Prince Harry to Attend King Charles’ Coronation, Meghan Markle to Remain in the US with Children
Prince Harry will be attending the coronation of his father, King Charles III, next month, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace. However, his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will not accompany him and will remain in the United States with their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
The decision for Meghan to skip the coronation has sparked speculation. Some have seen it as a final confirmation of the strained relationship between Meghan and the Royal Family. In recent months, Prince Harry has made several public statements and revelations about his family in his memoir “Spare” and during interviews, which has caused controversy and raised tensions within the royal household.
It will be Prince Harry’s first public appearance in the United Kingdom since the publication of his memoir, in which he made incendiary accusations against his family members and detailed his split from the royal family. His attendance at the coronation will likely attract media and public attention. It comes at a time of heightened scrutiny and speculation about the relationship between Prince Harry and the rest of the royal family.
The coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla is a historic occasion, with three days of celebrations planned across the country, in which the public will be invited to participate. The ceremony will be held at Westminster Abbey on May 6, and Prince Charles and Queen Camilla will arrive in procession from Buckingham Palace. The palace must still specify which royal family members will be part of the procession and balcony appearance.
Meghan’s decision to skip the coronation has been met with mixed reactions. Some see it as a missed opportunity for her to show support for her husband and his family during an important event. In contrast, others view it as a continuation of her strained relationship with the royal family. In addition, Meghan’s popularity in the UK has been a subject of debate, with recent polls showing that she is liked by a small percentage of Britons and disliked by a significant portion.
Some may see Prince Harry’s attendance at the coronation without Meghan as a sign of the challenges and tensions he faces as he tries to navigate his role as a member of the royal family while asserting his independence and speaking out about his experiences. However, it remains to be seen how the public and the royal family will receive his presence at the coronation and what impact it may have on the ongoing narrative surrounding the Sussexes and their relationship with the rest of the royal family.
