Prince Harry, who will attend King Charles’ coronation alone in May, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is not ‘brave or strong enough’ to join, says Princess Diana’s former butler

Prince Harry “will attend” his father King Charles Solo’s coronation in May has been predicted.

His wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is not “brave or strong enough” to make the trip, according to Princess Diana’s former butler.

“It’s probably incredibly uncomfortable for them if they participate, especially Meghan,” Paul Burrell told Closer magazine.

“Are you ready to face the music?”

“I don’t think Meghan is brave enough or strong enough to be there – she would have to look a family in the eye who pushed her under the bus,” he said.

“But I think Harry might come alone and she’s probably told him she can’t be by his side with him when he comes.”

The source said Charles giving the couple the olive branch gives him “the moral high ground” amid the couple publishing extensive documentaries and books about the royal family.

“The ball really is with Harry and Meghan,” he said.

While extending this invitation to the estranged royals, Charles evicted them from their British base at Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor grounds.

The decision at the beginning of March threw a spanner in the works for coronation considerations.

Even so, it remained clear that Charles wanted his son to attend, prompting the reported “Operation Harry in a Hurry.”

Under this plan, the prince would make a 48-hour solo visit, the Daily Mail reported.

But there are fears that Harry and Meghan’s presence could overshadow the event.

The coronation itself would be “a solemn service and an occasion for celebration and pageantry” conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the palace said in a statement.

It would, the palace reiterated, “reflect the role of the monarch today and look to the future, while being rooted in long-standing traditions and pageantry”.

This line from the palace has been interpreted by experts as indicating that Charles’ coronation will be different and more subdued than that experienced by his late mother seven decades ago, with a shorter ceremony and changes to some of the ritual’s feudal elements.

The coronation of Queen Elizabeth was the first live televised royal event and lasted three hours.
