King Charles disappointed over Meghan Markle, grandchildren not attending his Coronation

King Charles is 'very disappointed' that he won't see the Duchess of Sussex or his grandchildren at his coronation next month, but is 'happy' that Prince Harry has decided to attend, royal sources said last night.

MailOnline reported that Buckingham Palace announced the dramatic news in a statement on Wednesday, saying it was ‘pleased to confirm’ the Duke of Sussex will be at Westminster Abbey on May 6.

But the Duchess will stay home at the couple’s residence in Montecito with one-year-old Lilibet and Archie, whose fourth birthday is on the same day as the ceremony, which will take place in just over three weeks time.

Royal experts said last night the decision is an ‘ideal compromise’ which would leave the rest of the family ‘relieved’. But some have described the decision as a ‘snub’ after the King accompanied Meghan down the aisle when she married his younger son.
The news follows the enduring row between the Sussexes and the rest of the royals, which has become more heated in recent months following the release of Prince Harry’s memoir Spare.

A royal source told the Sun last night: ‘The King is happy that Harry, his son, who he calls his “darling boy” will be at the Abbey.

‘He wanted him there. It is sad, he is very disappointed that he won’t see Meghan or his grandchildren but understands the situation.’

Harry’s decision to attend the Westminster Abbey Coronation service is viewed as a potential olive branch by royal insiders, following an earlier demand that his family should apologise to him and Meghan if they were to consider coming.
