Prince Harry to attend Coronation without Meghan Markle

The Coronation is on the same day as Archie’s birthday.

Prince Harry will be at King Charles’ Coronation, Buckingham Palace announced Wednesday, but Meghan Markle isn’t coming.

The palace ended months of speculation by announcing Harry will be at Westminster Abbey for the historic event on May 6.

Meghan is to stay in California to look after the couple’s children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

The couple rocked the royals with their Netflix documentary, then Harry unsettled things further with his autobiography, Spare.

The Coronation falls on the same day as Archie’s fourth birthday.

The Palace said in a statement: “Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that the Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6th May. “

“The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”


It is said Archie’s birthday played a big part in the decision for Meghan to stay home.

Harry is expected to make a whistle-stop trip to the UK for the big event.
