Harry and Meghan would show ‘maturity’ by attending King Charles’ coronation

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will show "maturity" by coming back to the UK for King Charles' coronation, an expert says.

With less than two months to go until King Charles III is crowned at Westminster Abbey, Harry and Meghan still haven’t confirmed whether they will be attending the ceremony or not.

Author and academic Shola Mos-Shogbamimu thinks they ought to make the effort, saying it would show "maturity" on their part.

"If they are invited and choose to come then it would be a case of they are not attending because it is a coronation, it would be because it is his father," she told Newsweek.

"However Harry may be feeling about the betrayal and the family angst,” she added, “it would just be them demonstrating maturity and that they are above the pettiness coming from Charles and William.".

Royal expert Ingrid Seward added that showing up to the coronation would do Harry and Meghan a lot of good: "I've always had the impression that they would come to the Coronation," she said, "because they need the royal stardust.”

Ingrid says that even if there was some resentment about inviting the Sussexes on Charles’s side, his couriers would tell him it’s the right thing to do.

"He may not be happy for them to be there,” she said, “but I don't think he will tell them not to come.

“His advisers would say 'this is going to give so much fodder to the media'."

Whether or not the Duke and Duchess of Sussex end up in Westminster Abbey on May 6, royal expert Kinsey Schofield believes they could have a headline-grabbing surprise up their sleeves for the big day.

As well as May 6 being the day that Harry’s father is officially crowned, it’s also the day that their son Archie turns four.

And Kinsey thinks there could be a surprise in store for royal fans: "I really think if we see anything around the Coronation,” the To Di For Daily host said, “that would be a photo of Archie.

Archie could also make a rare public appearance at the coronation. Expert Gareth Russell suggested earlier this year that King Charles had extended the invitation to his grandchildren.

He told US Weekly: "We do know King Charles III has kept the invitation to the Coronation open.

"And he's made it really clear that not just the Duke of Duchess of Sussex but also Lilibet and Archie are very welcome in London in May for his coronation."
