Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been at the center of the limelight due to their scathing attacks and revelations. They have been utilizing their multiple media deals to their fullest. The couple has reportedly inked a $100 million deal with Netflix for creating content for the platform. Two of the many content pieces are already streaming. The first one was the two-part docuseries titled ‘Harry & Meghan’, which chronicled certain intimate details about their relationship and the equations with the Royal Family. They have also released an interview series titled ‘Live to Lead’.

But, one of the most anticipated projects of the Duke of Sussex was his memoir ‘Spare’. In October 2022, Penguin Random House revealed the cover picture of the book. In July 2022, he teased a synopsis of the memoir. But, it got leaked in Spain, and since then the snippets have been making rounds on the internet. The leaked parts have revealed a lot of behind-the-scenes drama including the alleged physical assault allegations against Prince William and some steamy confessions. The memoir is out, and it seems that the fissure has become wider between Harry, Meghan, and the Royal Family. This has led to speculations that they will attend King Charles’ coronation ceremony.

It is just four months till we witness King Charles take the role of the British Monarch in an elaborate coronation ceremony on May 6, 2023. The death of Queen Elizabeth II led Charles to take responsibility which he had already started to do. But, to formalize it, the coronation will take place. It will happen at Westminster Abbey. The elaborate crowning will be a state affair where he will be crowned with St Edward’s crown from the 17th Century. The government looks after the guest list. But, it seems that the possibilities of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attending are thin.

Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir ‘Spare’ has created ripples in the British Monarch. The Palace has not yet given any formal statement about it, but the family is shaken. On these grounds, the two will not be expected to attend the coronation ceremony. One of the sources close to the palace told The Sun that the family is not eager to welcome the couple due to any revelation or piece of conversation ending “up in the paperback.” Another source said, “There have been discussions among the family, including Edward and Anne. They do not want private conversations at the coronation, making it into the paperback edition of ‘Spare’ “.

Prince Harry has not been holding back to make statements against his brother and soon-to-be-monarch King Charles. In his memoir ‘Spare’, he called Prince William his archnemesis. He wrote, “The Heir and the Spare — there was no judgment about it, but also no ambiguity. I was the shadow, the support, the Plan B”. He alleged that King Charles had an affair with Camilla. He referred to her as “the Other Woman” and regrets not have spoke anything against it.

An insider told The Independent about what is the invitation status of the couple. The insider revealed, “The King does not expect them to be at the coronation. The family will extend the invitation but it would be very hard for Harry and Meghan to be there given everything that has been said in the interviews and the book. The family expects Harry and Meghan to find a reason not to be there”. They fear that if anything is said or done will become a gossip piece sensationalized by Harry.

The Duke has made a cryptic comment on his attendance at the royal ceremony. In the ’60 Minutes’ interview, he said, “There’s a lot that can happen between now and then. But, the door is always open. The ball is in their court. There’s a lot to be discussed and I really hope that they’re willing to sit down and talk about it.”
