Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. The two young royals may not be invited to the coronation of King Charles III in May.
They’ve received their royal titles, but one thing Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet haven’t got is an invitation to their grandfather’s coronation – and it may not be forthcoming, according to reports.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, while parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were invited to King Charles’ coronation on May 6, their two young children were not.
When asked if the children, aged 3 and 1, were on the guest list, a royal source said the couple were “very young”.
Harry and Meghan, who have infamously defied the royal family after “stepping back” from royal life in a move now known as Megxit, have yet to confirm whether they will attend the historic event.
Some have suggested in The Telegraph that Archie and Lilibet’s participation will be discussed after Harry and Meghan make their own decisions about whether to attend.
A source told the Daily Mail that the couple should not expect a warm welcome if they do arrive.
“Many relatives will give them a cold shoulder. “I hope they hang out in Iceland,” one friend told me.
Prince William’s two children, the future monarch himself, Prince George, 9, and his sister, Princess Charlotte, 7, are expected to attend, while Queen Consort Camilla’s grandchildren will play an official role in the ceremony.
