Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s attendance at King Charles’ coronation has not yet been confirmed. In fact, it remains unclear whether the monarch wants the Sussexes at the milestone event that will take place on May 6.

King Charles Offered Incentives To Prince Harry To Encourage Duke To Attend His Coronation?
However, Daily Mail claimed that King Charles and the royal family are rolling out incentives for Prince Harry to encourage him to attend the coronation. After all, having him and Meghan Markle there could present the royal family in a more positive light because it could suggest that all is well between the Sussexes and the members of the British clan.
A source claimed that King Charles offered to give Prince Harry a high-profile seating position and assured him that he and Markle could keep their royal titles even if they no longer worked for the royal family.
“Harry’s camp made clear that the idea that he would just attend the Coronation and behave himself but then be stripped of his titles was a total non-starter. While he might decide at some point to discard the titles of his own volition, he objects to the idea of being forcibly stripped of them. He resents being lumped together with Andrew in the public mind as the two ‘problem Princes’ when he considers the circumstances to be totally different,” the source said.

According to The Sun, Prince Harry can also make some arrangements to attend King Charles’ coronation sans his wife. And he will only stay in the United Kingdom for 48 hours.
The alleged plan has been dubbed “Harry in a Hurry” because he will only make a brief appearance at the coronation before heading back home to Montecito to be with his wife and kids.

King Charles And Prince William ‘Working In Tandem’ To Bring Prince Harry To The Coronation?
Express also made claims that Prince William is on board with King Charles’ plans to invite Prince Harry to his coronation. The father and son allegedly agreed to work in tandem to encourage the Duke of Sussex to attend the important event.
“Reports have placed William’s understandable anger over the Sussexes’ revelations at odds with Charles’ desire, as monarch, for a show of unity when he is crowned. However, I would be surprised if they were not working in tandem to ensure that if the Sussexes do come—and we have no way of knowing if they will—they are controlled. This worked during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and also during the period of the Queen’s funeral,” royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said.
However, it is also important to note that King Charles’ coronation falls on the same day as Prince Harry and Markle’s son’s birthday. So, this could be another reason for the couple’s absence.
