Sussexes’s no-show could end ‘final strand holding family together’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to decide whether they will be joining the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey in May. According to PR expert and Go Up’s Chief Executive, Edward Coram-James, the couple not attending will essentially mean they are “de-royaling themselves”.

Mr Coram-James told “A no show by the Sussexes risks cutting off the final strand holding the family together.”

He added: “It would make the Sussexes less relevant and thus less marketable to the Public, so jeopardising their careers.”

The PR expert also added that, “from an optics point of view”, a no-show would “appear petulant”.

Mr Coram-James also claimed even if the no-show is “sincere”, there would be “very few avenues that could be gone down from a PR point of view in which the Sussexes would not come out looking ungrateful, aggressive and unwilling to accept peace offerings or olive branches.”

He explained it could mean a “fatal, irreversible blow”, particularly for the “family itself”.

The couple has been involved in an ongoing feud with the Firm for some time, and this could risk “drawing out the conflict over the long term”.

The Sussexes’ representatives confirmed earlier this month an invite had been extended to them.

A statement, released at the time, said: “I can confirm the Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the Coronation.”

The statement ended adding “an immediate decision” on whether the couple would attend will not be announced “at this time”.

The King’s Coronation is to take place on May 6, eight months after he ascended the throne following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth.

The date of the Coronation also happens to fall on the fourth birthday of Harry and Meghan’s oldest child Archie.

The couple’s two children, Archie and Lilibet, have reportedly not been invited to their grandfather’s big day.

Due to the day clashing with Archie’s birthday, royal expert Charles Rae previously told GB News this could be a “perfect excuse” for Meghan to not turn up.

“Let’s not forget that Meghan has a perfect excuse not to turn up.

“So, it may well be that she’ll stay behind and enjoy the celebrations with her son.”
