Prince Harry will not be seated near his family at his father’s coronation ceremony.
Prince Harry will be away from the rest of the royal family during his father’s coronation and will not stay to shoot the breeze with his loved ones, according to a royal associate.
The ‘Spare’ heir will be seated 10 rows behind his family and make a quick exit at King Charles’ coronation on May 6 amid his continued estrangement, former royal butler Paul Burrell has told The Sun.
Burrell said the exiled son is unlikely to reconcile with his father and brother William and may not even have time to chat with either, depending on the point. of sale.
“There’s no chance of a reconciliation anytime soon, I’m afraid – I think he’ll get a very chilly reception from the Windsors,” he said.
The ex-butler, who served the late Princess Diana, told GB News that Prince Harry would attend the King’s coronation just to “show face”.
“He comes to put his foot in the door and he comes because his dad wants him to be there,” Burell said. “His father will be thrilled to have his two sons here to witness this incredible day in his life.”
“But Harry is not going to hang around,” he added.
The coronation festivities will span a three-day period, but the Duke of Sussex is only expected to attend the actual coronation ceremony.
The event will be the first time Harry has seen his father and brother since the publication in January of his explosive memoir ‘Spare’ in which he spared no detail of the dirty laundry reported by the Royal Family.
A source previously told The Sun that the Duke was ‘desperate to return for the coronation and to spend some quality time with his family’.
He will attend the coronation solo. Wife Meghan Markle plans to stay in California with the couple’s two children, Archie and Lilibet, to celebrate Archie’s fourth birthday on the same day.
Markle has denied rumors that she is skipping the coronation because of letters she and the King exchanged over her concerns about racism within Buckingham Palace.
