Prince Harry will sit 10 rows behind the royal family at his father’s coronation. According to an aide to the royal family, the prince will make a quick exit at the May 6 coronation amid the ongoing feud between members of the royal family.
said former butler to Princess Diana Paul Burrell metro that it is unlikely that the exiled son will reconcile with his father and brother William during his next trip to the United Kingdom. He also said that he might not have time to chat with Charles or William.
“No chance of reconciliation any time soon, I’m afraid — I think he’ll get a very cold reception from the Windsors,” he said.
The former butler told JP News that the Duke of Sussex is only attending the royal event to show face and doesn’t want to spend too much time around them.
“He’s coming to put his foot in the door and he’s coming because his father wants him to be there,” said Mr. Burrell. “His father would be delighted that both of his sons would be there to witness this wonderful day in his life. But Harry won’t hang around.”
Although the coronation festivities are expected to span three days, the Duke of Sussex will only attend the actual coronation ceremony. According to reports, Harry could be flying in and out of the UK in less than 24 hours.
Charles III will be officially crowned king on May 6, in a solemn religious service, eight months after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Charles will be the 40th king to be crowned in a central London church since King William I in 1066.
Outside the United Kingdom, he is also the monarch of 14 other Commonwealth countries, including Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.
Camilla, his second wife, is to be crowned queen.
For the royal family, the occasion – described by the government as “a new chapter in our wonderful national story” – is cause for celebration.
