Dr Shola hails Meghan’s ’empowering’ rejection of Coronation invite

Harry and Meghan have had ‘rude awakening’ in the US

Meghan Markle’s “empowering” decision to skip King Charles III’s Coronation next month has earned her staunch praise from persistent Royal Family critic Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu. The lawyer and human rights activist took to Twitter minutes after Buckingham Palace confirmed Prince Harry would attend the event on May 6 without his wife.

Meghan will remain behind at the family home in Montecito, California, with son Prince Archie – who celebrates his fourth birthday that day – and one-year-old daughter Lilibet.

Dr Mos-Shogbamimu tweeted: “How empowering for Meghan Markle to say No to Britain’s most powerful family.

“A family that held her in contempt and constantly fed her to vultures.”

Any wife with “bad in-laws” would know Meghan “just took back control”, she added.

She added: “I’m here for Meghan not giving a damn what anyone thinks.”

Referencing the clash of dates, Dr Mos-Shogbamimu said: “Putting #Coronation on Archie’s birthday was thoughtless & avoidable in my opinion.

“The Palace and King Charles just didn’t care.

“#HarryandMeghan put their family first and I’m glad Meghan isn’t tap dancing to societal expectations of what ‘woman’ she should be. She’s a mother first.”

Harry, who outlined his difficult relationship with the royal family in his Netflix documentary and autobiography Spare, will witness Charles and his stepmother The Queen being crowned in Westminster Abbey.

The Palace said in a brief statement on Wednesday: “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.”

The news puts an end to feverish speculation about whether the Sussexes would attend, but will undoubtedly result in Meghan being accused of snubbing the monarch.

Archewell, Harry and Meghan’s charitable foundation, issued a similar statement to the Palace confirming the duke will join guests at the Coronation.

Harry’s attendance will see him appear in a public setting with Charles, Camilla, his brother the Prince of Wales, sister-in-law the Princess of Wales and the rest of his family for the first time since the publication of his book.
