With three weeks to go until the coronation of Charles III, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly still not responded to the invitation. With no response from them, a close source told the Mirror that the organisers of the festivities were “exasperated”.
The list of diplomatic guests has been less complicated to manage than the arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. With less than a month to go before the coronation of Charles III, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have still not announced their arrival in London on 6 May.
And this, even though the announcement was sent several weeks ago. With no response from them, the organisers of the ceremony are trying, at best, to plan the festivities from “seating arrangements, to transport, to VIP security”, explains The Mirror.
But without confirmation from Archie and Lilibet Diana‘s parents, none of the plans can be “approved”. So as the big day approaches, organisers are said to be “exasperated”, according to close sources. While many at Buckingham Palace are expecting the couple to come, one of them reminds our reporters that the coronation falls on their son’s fourth birthday. An event that could push them to stay in the United States.
Meghan and Harry in “discussion” with Buckingham Palace for the coronation?
“Of course, they will be given more time, but in all honesty, everyone is exasperated by their attitude,” he said. But “unless they say otherwise”, the organisers expect them to be among the 2,000 guests at the coronation. “Plans are being finalised, as several sources have told Page Six. There have been lengthy discussions between the Sussexes and the palace, there is a time crunch on this, of course.”
He added: “It’s such a historic event and we hope Harry and Meghan will be there. So if Prince William‘s brother decides to decline the invitation to the coronation, it could be taken by his family as an “ultimate affront”, with “no turning back”, author Tom Quinn told The Express. If Harry doesn’t come, he will never be forgotten,” he insisted.
