Prince Harry and Meghan no-showing coronation ‘could draw out conflict’

Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle risk “drawing out the conflict” with the rest of the Royal Family if they fail to attend Kind Charles' coronation next month.

Rumours continue to swirl that the controversial Duke and Duchess of Sussex are not going to be in attendance at the marquee event on May 6.

The couple have not yet confirmed either way what the will be doing over the weekend, which has further fuelled the fire as there is only four weeks left for them to decide.

And this, PR expert Edward Coram-James claims, will become an “irreversible blow”, should they decided to no-show the event.

He told GB News: “In a universe in which the damage already caused by the rift is still recoverable from, at least in part, a no-show would be the fatal, irreversible blow, both in the public perception as well, potentially, as within the family itself.

“It risks drawing out the conflict over the long term.

“It would give further oxygen to the rift and allegations that the Sussexes have levelled at the Royal Family, and the shadow of their absence would loom large over the entire ceremony, risking becoming the elephant in the room and an unwanted sideshow.”

Only a few official plans for the coronation have been announced, and it will take place at Westminster Abbey.

The country will be filled with people holding street parties, too, as an extra Bank Holiday has been declared for the Monday after.

A Royal spokesman said: “The Coronation Big Lunch, at which neighbours and communities are invited to share food and fun together, will take place across the country on the same date.

“On Monday, May 8, 2023, members of the public will be invited to take part in The Big Help Out, which will encourage people to try volunteering for themselves and join the work being undertaken to support their local areas.

“Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort hope the Coronation Weekend will provide an opportunity to spend time and celebrate with friends, families and communities across the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.”
