Footage of the moment showed that only two people in the group of royal mourners sitting alongside or behind King Charles appeared not to be singing “God Save The King”.

One was, of course, King Charles himself – and the other was Harry.

When the footage was posted to Twitter, opinion was divided.

“Noticed that … He couldn’t be any more disrespectful if he tried,” one person fumed.

“I noticed, as will have many others. I have utter contempt for him,” another wrote.

“So much for supporting the King!” exclaimed a third.

Some argued that he was probably too overcome with emotion, or perhaps was very quietly mouthing the words under his breath.

“To be fair it seems like his lips are moving but very slightly,” one Twitter user wrote.

“He was actually singing. But you just didn’t want to see it!” one Harry supporter raged.

Another Twitter user observed that Prince Edward didn’t seem to be singing either.

“I think sometimes it’s hard to sing when you’re emotional,” they observed.

Others joked that the words had changed from “God Save The Queen” and perhaps he needed a little extra time to learn the new lyrics.

Many other Twitter users noted that it was hard to tell if Harry’s wife Meghan was singing, because her face was obscured behind a giant candle.

During coverage of the funeral service, one camera angle from inside the abbey obscured her face because a giant yellow candle was burning in front of it.

“I don’t want to be a conspiracy theorist but that candle is totally blocking the view of Meghan,” the Twitter user captioned the photo.

The image prompted a flurry of bemused comments, mostly by people who seemed to dislike the Duchess of Sussex.

“On the sad occasion of Her Majesty’s Funeral, I am comforted in the knowledge that Meghan’s head is obscured by a candle,” one person wrote.

“Hiding Meghan Markle behind a massive candle was a genius call,” another non-fan wrote.

Harry, Meghan and the rest of the royal family have travelled from central London to Windsor Castle, where Queen Elizabeth will be buried next to Prince Philip in the King George VI Memorial Chapel.
