No Coronation Venue, Palace Plans Revealed – Deadline

Leaked rehearsal plans for the upcoming coronation of King Charles III reveal there is currently no place for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle in the procession to watch the king’s coronation at Westminster Abbey.

This revelation from The Times of London follows reports that Harry and Meghan have been invited to the ceremony which will take place on May 6 in the British capital.

According to the plans, the king’s shamed brother, the Duke of York, has no place in the royal motorcade, nor will his daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. At an event estimated to be around a third the size of HM The Queen’s in 1953, there appears to be a place for ‘working royals only’.

These include the King’s sister, the Princess Royal, and her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, and a few other adult royal cousins.

One person who will join us is the Prince and Princess of Wales’ youngest child, Louis, who stole the show at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June last year.

Then aged four, he was considered too young to take part in his funeral procession two months later, with his elder siblings George and Charlotte becoming the youngest members of the royal family to take part in such an event.

Harry and Meghan’s children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet have not yet been invited to the coronation, according to the Times.
