King Charles Reportedly Won't Invite Prince Harry to His Coronation If Harry's Memoir Slams Queen Camilla
King Charles’ coronation is coming up on May 6, and there’s already speculation about whether or not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will attend—especially since it’s scheduled on the same day as their son Archie’s birthday. However, depending on what Prince Harry ends up writing in his upcoming memoir, they might not even be invited.
According to a friend of Queen Camilla’s who spoke to The Daily Beast, “Almost everything Charles has done over the past twenty years has, in one way or another, been about getting Camilla accepted by the public. He loves her. He is incredibly protective of her and he couldn’t do it without her. Even the queen finally accepted that. It is one thing for Harry to attack Charles, he can take it on the chin, but if Harry forces him to choose, by laying into Camilla in his book, I have no doubt he will choose Camilla.”
The Daily Beast reports that Charles “likely won’t” invite Harry if he writes negatively about Camilla, and that there is “tremendous nervousness” in his circle about the memoir in general. But royal author Katie Nicholl tells the outlet “There is no doubt that Charles would like Harry and Meghan to be at his coronation. And to be fair to Charles, he has been magnanimous in terms of extending, very publicly, olive branches to the Sussexes, not only in his televised accession address but also putting them front and center at the funeral events.”
That said, apparently Charles “does expect respect in return, and a problem is going to arise if, between now and then, Harry repays him by attacking him, Camilla or the institution. He is not going to put up with inaccurate and unfair attacks.”
Nicholl adds that, like the Queen, Charles will be focused on “protecting the institution.” She also notes that the “lack of urgency” in naming Archie and Lilibet prince/princess has everything to do with the situation. “My understanding is that Charles is not averse to granting them titles, but he expects to see respect from the Sussexes in return,” Nicholl explains. “The ball is in the Sussexes’ court. The royals, just like the rest of us, are waiting to see what they will do next.”
Guess we’ll see what happens!
