Like many couples, we imagine months of meticulous planning went into every detail of Harry and Meghan's big day, but, according to Harry, the Prince of Princess of Wales ignored his wishes at their wedding reception.

After exchanging vows at St George's Chapel the Duke and Duchess enjoyed a lunchtime reception at Windsor Castle hosted by the late Queen Elizabeth II. At the sit-down meal, which saw guests dine on pea and mint risotto and ten-hour slow-roasted Windsor pork belly, the newlyweds had chosen to incorporate an American tradition and asked couples to sit together.
However, William and Kate's table was the only one that failed to follow suit, as Harry claims that his brother and sister-in-law changed the place cards at the last minute in order to ensure spouses were seated separately – which the Prince and Princess denied.

Brides and grooms often ask couples to sit separately in order to encourage guests to mingle, and Harry admitted that he didn't enjoy being forced to sit on the opposite side of the table to his then-girlfriend Meghan at Kate's sister Pippa Middleton's wedding to James Matthews in 2017.
Harry's book states William accused him of changing seats to suit his own agenda at Pippa's wedding, but he insisted that although he wished he could have spent more time with Meghan, who reportedly flew from America to the UK to attend the celebration, he respected Pippa's wishes and was forced to look at her through a large flower arrangement.
