Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have done well to isolate themselves from the rest of the British royal family, and following Harry’s latest airing of the family’s dirty laundry for all the world to smell with his book Spare, they can only expect to be completely sidestepped in any future events.
Well, lo and behold, they are being cordoned off from the Monarchy in a passive-aggressive move typical of the King (and once, the Queen) despite being invited to the coronation ceremony.
US Daily Report has called it a “brutal punishment” for the Sussexes, but really, once again, it is the media body delivering the most brutal of punishments in the form of harsh words:
Keeping up with Queen Elizabeth II‘s way of doing things, King Charles, Prince William, and the rest of the royals will keep the vow of silence in the face of the circus. However, they will humiliate and let Prince Harry and Markle know that they are second-grade royals who now use the media and a load of nasty family secrets to pay their bills.
His Majesty has decided that while Prince Harry, his wife, Meghan Markle, and their young children, Archie and Lilibet Diana, will be invited to the coronation ceremony, they will be banned from appearing on the famous balcony at Buckingham Palace.
It is hardly that dramatic, and honestly, should Prince Harry and Meghan really care that they won’t be allowed onto the balcony with the others?
“To add insult to injury”, the publication continues, the Queen Consort’s ceremony is set to take place on Archie’s birthday, May 6.
It is unlikely that the two royal runaways will even pitch up to the event and word on the street is that King Charles does not even expect to see his son and daughter-in-law at the ceremony anyway:
Sources told The Independent: “The King does not expect them to be at the coronation. The family will extend the invitation, but it would be very hard for Harry and Meghan to be there, given everything that has been said in the interviews and the book. The family expects Harry and Meghan to find a reason not to be there.”
That seems fair enough, in all honesty.
I would be surprised if Harry does go, and if he does, will it be a tail between the legs or a nose pointed in the air situation?
The ball is in someone’s court.
