Prince Harry will attend his father’s coronation next month, Buckingham Palace said on Wednesday, ending speculation over whether the strained relations between the Duke of Sussex and other members of the royal family would stain one of the biggest royal events in a generation.
Harry’s wife, Meghan, and their two children will not attend, the palace said. The coronation of King Charles III will be held on May 6 at Westminster Abbey in London.
Since Harry and Meghan withdrew from royal duties in 2020 and moved to the United States, the Duke of Sussex has attended a few royal events, including the funerals of Queen Elizabeth II in September and Prince Philip in 2021. But his attendance at the coronation, and that of his wife and children, has been a subject of constant speculation after interviews, documentaries and Harry’s memoir, “Spare,” portrayed a growing rift in the royal family.
