Royal news – latest: Meghan Markle snubs King’s coronation as Prince Harry to attend
The Duke of Sussex will be attending the King’s coronation on his own, Buckingham Palace has announced.
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
“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.
It is thought that Archie’s fourth birthday, also on 6 May, might have played a factor in the couple’s decision.
It comes as the relationship between King Charles III and the Duke of York has “never been this bad” as the latter reportedly continues his “resistance” to moving out of the Royal Lodge, it has been said.
