Prince Harry Set to Attend King Charles III Without Meghan Markle

This Wednesday, Buckingham Palace announces that Prince Harry will attend King Charles III’s coronation without his wife, Meghan Markle.

The Palace revealed this morning that it is pleased to confirm that “The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”

According to Harper’s Bazaar, May 6th is also Prince Archie’s fourth birthday, and Megan decided to spend the weekend celebrating with him and his sister. Just a week ago, the couple received an invitation via email but declined to disclose at the time whether or not they would take part. 

Back in 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan relocated to California after stepping back as senior royals and were most recently with the rest of the royal family in the U.K for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. Harry also made a visit to the U.K last month, attending London’s High Court for a legal case where sued the Associated Newspaper Ltd for illegal information gathering. 

Despite the estranged relationship between Harry and the royal family, Harry’s motivation to attend was that he “wanted to be at the service to support his father at this important moment in his life.” 

A source close to the royal household tells People’s Magazine, “It is such a momentous occasion for Charles, and he would want his son to be at the connotation to witness it. He would like to have Harry back in the family. If they don’t sort it out, it will always be part of the King’s reign and how he has left his family disjointed.”

While Prince Harry is supportive of his father’s accomplishments, he is no longer a “working royal”; therefore, it is unclear what role he might play in the coronation ceremony.
