Harry and Meghan ‘will be invited to King Charles’s coronation but are not expected to attend’ as it would be ‘very difficult for them after all that has been said’, royal sources say
- The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to be invited to the coronation
- But royal sources suggest they’ll find a reason not to go after the memoir’s fallout
- Buckingham Palace has not yet finalized the guest list for the ceremony on May 6
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to “find a reason not to attend King Charles’s coronation,” though they are expected to be invited despite Prince Harry’s memoirs.
It would be very “difficult for them” to attend, a royal source close to the family said after “what has been said”.
The couple are not expected to play a formal role in the event, which will see the king formally crowned after his ascension in September, following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Sources say hopes for a reconciliation with the Sussexes are limited as the Duke of Sussex remains ‘kidnapped by a cult of psychotherapy and Meghan’.

The fallout from the release of Prince Harry’s long-awaited memoir continues as the Duke of Sussex has repeatedly insisted he would like a relationship with his family.
A royal source said the king does not expect his son to attend his May 6 event.
The source explained that the family expects the Sussexes to politely give a reason for not attending.
“The family will offer the invitation, but it would be very difficult for Harry and Meghan to be there given everything that has been said in the interviews and the book.
“The family expects Harry and Meghan to find a reason not to be there,” the source says The independent.

Senior members of the royal family remain convinced that reconciliation with Harry will not be possible as he has effectively been ‘kidnapped’, the source claimed
The palace has yet to publish plans for the elaborate ceremony and no agreement has yet been reached on the guest list.
Organizers said the graceful event will “reflect the monarch’s current role” and “look to the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.”
Prince Harry has said in a number of interviews that he would like to reconcile with his brother and father.
This is despite accusing his brother of physically assaulting him and describing Queen Camilla as a ‘bad guy’.
Senior royals don’t believe reconciliation will be possible as long as Prince Harry remains basically “kidnapped by a cult of psychotherapy and Meghan,” the source added.
