In March, three months before King Charles III’s coronation, a spokeswoman for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stated that the pair had received “correspondence” regarding the ceremony.
King Charles III will be coronated soon, and the specifics of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s invitation to the ceremony have been made public.
A staff member of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed to NBC News that they had received “email contact” from the King’s office in regards to the upcoming coronation. There were three months between this and the meeting of the royals.
A spokesman told the media outlet, “We won’t disclose whether or not the Duke and Duchess will attend straight immediately.”
The press team at E! News has reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment but has not yet received a response.
Charles will be crowned on May 6 at Westminster Abbey in London. In September 2022, following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, he was crowned king. The Archbishop of Canterbury will preside over the event, which will also serve to crown Camilla as Queen Consort.
Royal family members including Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton are expected to show up. But, Archie Harrison, Harry, and Meghan’s son celebrating his fourth birthday today as well. He and his parents and younger sister Lilibet “Lili” Diana, who is 21 months old, live in California.
Back in January, Harry expressed uncertainty about whether or not he would attend, saying, “A lot can happen between now and then.”
Around that time, Harry stated, “But the door is always open,” in an interview with ITV. The initiative has been given to them. There’s a lot to discuss, so I’m crossing my fingers that they can find some time to meet face-to-face.
That will be the first time Harry and Meghan, both 41, have seen Charles in person since the publication of Harry’s devastating book, Spare. He detailed his struggles and the strain on his relationships with family members.
In an interview with People, Harry stated, “I want people to read my memoirs and come to their conclusions.” I don’t feel comfortable sharing my opinion with anyone, not even my closest relatives. It’s a real account of my life, ups, and downs included.
