only have pictures of themselves whereas the Cambridges and other royals have pictures of the family.’
A second wrote: ‘Learn from the Cambridges. They really include the “members” of the family’, while another said: ‘Would it have been nice to include a picture of Her Majesty The Queen? Yes.’
The service yesterday marked the final official event for Prince Harry and Meghan as they prepare to step down from life as senior members of the royal family.

The Sussexes appeared to exchange an awkward ‘hello’ with Prince William and Kate at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey yesterday afternoon.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked in ahead of William and Kate – the first public meeting of the two brothers and their wives since Megxit was announced two months ago – before Prince Charles and Camilla also arrived and the Queen then made an entrance to trumpet fanfare and cheers from crowds outside.
Unlike last year, Harry and Meghan were conducted to their seats at the church in London, rather than waiting for the Queen’s arrival and walking through with the monarch and key royals as they did in March 2019.
Once seated, the royals’ position on the chairs was based on their ranks within the family, with Charles next to the Queen due to him being first-in-line, followed by William in second, and Harry in sixth.
They took similar positions last year, although Meghan was next to Prince Andrew, who has since stepped down from royal duties.
Meghan was seen to mouth ‘hi’ and give a small wave to William and Kate, followed by a ‘hello’, as the Cambridges took their seats near the High Altar. Harry also said ‘hello’ and smiled at his brother.
It comes after Harry admitted last October that he and his brother are on ‘different paths’ and have good and bad days in their relationship.
