Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could snub Princess Beatrice ’s wedding as friends claim they “think they are bigger” than the Royal Family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who will officially step down as working royals on March 31, have reportedly been locked in tensions with the Yorks ever since they got married.
They reportedly didn’t invite Sarah Ferguson to their wedding reception, and then apparently sparked anger by announcing Meghan’s pregnancy at Princess Eugenie ’s wedding reception.
And just this week Harry and Meghan reportedly made a dig at Beatrice and Eugenie in a statement over their decision to scrap their “Sussex Royal” brand as part of Megxit.

A royal source said the Sussexes singled Prince Andrew and Fergie’s daughters as they explained they would be dropping the word “Royal” from their brand after crunch talks with the Palace.
The statement from Harry and Meghan, which appeared to complain that they had been treated different to other royals, read: “While there is precedent for other titled members of the Royal Family to seek employment outside of the institution, for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a 12-month review period has been put in place.”
A royal source later told the Mirror Online: “It’s pretty clear they are referencing minor royals such as Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, which is an odd association to make for two people whose associates were once claiming they had single-handedly modernised the monarchy.”

But now it has emerged Meghan and Harry, who will be stepping down as senior royals for a new, financially independent life in Canada, may cause further shock by not attending Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s wedding on May 29.
A pal told The Telegraph: "It’s fair to say the relationship (between the Sussexes and Yorks) is not what it was."
Another friend added that although Beatrice is likely to invite Harry and Meghan to her wedding at St James’ Palace, they may not attend.

"Of course Harry and Meghan will be invited (to Beatrice's wedding) but it is up to them whether or not they choose to attend,” they said.
“The trouble with Harry and Meghan is that they think they are bigger than the institution.
"It’s such a shame things have turned out like this.”
