Prince Harry to Attend King Charles' Coronation Without Meghan Markle

Prince Harry will attend the coronation of his father, King Charles III, but Meghan Markle will not join him. 

The Buckingham Palace confirmed Harry's attendance at the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. 

According to People the statement also confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. The decision was reportedly influenced by their son Archie’s fourth birthday, which also falls on the same day as the coronation. 

The confirmation of Prince Harry's attendance came after weeks of speculation and reports of tension within the Royal Family due to the publication of his book, which revealed private conversations with his father and brother. Harry’s attendance comes despite the rift within the House of Windsor, prompted by Harry’s decision to reveal family secrets in his bestselling book, Spare. 

The book also included allegations that members of the Royal Family regularly feed the press unflattering information about other members of the House of Windsor in exchange for positive coverage of themselves. 

Harry and Meghan relocated to California in 2020 after stepping back as working members of the Royal Family, and their attendance at the coronation was uncertain until this recent announcement.

The coronation will take place in front of members of the Royal Family, world leaders, public figures, and 450 charity and community group members.
