- Prince Harry will attend the coronation alone
- The Buckingham Palace announced the news
- Princess Meghan will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
- The coronation is slated for 6th May at Westminster Abbey.
Prince Harry is confirmed to attend King Charles III’s coronation without Meghan the Duchess of Sussex.
There had been tense speculation about whether the couple would travel to the coronation – but according to Buckingham Palace, Prince Harry will attend alone and Princess Meghan will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
Prince Harry will join over 2,000 guests at the event that is slated for 6th May at Westminster Abbey.
This will be Harry’s first reunion with members of the royal family since he released his blockbuster memoir, “Spare”, which vividly revealed the extent of family tensions.
Prince Harry and Meghan, who live in California in the United States, had been contacted by email more than a month ago about attending the coronation but now it’s announced that the prince will attend alone.
However the decision for Meghan not to attend will be seen as part of ongoing, unresolved tensions between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Royal Family.
As he is no longer a "working royal", one would wonder the part he will be playing at the coronation ceremony. It's expected that Prince William, as Prince of Wales, will have a prominent role in the coronation - and after Prince Harry's dramatic account of their falling out there will be attention on the two brothers coming together again.
As part of the coronation event, there is a long weekend of public events and concerts, which the Royal Family will be expected to attend.
