The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are possibly contemplating a trip across the pond for the coronation this spring, however, their attendance may not be welcomed by senior members of the royal family. While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been in receipt of “email correspondence” regarding the ceremony on May 6th, they have remained tight-lipped about whether they will be present or not.
An anonymous source has hinted that if the couple do make an appearance, their reception could be frosty. The possibility of a cold shoulder from the royal family has added an element of unpredictability to the already tense situation.
In addition, the Duke of York is said to harbor feelings of “resentment” towards his brother, the King, concerning a dispute over their late mother’s inheritance. According to reports, King Charles inherited the entirety of Queen Elizabeth II’s £650 million estate due to a 1993 agreement, but has not shared the wealth with his siblings, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward.
This latest news follows reports that the Sussexes’ children, Archie and Lilibet, have yet to be invited to the coronation. It is speculated that their attendance will be dependent on the couple’s decision to attend the ceremony.
In response to the situation, a royal insider stated, “The situation is delicate, to say the least. There are a lot of unknowns at the moment, and that is adding to the uncertainty and tension surrounding the coronation. It remains to be seen how things will unfold, but one thing is for sure, it will be an eventful day if the Sussexes do decide to attend.”
