King Charles III’s coronation is just a few weeks away. Amid this, the looming question was whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be attending the much-talked-about royal event on May 6, Saturday, at Westminster Abbey, England. Last week, this question was answered when Buckingham Palace released a statement announcing that While the Duke of Sussex will be in attendance, the Duchess of Sussex will be skipping the coronation and will instead stay back with their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet in California. Later, it was revealed that Meghan will be celebrating her son Archie’s 4th birthday on the same day. But, how does King Charles feel about Meghan skipping the coronation, after all? Read on to find out.

Prince Harry on King Charles III’s coronation
Back in January 2023, during an interview with ITV, Prince Harry was asked if he wanted to attend his father’s coronation ceremony. “If you are invited to the Coronation, will you come?” ITV News anchor Tom Bradby asked the Prince. To this, he responded, “There’s a lot that can happen between now and then. But the door is always open. The ball is in their court. There’s a lot to be discussed and I really hope that they’re willing to sit down and talk about it.”
The interview came after the release of Prince Harry’s bombshell memoir Spare where he made shocking claims about the royal family, and slammed his father King Charles and his brother Prince William.
