Prince Charles will likely not invite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to his coronation if he attacks Queen Camilla in his forthcoming book, a friend of the new queen told the Daily Beast.
“Most of what Charles has done in the last 20 years has been to somehow get Camilla into the public eye,” said a friend. Even the Queen eventually accepted it.It’s one thing for Harry to attack Charles and he can put it on his chin. But if Harry forces him to choose by beating Camilla with his book, I have no doubt he’ll choose Camilla.
The palace declined to comment on the story to The Daily Beast.Palace sources said the guest list issue was in the “tbc” heap and whether Harry and Meghan would get the call or be left out. Clearly left open.
Given that Harry has promised his yet-to-be-scheduled memoir will be a “perfectly honest” account of his life, it doesn’t include a point-by-point account of how Charles and Diana’s marriage fell apart. It seems unimaginable. By Charles’ ongoing relationship with Camilla, as Diana herself put it plainly.
Diana revealed it to Andrew Morton for his book Diana, her true storyshe considers Camilla far from an innocent bystander, and she was just as responsible for the continuation of the case as Charles was.
Among the memorable encounters Morton recounted Diana: In her own words, he said Camilla invited Diana to lunch before the wedding and asked Diana if she would go hunting with Charles after the marriage. She said Diana wouldn’t.
“Diana later realized that Camilla saw Charles’ love of hunting as a conduit for maintaining a relationship with him,” Morton wrote.
The Daily Beast understands that there is tremendous skepticism in Charles’ circle about what this book will reveal.
Harry doesn’t attack Camilla in the same way he attacked his father, but he cuts off his father financially, doesn’t answer his phone calls, and is indifferent to his suffering, among many other atrocities. but he particularly failed. Kudos to her ascension to Queen.
Katie Nicholl, Author new royals When vanity fair A royal correspondent told the Daily Beast: And, in all fairness to Charles, he was very openly generous in extending the Olive Branch into Sussex.
“But he expects respect in return, and problems arise when Harry rewards him by attacking him, Camilla, or the Authority. I have no intention of holding back the attack.
“The ball is in the Sussex court. The royals, like us, are waiting to see what they do next.”

“The Queen has been ruthless when it comes to protecting institutions, and so will Charles. You can probably see that in the lack of urgency in naming Archie and Lilibet’s Prince and Princess. My understanding is that Charles is not averse to giving them titles, but expects respect from Sussex in return.
“The ball is on the Sussex court. The royals, like us, are waiting to see what they do next.”
The question of what the Sussexes plan to do, how deep the secrets they uncover in their next salvo will delve, how painful and damaging it will be, is a big “known unknown” that prevents true reconciliation. ’, or the feeling that reconciliation has been reached. New stable accommodation, albeit uneasy, between the two sides.
The ambiguity didn’t help while the Queen was alive, but it was something the two sides could almost live with. However, he planned to rebuild the burned bridge next year.
The death of Queen Elizabeth II completely blew the feasibility of such a strategy.
But Windsor’s stubbornness was a powerful one, and there weren’t even signs that Harry and Meghan attempted to reconcile in any meaningful way while they were in the UK for the Queen’s funeral.
Despite several carefully choreographed joint events with William, Harry was allowed to sit second row during his funeral at Westminster Abbey and wear his uniform during the Queen’s Wake. It is said that he was enraged by a series of perceived sophistry, such as being However, removing the Queen’s EIIR cipher, which meant his role as lieutenant, and banning him from wearing uniforms at other times, William’s camp told journalists that a joint walkabout at Windsor Castle was all William’s idea. explained that it was
“Their actions over the next few weeks will likely determine not only what their relationship with the royal family will be like at their coronation in May, but how they will be for the rest of their lives.”
— Duncan Larcombe
Duncan Larcombe, Royal Author and former Royal Editor Sunaccording to The Daily Beast, if the Montecito-based couple is serious about making enough amends with the royal family to secure an invitation to Camilla and Charles’ coronation, the first good move is William and Kate. said he would hope things would go well when he visited Boston in December to promote the Earthshot Awards.
He added, “What Harry and Meghan say and do in the coming months will be extremely important. It all depends in particular on what he says in his book, which is by some margin , the most awaited royal book ever, and the first written by a family member.
“If the royal family decides not to invite Harry, one way they would say that the coronation is an institutional event, not a family event, is for working royals only.” It would be very chilling for Harry if he weren’t invited to support his father on the day of his death, but if the context of the coronation is Harry sticking a machete in the background, he realizes how the king can invite him. It’s equally difficult to get Charles and Camilla’s back while promoting in his book.
“Charles seems to keep the powder dry until the results come out,” added Larcombe. “He has yet to make Harry and Meghan’s children a prince and princess, but as a matter of law and precedent, he is entitled to those titles.
“This is a carrot that could be left unattended for years to come. He may take some comfort from reports that he is doing so.
The reality for Harry and Meghan is that everything has changed.
Sure, they need money. But Harry, now one of the most powerful people in the world, asks himself how sustainable it is to stand against a monarch who whimsically manipulates every lever of the British state’s vast apparatus. must be.
As the coronation amply reveals, they are no longer arguing with a meddling prince.
