Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly got their coronation blows without Archie and Lilibet being invited.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, have yet to be invited to the coronation, according to The Times.
A rehearsal plan seen by the newspaper revealed that the young people would not be attending Charles’ coronation.
Harry, Meghan and Prince Andrew are reportedly not planning to attend the procession.
However, Archie and Lilibet’s possible absence isn’t entirely surprising since both children are very young.
Prince Louis was considered too young to attend the Queen’s funeral, which was attended by both his brothers George and Charlotte.
They were the youngest members of the royal family to attend the funeral procession.
It’s not cynical that Meghan and Harry won’t join the march if they do attend.
Aside from the Prince and Princess of Wales and their children, the only royals in procession from the Abbey are the Princess Royal and her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Lawrence, the new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess. of Gloucester, and the Duke of Kent and his sister Princess Alexandra.
The Prince of Wales children will join their parents in the carriage behind Charles and Camilla aboard the Gold State Coach.
Second in line to the throne, nine-year-old George was long expected to attend the coronation.
And there was also speculation that he had a role to play.
Harry, 38, and Meg, 41, have yet to officially announce whether they will attend the coronation.
Harry’s relationship with the King and Prince of Wales remained troubled following the publication of the controversial duke’s tell-all memoir, Spare.
The king’s second son has criticized Prince Charles’ parenting, accused William of physically attacking him, and branded Camilla a “danger.”
The coronation event will begin on Saturday, May 6th.
Sunday 7 May and Monday 8 May have been declared bank holidays in honor of the coronation.
For an action-packed weekend, the King and Queen arrive at Westminster Abbey on Saturday morning in the King’s Procession.
This was followed by the coronation by the Archbishop of Canterbury, “rooted in long-standing tradition and pomp, reflecting the role of the monarch today and looking to the future”.
After the service, the newly crowned king and queen return to the palace in a larger ceremonial parade known as the coronation procession.
Representatives for Meghan and Harry have reached out for comment.
