There is plenty of speculation about whether Prince Harry and Meghan will attend, especially following the publication of his explosive memoir, Spare.

The King is said to believe that Harry and Meghan‘s absence from the event would be a greater distraction than their presence, so he’s looking to persuade them to attend.

However, Prince William is allegedly “concerned” that his brother will upstage the event with a “stunt,” which would overshadow the event.

“The issue of substance is whether they attend the Coronation, and if they do, under what terms and conditions. The family is split, and all the indications are that Harry is being advised to agree to nothing at this stage and ‘play it long’ right up to the last minute, which is making negotiations with him very difficult,” a source said.

Harry‘s camp made clear that the idea that he would just attend the Coronation and behave himself but then be stripped of his titles was a total non-starter. While he might decide at some point to discard his titles of his own volition, he objects to the idea of being forcibly stripped of them,” they continued.

“He resents being lumped together with Andrew in the public mind as the two ‘problem Princes’, when he considers the circumstances to be totally different.”

Liz Garbus, the director of Harry & Meghan, the Netflix docu-series about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, is speaking out about the “alleged palace mind games” they were subjected to.
