The ceremony is to take place in early May
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are said to be willing to attend King Charles’ coronation on May 6 at Westminster Abbey.
Despite the ceremony coinciding with Prince Archie’s fourth birthday, the pair want to accept the Royal Family’s invitation despite controversy following the publication of Harry’s memoir ‘Spare’.
The couple has yet to confirm their participation, but according to the Daily Mail, they want to be a part of the celebrations for this significant moment.
“Archie’s birthday falls on May 6th, coronation day and the Sussexes want the family to recognize that,” a source told OK!.
“The Sussexes have asked for some kind of celebration or acknowledgment to be factored into the day’s plans to ensure that his fourth birthday won’t get lost during the momentous day.
“They want their children to spend time with other family members, especially their cousin August who is around about the same age as Lilibet. Both couples get on extremely well and are keen for their children to be close.”
It should be noted that during Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee last year, neither Harry nor Meghan stood on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for Trooping the Colour.
Omid Scobie, a royal author, and Sussexes penned a piece for Yahoo! News indicating that this was a mutual choice between the two sides.
According to Daily Express UK, Kinsey Schofield said, “I think that they’re both going to come because Meghan wants that tiara moment. It’s been a long time since she’s got to wear something sparkly on her head.
“They need to remind the world that they are associated with the Royal Family, because, as you know, that’s their business, that has become their sole brand.”
