The Duke of Sussex will be present at the King's coronation but Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will not be attending, Buckingham Palace has said.There had been speculation about whether the couple would travel to the coronation but it has now emerged that Prince Harry will attend alone.The prince will join more than 2,000 guests at Westminster Abbey on 6 May.It will be the first time he has been seen with the Royal Family since his bombshell memoir Spare was published.Prince Harry's book vividly revealed the depth of his disagreements with other members of the Royal Family and he has since spoken of feeling "different" from the rest of his family.The King and Queen Consort will be crowned next month in front of more than 2,000 guests.The decision for Meghan to reject the invitation will be seen as part of these continuing, unresolved family tensions. Prince Harry's book - and an earlier Netflix series - had highlighted his anxiety about negative media coverage, particularly towards Meghan, and he had warned of a lack of support from his family.It had been unclear whether Prince Harry would attend his father's coronation, but it is now confirmed that he will be at the Abbey, meaning King Charles will have both his sons present for the ceremony.The date is also the fourth birthday of Prince Harry and Meghan's son, Prince Archie, who will remain in the US with his mother.Prince Harry and Meghan issued a statement along the same lines as the palace: "The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation service at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet."Neither the couple's spokeswoman nor Buckingham Palace commented on the decision, but there were strongly divided opinions on social media, with supporters praising Meghan for standing up for herself while opponents criticised her for "snubbing" her royal in-laws.
