Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Prince Harry will attend the King’s Coronation service in May.
In a statement on 12th April, the administrative headquarters of the Monarch noted that the prince will attend the coronation alone without his wife, Meghan Markle and their children.
The statement reads,
“Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6th May. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet”.
On 6th May, King Charles will be crowned at Westminster Abbey, and Prince Harry, along with over 2,000 other guests, will be in attendance. It is noteworthy that this day also marks the fourth birthday of Harry’s son, Archie.
Omid Scobie, a friend of Harry and Meghan Markle, verified that Archie’s birthday influenced the couple’s decision, and he anticipates that Harry’s visit to the UK will be brief. The Duke is expected to only attend the ceremony, which is projected to be a few hours long.
Since the release of his shocking memoir, “Spare”, Harry has not been seen with the Royal Family, making this upcoming event his first appearance alongside them.
