The Duke and Dutchess of Sussex are expected to receive an invite to The King’s coronation next year, despite all the claims thrown at the monarchy in the couple’s controversial Netflix documentary. Although invites have not been officially sent out yet, Charles has opened his arms to the embittered pair and said they are welcome to come, insiders reportedly told the Daily Mail.
Insiders told the publication that with less than five months until the Coronation on May 6, King Charles III is determined to avoid being side-tracked by all the family drama. The King is reportedly hurt by all the criticism of the family in the documentary but has not given up hope on the two of the and doesn’t want to strip their titles.
One source said: “Harry is his son and His Majesty will always love him. While things are difficult at the moment, the door will always be left ajar.”
In the last three episodes of the couple’s documentary, Meghan & Harry, all sorts of claims were made about Charles and other senior Royals. Harry even accused his father of being a liar when they met at Sandringham to discuss details about the couple’s future in January 2020.
He said: “It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me and my father say things that just simply weren’t true and my grandmother quietly sit there and sort of take it all in.”
The pair also made some controversial claims that senior royals were jealous and out to get Meghan because of how much coverage she obtained from the media.
They claimed negative stories were planted in the media as part of these alleged attempts to bring down Meghan. Harry suggested that other members of the family became tense when Meghan was “stealing the limelight” as it was expected that people “marrying in” the family should take a back seat.
After the documentary, Buckingham Palace refused to comment on all the unsubstantiated claims made against the institution and the people in it.
And plans are moving fast when it comes His Majesty’s coronation which is set to balance tradition with Charles’ move toward a modern, slimmed-down monarchy.
According to the publication, The King and Queen Consort, Camilla went to Westminster Abey recently as part of an extensive reconnaissance for the event.
It’s also understood that Camilla has chosen her crown, although it’s not confirmed which one she will choose although many people think it’s likely to be the State Diadem — the crown Elizabeth II wore at the State Opening of Parliament.
Despite Charles’ openness towards Harry and Meghan, many public figures have aired their dismay about the two potentially attending the Coronation.
Former Cabinet Minister David Mellor said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “categorically shouldn’t come”.
The King is thought to be hurt by all the criticism of the family in the documentary but has not given up hope on the two of the and doesn’t want to strip their titles.
“They make money out of selling their family down the river. I think it should be made clear that the British people do not want them there,” said Mellor.
Iain Duncan Smith similarly questioned why the couple would ever want to go “if they dislike the Royal Family so much”.
One source told the Daily Mail it would be “utterly hypocritical” for them to turn up at the Coronation, considering everything Charles and the other family members have been subjected to.
Before the coronation, Harry’s book Spare is expected to come out in January and will include more claims about his childhood and his experience with the Royal Family.
But the publication reported that one source said Charles is unlikely to remove his invitation, whether or not more upsetting claims come out.
Express.co.uk readers have shown where they stand on the matter. Between Friday, November 25 and December 6, two days before Meghan & Harry was out on Netflix, the Express asked readers: “Should Meghan and Harry be invited to King Charles’ coronation?”
A total of 11,443 responded and roughly 93 percent — 10,658 people — said “no”, Meghan and Harry should not be invited.
Only six percent, 698 people, said “yes” the couple should be invited.
