There has been much speculation about whether or not Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will attend the coronation of King Charles III. What has been confirmed is that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have received the official invitation to the historic event.

This Sunday, March 5, a spokesman for Harry and Meghan, confirmed that the prince had received the email invitation from the king’s office.
“I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the coronation,” a spokesperson for Harry said.
Notably, on the same day as Charles III’s coronation, it is the fourth birthday of Archie, the Sussexes’ son. A reason that has always been bandied about as the perfect excuse for Harry and Meghan not to travel to the UK.
