Buckingham Palace confirmed on Wednesday that Prince Harry will travel to the United Kingdom in May without his wife Meghan Markle and their two kids for the coronation of his father King Charles III.

The royal household told People magazine in a statement that the Duke of Sussex would attend the crowning of the King and Queen Camilla in London.

“Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6th May,” the statement read.

“The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet,” it added.

The date of the coronation falls on the same day as Prince Archie’s birthday. Markle will stay in CA to celebrate their oldest turning four that weekend.

In March, The Sunday Times U.K. reported that the royal couple had been invited to the ceremony.

A spokesperson for the Sussex’s told the outlet, “I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the coronation. An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time.”

The King ascended the throne in September 2022 following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, at 96. Charles formally becomes the head of the monarchy when he’s crowned at London’s Westminster Abbey.


Relations between the royal couple and the family have not been the best following Harry and Markle’s initial decision to step down from their senior roles in January 2020. Three years later, the prince released his tell-all memoir that took aim at Harry’s brother, sister-in-law, and father.

In the memoir, the royal blames the media for destroying his relationship with his family, writing, “How lost we are, I thought. How far we’ve strayed. How much damage has been done to our love, our bond, and why? All because a dreadful mob of dweebs and crones and cut-rate criminals and clinically diagnosable sadists along Fleet Street feel the need to get their jollies and plump their profits — and work out their personal issues — by tormenting one very large, very ancient, very dysfunctional family.”
