Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not yet responded to the invitation to attend King Charles III’s coronation. If they respond positively, the experience promises not to be entirely pleasant.. Relations between the Dukes of Sussex and the royal family are at their worst. Despite this, Harry and Meghan have made a series of demands that may not be accepted by The Firm.
If the Sussexes become part of the 2,000 Abbey attendees they will be treated differently than other royals and will not have an active role in the event. They will also need to follow the rules and dress according to the code.
King Carlos III wants his two sons at his coronation, although they will have different roles. William, the heir to the throne, will have a leading role, while Harry will not even be part of the procession.much like his disgraced uncle, Prince Andrew.
“With the exception of Prince William, at this coronation the peers of the realm will not pay homage to the new king, so it is unlikely that Harry will have to kneel“, explains historian Tessa Dunlop.
As was the case at Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee service at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Harry and Meghan would have secondary seats at the ceremony. In the same way, the members of the royalty have said that there will be no affection with them and that the treatment will be cold.
A source told the Daily Mail what “many relatives will turn their backs on them. I hope they are sitting in Iceland. Many family members simply want nothing more to do with them. If they have to see them at the coronation, so be it, but they don’t want to socialize with them.”
The Sussexes have reportedly requested to appear on the famous balcony of Buckingham Palace with their children and the rest of the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II banned them for last year’s Platinum Jubilee and told them it was reserved for active performance in office.
Everything seems to indicate that royalty will not agree to the requirement and the Sussexes, along with Prince Andrew and his daughters, Beatriz and Eugenia, they must stay inside the Palace and without appearing.
