Robert Jobson: Sussex a ‘hindrance’ for Archie and Lilibet
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry should attend the Coronation for Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet’s sake, suggests an author and playwright. The Duke and Duchess have been invited to the historic event, which is less than a month away, but so far it’s unclear whether they will attend.
Bonnie Greer, an American born author and playwright, gave her take on what Americans thought of the Royal Family.
She said: “In a country which got rid of a king, Americans are obsessed with the Royal Family and they’ll probably be in the UK in their droves just to say they were here.”
She continued: “Meghan and Harry sort of straddle two camps, Americans call them the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Princess Meghan and Prince Harry. For a republic – for anybody – to hang on to those titles is very strange.”
Ms Greer believes that it’s “important” the couple attend the Coronation for the sake of their children Prince Archie Harrison and Princess Lilibet Diana.
She said: “I hope that they come, mainly because their children are two of the most unique people born in history. On their mother’s side, they are descended from enslaved Africans and on their father’s side they’re descended from every royal head there ever was.”
Speaking to Times Radio, the author added: “It’s important that they come, for those children’s sake. They’re the ones I’m thinking about. I think the King has already probably asked them to come and I hope they think about their children because that’s the most important element here, the kids.”
Although Meghan and Harry have been invited to the King’s Coronation on May 6, they have not yet RSVP’d to the event.
With the crowning less than a month away, previous reports suggested that the Duke and Duchess were negotiating with the Palace over what role they would play at the event.
Meghan and Harry are said to want a spot on the Buckingham Palace balcony, which will be reserved for working royals meaning Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew would be excluded.
In addition, the Coronation falls on May 6, which is Prince Archie’s fourth birthday. Meghan and Harry reportedly want this occasion acknowledged at the Coronation.
Meghan and Harry moved to California in 2020 along with their son Archie, who was born in London in 2019. Princess Lilibet was born in the United States in 2021.
