Palace preparing for Prince Harry, Meghan to attend Charles’ coronation: report

Buckingham Palace is preparing for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to attend King Charles III’s forthcoming coronation.

Palace staff have begun “organizing logistics for the historic occasion” and “have been instructed to include the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their program for May 6,” sources told the Daily Mail on Thursday.

However, “there has been no word” on whether the couple has formally accepted the invitation.

“Harry and Meghan are being factored into all of the planning … the cars, the seating plans, dining arrangements, everything,” an insider told the outlet.

“No one knows for certain whether this means they have definitely accepted — it could, of course, be just in case they do — but it’s clearly not a ‘no.’”

The source added, “The staff are certainly working on the expectation they are coming. These kind of arrangements have to be made well in advance.”

Last week, a spokesperson for Harry, 38, and the “Suits” alum, 41, confirmed that they had received invitations to Charles’ coronation via email, adding, “An immediate decision on whether the Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time.”

Charles, 74, ascended to the throne after his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died last September. She was 96.

The monarch is set to be formally crowned on May 6, a date fans believe would cause conflict for the Sussexes as it lands on their son Archie’s 4th birthday.

Tensions have been high between the royal family and Harry and Markle after the Invictus Games founder and his wife stepped away from their royal duties in 2020.

Additionally, Harry released his bombshell memoir, “Spare,” which detailed his strained relationships with his older brother, Prince William, and their father.

In one excerpt of the book, the dad of two wrote that Charles would often make jokes about Harry’s “real father.”

“Pa liked telling stories, and this was one of the best in his repertoire. He’d always end with a burst of philosophizing … Who knows if I’m really the Prince of Wales? Who knows if I’m even your real father?” he wrote in the bestseller.

Harry added, “He’d laugh and laugh, though it was a remarkably unfunny joke, given the rumor circulating just then that my actual father was one of Mummy’s former lovers: Major James Hewitt. One cause of this rumor was Major Hewitt’s flaming ginger hair, but another cause was sadism.”

The former British Army captain also recalled a time when William, 40, allegedly got physical with him during an argument, in which the Prince of Wales called Markle “difficult,” “rude” and “abrasive.”

“It all happened so fast. So very fast. He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor,” he wrote.

“I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out.”

The royal family has not publicly addressed Harry’s book.
