Speaking on TalkTV, royal commentator Afua Hagan suggested the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could be sidelined at the King Charles’ coronation, which is set to take place on their young son’s fourth birthday, because Charles will “want to focus of the day to be on himself and obviously, Queen Camilla”.

The royal expert claimed told TalkTV that the King will “probably want to keep Harry side”.

She added that, despite this, we “shouldn’t expect [Harry and Meghan] to play a role”.

She noted that this will be partly because “people will find it so controversial” and because King will want the “focus” to be on himself, as well as Camilla.

She added that even though the couple may not “play a role”, we should expect to “see them there”, despite them not being working royals.

Ms Hagan stated that Harry and Meghan would ideally attend, simply, “as family”. 

Following the announcement, earlier this month, that the date of the coronation was set for May 6, fans of Meghan and Harry expressed their anger at the chosen date.

The anger expressed was because May 6 also happens to be the couple’s son Archie’s birthday.

American royal commentator Lee Cohen recently spoke to express.co.uk about Meghan and Harry’s attendance at the coronation next year.

He added that the date would likely have been chosen was “not necessarily in any connection to Archie’s birthday”, but simply that it “fit the calendar”.

Last month, the couple arrived in the UK to attend various events for charities “close to their hearts”.

The couple’s visit was extended following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The couple were in attendance at the late monarch’s funeral, which took place on September 19 at Westminster Abbey.
