The crowning of King Charles III will take place on May 6—the same day as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby Archie Harrison’s birthday. Prince Harry, along with the rest of the royal family, will be attending.
The approaching coronation of King Charles III will have Prince Harry among its royal guests.
The Duke of Sussex will attend his father’s event on May 6, a spokesman for the couple informed E! News on April 12. Meghan Markle, however, will not be making the journey abroad. According to the announcement, the Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with her children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 22 months.
On the occasion of Archie’s fourth birthday, Buckingham Palace announced that he will be crowned king.
A month ago, Harry’s spokeswoman said that Harry and Meghan, both 41, had received “email correspondence” from the king’s office in preparation for the coronation.
An official said at the time, “At this time, we will not say whether or not the Duke and Duchess will attend right away.” But now they’ve decided that only Harry should represent the family during the coronation at London’s Westminster Abbey.
The Archbishop of Canterbury will preside over the ceremony in which Charles and Camilla will be crowned king and queen. “The coronation will reflect the role of the monarch today and look to the future,” the Palace has declared. As the author puts it, “it will also be based on long-standing traditions and pageantry.”
On April 4th, further details regarding the next royal event were made public. The oldest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Prince George, is rumored to have a role in the coronation.
The nine-year-old will participate in the parade and carry the robes into Westminster Abbey as one of eight Pages of Honour. George will be assisted in this endeavor by Freddy Parker Bowles, Gus Lopes, and Louis Lopes, all grandkids of Camilla, and Arthur Elliot, a great-nephew.
