The last day of celebrations for the coronation of Charles III began this Sunday with controversy. After the British royal family lived an intense day this Saturday, May 6 in the main event at Westminster Abbey, now the Windsors relaxed in the ‘Big Lunch’.
According to Buckingham Palace, this Sunday, May 7, the ‘Big Lunch’ was held, this event is defined as “an act of celebration and friendship at national level”. Therefore, a few minutes ago, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh and, by surprise, also the Prince and Princess of Wales mingled with the crowd to become the representation of the institution during the numerous parties and street gatherings convened in many towns and cities across the nation.

The menu, which was revealed a couple of weeks ago by the BBC, consisted of a quiche made of egg, cream, and milk, with a filling of spinach, broad beans, and tarragon. For the accompaniment, attendees could choose between a classic green salad or boiled potatoes.
The Princess of Wales appeared in a casual look consisting of a light blue blazer, a basic white T-shirt with Converse, and black jeans. William also added a relaxed touch to the event by combining his blazer with jeans.
What happened to Beatrice and Eugenie?
After the latest move in the royal family, all kinds of speculation was unleashed to explain the last-minute absence of the sisters who went unnoticed at the coronation of King Charles.
As published by the institution last May 4, the monarch of England had decided to give an important role to his nieces within the official framework of the agenda of his coronation, making them the hosts of this meeting held in Windsor. However, the daughters of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew have been replaced by the Prince and Princess of Wales.
Several theories have emerged to explain why they were replaced at the last minute.
The first one is related to her good relationship with Prince Harry, who has taken it upon himself to have a negative discourse against the royal family propagated through his multiple appearances on television, his book, and his Netflix documentary.
Oblivious to all these rumors, Beatrice and Eugenie became yesterday the main supporters of Harry in his return to the United Kingdom. The women, aged 34 and 33 respectively, took their seats in the third row, next to their cousin and their husbands, and did not leave his side for a moment.
The other theory points to the lousy image that Prince Andrew has. Some royal experts said that perhaps the controversial last-minute move to leave out Beatrice and Eugenie had something to do with the booing of Prince Andrew, father of the Yorks, during his appearance at the event.
