Meghan to throw ‘low-key’ party for Archie with Harry at Coronation

King Charles Coronation: Prince Harry and Prince Andrew arrive

Meghan Markle is throwing a “low-key” party celebrating son Archie’s fourth birthday today – a stark contrast from the royal ceremony taking place across the Atlantic.

The Duchess of Sussex opted to remain in California this weekend, with Harry returning to the UK for King Charles’s Coronation in what is understood to be a short trip.

The Duke walked alone into Westminster Abbey just after 10am before taking a seat on the third row between Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank and Princess Alexandra, the late Queen’s cousin.

Meghan and one-year-old daughter Lilibet will be joined by her mum Gloria Ragland and friends as she celebrates Archie’s big day.

“It’s going to be a low-key party at home,” a source told People magazine.

“They’ll have friends around them and Meghan’s mum, Doria [Ragland]. Meghan will definitely have support that weekend.”

Discussing Archie’s brotherly bond with Lilibet, the source added: “They are so sweet together. Archie loves Lili. He’s such a sweet boy.

“When she’s not around, he asks, ‘Where’s Lili?”

There was great speculation about whether or not Harry and Meghan would attend the historic event after repeated public criticism of the royal institution.

In bombshell memoir Spare, and promotional interviews upon its release, the Duke discussed his early relationship with his mother-in-law and the new Queen Consort, Camilla.

He wrote in the autobiography: “I have complex feelings about gaining a step-parent who I thought had recently sacrificed me on her personal PR altar.”

Harry also recalled private moments with brother Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales.

In one passage, he accused William, of physically attacking him during an argument over his marriage to Meghan, writing: “I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed.”

Spare became the fastest-selling nonfiction book in history upon its release in January – but it has done little to boost the Duke’s popularity back home.

Royal commentators even suggested the Sussexes could have faced backlash from members of the public if they chose to return.

But Harry landed in the UK for the Coronation on a commercial American Airlines flight on Friday morning, leaving fellow passengers stunned.

He flew in from Los Angeles on American Airlines flight AA136, which landed at London Heathrow just after 11am on Friday.
