Prince Andrew’s ‘awkward’ remark about Harry and Meghan before Eugenie’s wedding

The Duke of York made an awkward comment about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ahead of Princess Eugenie's wedding.

The remark, which has recently resurfaced, made it seem 'like competition' between the two royal big days.

Prince Harry tied the knot with Meghan Markle in 2018 and just five months later his cousin Princess Eugenie wed her now-husband Jack Brooksbank.

But both weddings at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle were broadcast live on TV with Eugenie's nuptials being shown on ITV show This Morning.

Ahead of his youngest daughter's big day, Prince Andrew gave an interview on This Morning and talked about how his daughter's wedding would be different from his nephew Harry's.

However, viewers accused him of making it a competition over who had the most guests after Eugenie and Jack invited 850 guests compared to Harry and Meghan's 600.

The Duke said: "It will not be the same as the previous one that was held in May. This is not a public wedding, this is meant to be a family wedding.

"There'll be a few more people than most people have. There are a few more than Harry had, but that's just the nature of Eugenie and Jack – they've got so many friends that they need a church of that size to fit them all in."

At the time, one Twitter user said of the weddings: "So seems like a competition for him."

Another wrote: "Throwing some shade there Duke" while one commented: "Hum! So Harry have (sic) not got so many friends."

While another claimed that he was "throwing shade all over the place".

However, Eugenie's wedding was certainly a day to remember, with a celebrity guest list, a stunning wedding dress, and a decent amount of social media ban rule-breaking by the guests.

The bride and groom couldn't have looked more in love, beaming throughout the public part of the day.

However, almost 12million people tuned in to watch the Duke and Duchess of Sussex exchange vows live on their big day, and nearly 30million US fans watched the event afterwards, reports CNBC.
