On May 6th the coronation of King Charles III takes place in Westminster Abbey in London. instead of. What is currently being talked about the most: Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, but more precisely the question of whether the two will come to the coronation. The Sussexes are still making it exciting.

Talk host Oprah Winfrey, who exclusively interviewed the two in early 2021, had advice for Meghan and Harry. “I think they should do what they think is best for themselves and their families. (…) That’s what ultimately comes down to it,” Winfrey said on CBS’s “Morning Show.” The Sussexes didn’t ask her for advice, the TV icon revealed. With her advice, Winfrey probably wants to advise them not to be influenced by family or public pressure.

It probably doesn’t matter whether the two come or not – they will be guaranteed attention either way. Buckingham Palace is reportedly expecting Meghan and Harry to appear. In one of his promotional interviews in January, the prince affirmed that he still believed in the monarchy. So it’s quite possible that he would like to be there when his father is crowned. At the same time, the private calendar could also get in the way. Because on May 6th, son Archie will also celebrate his 4th birthday. As British media recently reported, Archie and Lilibet are not invited to the coronation. You are considered too young.

Prince Williams and Princess Kate’s older children, George and Charlotte, will attend the ceremony at Westminster Abbey. Whether the youngest son Prince Louis is also there, William and Kate supposedly want to decide first.

The guest list isn’t the only thing King Charles might be concerned about right now. In Great Britain, the coronation planning triggered a discussion. After all, the country’s citizens are suffering from the devastating rise in the cost of living. Royal expert Omid Scobie, who is close to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, expressed his opinion in an article on Yahoo News. He thinks Charles’ plan is “hypocritical”. In his Christmas speech, the king finally turned to his people and offered them support.

“In September, palace sources confirmed that Charles wanted a ceremony that not only reflected his vision of a more agile and modern monarchy, but was also ‘less expensive’ given the country’s ongoing economic woes,” Scobie wrote. “Though three months later, although a coronation committee presented its plans, the king and ministers decided to scrap the meager celebrations and have a big celebration instead,” the author says. While one of the longest crises of all time is causing suffering in Great Britain, a bad sign for Scobie.
