Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are yet to publicly confirm whether they will or will not be attending the coronation, many royal enthusiasts are beginning to draw their conclusions, with some suggesting all signs pointing to a royal snub.
Ross also suggests that Prince Harry and Meghan will also have a more background role that has less public face-time as a result of the polarising reaction they received during the celebration of the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
While some pundits believe that the reunion of the Prince and the new King will serve as a great benefit for the coronation, others are not as convinced.
Wootton also went as far as to suggest that the King rescind the invitation, given that the couple ‘have had weeks’ to reply, arguing ‘if King Charles had any common sense he would say enough is enough now.’
This comes as a response to Prince Harry and Meghan’s alleged list of coronation demands, including the formal acknowledgement of their children, Princess Archie and Princess Lilibet, on their invitation, as well as permission to stand alongside the members of the royal family after the ceremony on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
Although Prince Harry and Meghan’s attitudes towards the coronation are highly speculative at this point, only time will tell if they are welcomed into the proceedings with open arms or if they will be ostracised to the back stalls of Westminster Abbey.
