Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could take the spotlight away from King Charles on the day of his coronation, which will take place on May 6.
Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to confirm their attendance at King Charles III’s coronation, the two could take center stage during the ceremony, whether they are present or not.
Harry and Meghan: starring at the coronation of King Charles III
According to seasoned Australian journalist, Daniela Elser, if Meghan and Harry attend the coronation, the world’s press will be watching the couple and pointing their cameras to see “every blink and glance” of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Now, if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decide not to attend the coronation ceremony, it would trigger an uproar, which would divert attention away from the historic event. Thus, Charles along with Camilla and the royal family would be put on the back burner.
It is worth noting that the day of Charles and Camilla’s coronation coincides with the fourth birthday of Harry and Meghan’s firstborn son Archie.
