Prince Harry to attend coronation without Meghan, Buckingham Palace announces
The Duke of Sussex will attend the King’s Coronation but the Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, Buckingham Palace has announced.
“Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6 May,” the statement said.
“The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”
The news comes after months of speculation as to whether the couple would attend the event, which is taking place on Saturday 6 May.
The coronation is being held at Westminster Abbey in London, where there are expected to be 2,000 guests in attendance, a stark contrast to the 8,000 guests present at the Queen’s coronation in 1953.
Charles will turn 74 years old in November 2022, making him the oldest person to be crowned in British history.
