Prince Harry and Meghan Markle face a “conundrum” over the King’s Coronation as they look to stay relevant in the US, according to Princess Diana’s former butler. The Duke of Sussex, 38, has been invited to King Charles III’s coronation in May where he will likely receive an “icy” reception sitting among family he has “pushed under the bus”, Paul Burrell has said.

The 64-year-old served as the Princess of Wales’s butler for 10 years until her death in 1997. He believes the Sussexes’s “conundrum” revolves around their identity as royals, given their criticism of the Royal Family.

“If Harry comes to the coronation, it will make him relevant again because he will have a tale to tell again,” he said.

“But can you imagine how isolated he will feel being sat in Westminster Abbey amongst his family who he’s pushed under the bus.

“It’s going to be quite icy and I think that’s what the media are looking for, they are looking for those cracks, that confrontation and I think that might be a distraction from the actual reason we’re watching the coronation.”

Speaking on behalf of Slingo, Burrell added: “I think they have to be relevant and they have to be royal because if they’re not royal, what makes them different to anyone else.

“I think that’s the whole fascination about them in America. I think Americans are so fascinated by this splintered pack of the Royal Family coming to live in America, they are royals as far as America’s concerned.

“If they lost their titles and they were not royal anymore they wouldn’t be as relevant would they.

“What is ironic is their USP is royal and yet they don’t want to be royal. It’s a bit of a conundrum.”

Staff at Buckingham Palace have been told to make preparations on the assumption that the Sussex royals will be present at Charles’ coronation, according to the Telegraph.

In February, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Us Weekly the couple will still be welcomed despite interviews and criticising the Firm.

“I feel that they’ll definitely be invited,” he said, “but I think that the dynamic is changing.”

However, presenter Piers Morgan slammed the Duke and Duchess, accusing the couple of attempting to make “everything the royals do about them”.

“I think we’re all, probably like you, getting a little bit tired of the Meghan and Harry rodeo which seems to try and make everything the royals do about them,” he said.
