Prince William aims cold dig at Harry and Meghan in Coronation speech

Prince William appeared to make a subtle dig at his little brother Prince Harry in his Coronation Concert speech.

The Prince of Wales took to the stage in front of 20,000 people to acknowledge all sorts of parties, from the works of the UK to his “pa” the King.

His impressive speech even referenced the late Her Majesty The Queen, who he said would be a “proud mum” seeing her son’s Coronation.

Two people, however, may not have fared so well in the warming words – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, The Mirror reports.

Prince William said: "For all that celebrations are magnificent, at the heart of the pageantry is a simple message – service."

When Harry and Meghan stepped away from royal working life, Buckingham Palace released a statement saying: "Following conversations with the Duke, the Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of the Royal Family it is not possible to continue with responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service."

The comment was followed up on by the Duke and Duchesses’ own statement, where they said: "We can all live a life of service. Service is universal."

William's Coronation Concert speech has since been dissected and analysed by the masses online – and many feel the reference to “service” was a direct dig at his sibling.

Later in his speech, William would later double down on his own commitment to service, saying: "I commit myself to serve you all. King, Country and Commonwealth. God Save The King!"

One person said: "‘Service….’ ‘To serve…..’ ‘served…..’ Wonder who that was a dig at….. "

Another wrote on Twitter: “‘Service is universal’ hmmm for 1 hr a week for #PrinceHarryandMeghan”.
