Harry and Meghan‘s appearance at the coronation of Charles III is still very uncertain. The British press, like “The Mirror”, wonders if William should not make the first step, so that Charles does not have to deal with this kind of problems on May 6.
Reunification in sight. The coronation of Charles III will take place on May 6, 2023, and two and a half months before the event, some organizational problems still arise, concerning the invitations. If it seems more and more certain that the king has decided to invite Prince Harry to attend the party, the response of the younger is still pending. According to The Mirror, the ball is in the court of his brother and his wife: “The Prince and Princess of Wales will have to give them the hand of friendship,” says a royal expert on the website of the newspaper.
According to The Mirror, Charles will be far too caught up in preparations for the coronation to think about organizing his son’s visit, and it would be nice if Prince William made the first move, just as he did at the time of Elizabeth II’s death, when he invited Harry and Meghan to go and see the crowd outside Windsor Castle. “He will only think about the stories of golden carriages and crowns, and his wife will also be crowned,” says the daily, justifying that Charles III does not have the head to deal with his family problems that day.
The non-existent role of Sussex at the coronation of Charles III
The Sussexes have not yet confirmed their attendance, but if they could still hope to be given some kind of role at the event, the great unpacking of their life at the Palace on Netflix and in bookstores, have blown away any possibility of actively participating. In early 2022, the British press wrote that the exiled couple was “tipped to play a major role in Charles’ coronation,” despite their withdrawal from the Firm and their revelatory interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021. Only, months passed, and the old demons of the Windsor clan finally resurfaced at the sudden demise of the sovereign. Their documentary Harry & Meghan on Netflix and the publication of the prince’s memoirs, entitled The Spare, have definitively buried any possibility of a major role on May 6.
