Royals prep "plan B" as they expect Harry and Meghan to snub coronation

"One includes Harry and Meghan and one doesn’t."

The Royal Family are reportedly preparing for a plan B situation for King Charles III’s coronation as they predict that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won't show.


According to The Telegraph, the Sussexes have been invited via email to go to the event in May. They have also been reportedly informed that the inclusion of their children will be discussed at the coronation and they have confirmed their own attendance.

While they have confirmed, it is believed that Harry and Meghan have not decided if they will actually attend.

It has now been reported that the Royals have two plans of action drafted for the event in the case that the couple don't show up.

An insider told The Daily Mail: “Two versions of the plans [for the day] are being drawn up. One includes Harry and Meghan and one doesn’t.


“Timings are all approximate at this stage, but they are working towards a timetable now.”


The Telegraph has reported that Harry and Meghan are “weighing up the logistics” alongside the “personal implications” of going to the coronation.


A spokesperson for the couple confirmed to The Times that they “recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the coronation”.

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

Earlier this month, the royal couple were told to "vacate" their UK residence, Frogmore Cottage.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's spokesperson said a "request" had been made for them to give up the residence, near Windsor Castle.

The spokesperson said: "We can confirm the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been requested to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage."
