Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been urged not to attend the upcoming coronation of King Charles III next year following the release of their controversial Netflix docuseries.
Political heavyweights suggested that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could overshadow King Charles III and provoke public displeasure. Former Tory leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith said:
"If they dislike the Royal Family so much why would they attend?"
Former Tory Cabinet minister David Mellow also stated:
"They categorically shouldn't come. They make money out of selling their family down the river. I think it should be made clear that the British people do not want them there. They are a sad pair."
Tory MP Bob Seely opined:
"If I were them I'd stay away - but they obviously want to attend [the Coronation] and monetise it afterwards."
Royal author Margaret Holder added:
"I think the Sussexes will simply not be invited to events, or they will be advised diplomatically not to attend, because it would mean all attention goes on them and not on the Royal Family."
