Britain’s Prince Harry invited to King Charles’ coronation – spokesman

LONDON, March 5 (Reuters) – Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have received an invitation to his father King Charles’ coronation but will not yet publicly confirm whether they will attend, a spokesman for Harry said on Sunday.

Preparations for the May event have been overshadowed by the couple’s damning revelations about the king, Harry’s older brother Prince William and other royals in his recent memoir, a Netflix documentary and a series of television interviews.

His recent high-profile and stinging criticism of his family had led to speculation about whether Harry, who stepped down from royal duties in 2020, would be invited to the coronation and, if he was, whether he would attend.

“I can confirm that the Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s Office regarding the coronation,” a spokesman for Harry said.

“An immediate decision on whether the Duke and Duchess will attend will not be revealed by us at this time.”
