Prince Harry has informed King Charles that he will attend the King’s Coronation next month but his wife Meghan Markle will stay in California with their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. Buckingham Palace has released a statement saying they are “pleased to confirm” the Duke of Sussex’s attendance.
The statement read: “Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6th May. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”
It comes after months of speculation over whether the couple would make the trip to London for the historic event following a turbulent time for royal relations.
Harry and Meghan have severely rocked the boat with their recent spate of public interviews, podcasts, a Netflix docu-series and most recently the Duke’s memoir Spare.
Harry made a number of bombshell allegations in the book, including damning claims about his stepmother Camilla and his brother Prince William.
The book also included allegations that members of the Royal Family regularly feed the press unflattering information about other members of the Firm in exchange for positive coverage of themselves.
Meghan has likely decided to stay at home because it is their son Archie’s fourth birthday on the same date as the Coronation, though royal commentators and the British public will likely perceive the move as a snub against the King.
