The coronation of King Charles III, the monarch of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth Realms, took place on the weekend amidst much pomp and ceremony. However, one notable absence from the event was Meghan Markle, the former American actress who is married to Prince Harry, the younger son of the late Princess Diana. While some sources claim that she was not present at the coronation, others believe that she did attend in disguise.
Several Twitter users claim to have spotted Meghan Markle at the coronation wearing a wig, glasses, and an old-timey mustache. Despite the lack of evidence to support this claim, many users are convinced of the “similarities” and have raised questions about the Dutchess of Sussex’s attendance at the coronation. Those who were vigilant of her “presence” picked her out from a crowd of more than 2000 people who gathered at Westminster Abbey. One user wrote on Twitter, “[Meghan], you’re not fooling us…”, while another added, “Looks like a character from guess who!” Some users even made Harry Potter references, with one saying, “Just wait until the polyjuice potion wears off.”
Despite the rumors, it was later revealed that the man in the picture was identified as Sir Karl Jenkins, the legendary composer who attended the ceremony as his compositions were being played at the coronation. Sir Karl Jenkins himself commented on the occasion, saying, “It obviously sums up Welsh culture – the harp – and he [King Charles III] has always supported Welsh music.”
In the midst of all this speculation, Prince Harry was spotted leaving the coronation immediately after the event. It is unclear whether he had prior commitments or simply wished to return to his family in the United States. However, Sir Karl Jenkins commented on the prince’s departure, saying, “I don’t know whether he chose it, but he was happy to have it there. I know he likes it, otherwise, he wouldn’t have asked me.”
As for Meghan Markle, she did not attend the coronation, citing the ongoing drama surrounding the Royal Family as a reason for her absence. The former actress has been very outspoken on different channels, including the Netflix docuseries, about her struggles with the scrutiny that comes with being part of the Royal Family. She claims that all the drama around the Royals would disturb her inner peace and state of mind, leading her to opt out of attending the coronation.
In the end, the coronation of King Charles III was a grand event that captured the attention of people around the world. While some may have hoped for the presence of Meghan Markle, it seems that she chose to stay away from the drama and enjoy some peace and quiet with her family. As for Prince Harry, he departed immediately after the ceremony, leaving many to wonder about his reasons for leaving so soon. Despite all the rumors and speculation, the coronation went off without a hitch, and the new king was officially crowned amidst much fanfare and celebration.
