Harry ‘will likely have to cope with royal hostility’ during

Prince Harry and Meghan ‘selfish on every decision’ says Kelly

Prince Harry will likely have to cope with “hostility” from some members of the Royal Family when he attends the Coronation of King Charles III next month, it has been claimed. The Duke of Sussex will make the trip to see his father officially crowned as King, but it will be without his wife Meghan Markle, who will remain in California with the couple’s children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. It will also be the first time Harry comes face-to-face with members of his own family – many of whom he made bombshell claims against in his tell-all memoir, Spare.

Pauline Maclaran, Professor of Marketing and Consumer Research at Royal Holloway University, believes the couple could have faced the fury of the British public if they had attended the Coronation as a “power couple”.

But while she believes many people still feel “slightly affectionate” for Harry as opposed to Meghan, the prince could still face awkward encounters with members of his own family.

Professor Maclaran told Express.co.uk: “If they attended the Coronation as a couple, they would find it very difficult because I think they are likely to be booed. There is a lot of hostile feeling in the UK, particularly since their recent comments.

Harry coming on his own will dilute that because although he still runs the risk of maybe facing some hostility, there won’t be nearly as much as if they came as a power couple, which would have attracted much more attention.

The fact Meghan isn’t coming will dilute the hostility. Many people still feel slightly affectionate for Harry and coming on his own will see him garner more sympathy.

“He will also be much more discreet because cameras won’t always be on him the way they would be if they had come as a couple. This saves them from being embarrassed from the hostility they would be likely to receive.”

But the expert warned the same sympathy might not be as forthcoming from some members of the Royal Family.

She continued: “Harry will likely have to cope with the probable hostility of some of his family but there are certain members that support him.

“At the end of the day, he is the King’s son, and it would have looked bad for him and Meghan had they not attended.”

Professor Maclaran believes it will be “very interesting” to see how Harry copes without Meghan during his Coronation trip as he is “extremely reliant” on her.

He could turn to two of his closest “supporters” in the Royal Family but in any case, is “still bound to find that very awkward”.

The expert added: How Harry will cope on his own at the Coronation will be very interesting because he is extremely reliant on Meghan.

“He will look to his supporters, from the likes of Beatrice and Eugenie and people who are likely to be less hostile to him but he is still bound to find that very awkward.

“On the other hand, he has always been the one that has given all these revelations and wants to sit down and talk.

“For the royals, this will be the easiest route for them too because they will probably have a show of unity and not cold shoulder Harry too much just to make it all pass without a hitch on the day. That would have been harder if Meghan had attended.”

Harry’s attendance will see him appear in a public setting for the first time with Charles, Camilla, the Prince of Wales, Princess of Wales and the rest of his family since he lambasted the royals in his memoir.

In the tell-all book, which was published in January, the Duke of Sussex took a swipe at Charles’s parenting and accused older brother William of physically attacking him.

He also branded Camilla Queen Consort “dangerous” and his father’s wife for sacrificing him on her own “personal PR altar”.

The prince also alleged it was William and Kate who encouraged him to notoriously dress up as a Nazi at a fancy dress party several years ago.

The inflammatory claims from Harry were seen as being extremely damaging to his already fragile relationship with his brother, and further straining relations with the King and the rest of the family.

Earlier this year, Harry and Meghan were also asked earlier to vacate their Frogmore Cottage home in the UK – a move that was sanctioned by the King.
