Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have been invited to the coronation of King Charles III, The Sunday Times revealed on Sunday. The couple, who have lived in the United States since 2020, have yet to say whether they will be present.
According to a spokesman for the couple, quoted by the British newspaper “The Sunday Times”, Prince Harry “recently received an email from Her Majesty’s office regarding the coronation” of Charles III, which will take place on May 6.
“The immediate decision on the presence of the Duke and Duchess will not be communicated by our side,” said the spokesperson.
Contacted by the AFP agency, Buckingham Palace did not comment on the information.
The return of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to the United Kingdom to attend the coronation was a subject widely commented on by the British press, especially after the couple’s recent attacks against the royal family.
After one documentary released in December on NetflixHarry, 38 years old, published in early January a controversial memoir entitled “In the Shadow”, in which he recounts an adolescence marked by drugs and details the deterioration of relations with his father, King Charles III, and the his brother, Prince William.
“Saved” by Meghan
In a lengthy conversation with a trauma doctor posted online on Saturday, Harry again criticized the royal family. Having been born into a “divided family”, the prince now tries to raise his children Archie and Lilibet in such a way that his “traumas” are not passed on to them.
“All my life, since I was young, I felt a little different from the rest of my family,” he told doctor Gabor Maté. “I felt strange” in this environment “and I know my mother felt the same way,” he added, referring to Princess Diana.
According to Harry, his wife Meghan is “an exceptional being” who came from “a different world”, “saved him” and “helped him move forward”.
