Ahead of Spare’s release on January 10, The Sunday Times reported that Prince Harry had no role in King Charles’ coronation.

Allegedly, His Majesty has “completely written” his youngest son out of the coronation script. It just means that he will be a mere audience member if he ever attends the event.

The report further claimed that the monarch would no longer require the six royal dukes, which include Prince Harry, to kneel before him to “pay homage” before touching the crown and kissing his right cheek.
