Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been invited to attend the coronation of King Charles next year despite the ongoing fallout with the rest of the royal family.

Despite repeated calls for the Sussexes to be stripped of their royal titles following a series of accusations against the palace in their recent Netflix documentary, it is believed the couple will still be invited to the coronation on May 6 if they wish to attend.

Charles’ views on the matter are not believed to have changed despite the couple’s recent controversies, with the king wanting to retain the “dignity” of silence and being drawn into an ongoing battle over who gets the “last word”.

According to the Telegraph, the Sussexes are yet to receive a formal invitation, but a source told the paper: ‘All members of the family will be welcome.’

Prince William is known to be closely involved in planning the ceremony, but it is unknown whether Harry will play a formal role.

The palace has yet to respond to any of the claims made by Harry in the series, including reports that the Prince of Wales “screamed and shouted” at his brother after the news of their royal departure and informed the media against him.

In the latest episodes of their Netflix documentary, Harry claims he and Meghan were “institutionally enlightened” by the royal family and will “never get a real apology” for the way they were treated.

“It was terrifying to have my brother screaming and yelling at me and my dad saying things that weren’t true and my grandmother just sitting there taking it all in,” he says. “It was very difficult.”

Meanwhile, Charles and Camilla plan to throw the biggest royal Christmas party in five years, although the Sussexes are unlikely to receive an invitation.

The event is expected to bring together all members of the so-called ‘loyal family’; including Camilla’s children, Zara Tindell, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and their partners and young children.

Even Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson are believed to have received an invitation – despite the disgraced former duke being stripped of his titles following his involvement with convicted pedophiles Jeffery Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

A source at Sandringham Palace, where the royals have traditionally spent Christmas, told The Sun: “Camilla is keen that her family is at the heart of Christmas, especially as Charles does not want his youngest son there.

“It’s an extremely important Christmas coming just months after they all last gathered for the Queen’s funeral.

“Last Christmas, the family was desperately trying to sort out Prince Andrew and his sex abuse case, and then there was the incident with the crossbow-wielding intruder at Windsor Castle.

“We saw the togetherness at the Princess of Wales’ carol concert this week and Christmas will be celebrated in the same spirit.”
