Additionally, Prince Harry also failed to make an appearance over a dispute with the Home Office amid security concerns.

There's no doubt that the Royals are finding it increasingly more difficult to keep themselves in positive headlines with seemingly endless scandals tarnishing their image time again, however, many onlookers are growing disturbed their shameful conduct in life is being whitewashed after their death.

Prince Philip is hailed by some as a role model of British values on the world stage. Others, however, see him very differently.
