Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex’s attendance at the forthcoming Coronation remains uncertain. According to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, the couple “can’t not” join the Royal Family on May 6. He added their future media work relies on their royal association, so a snub of the royal event is not perceived as ideal.
Mr Fitzwilliams told OK!: “Here’s their mistake, they’re obsessed with controlling PR and controlling the narrative.
“The only reason they get work – work for Netflix, for Spotify, work for Random House – is because they’re royals.”
He added: “Now if they were to emphasise their isolation by not attending a royal event, that’s as important as a Coronation as well.
“It would be something that would adversely affect their contracts, I would have thought, or certainly the renewal of any contracts.
“So they’ve got to attend. They have no option but to come.”
The royal expert also added that organisers will do everything they can to “control” the Sussexes at the Coronation.
Just like they did at the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last June, they will ensure that there is no chance of the couple “overshadowing” anything on May 6.
He added: “What they will do is overshadow a lot of the run up.”
After speculation over whether the King would invite his younger son and daughter-in-law to his Coronation, the couple confirmed an invite had been received earlier this month.
A spokesperson for the couple released a statement which read: “I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the coronation.”
The statement added that “an immediate decision”, of whether they would attend or not, had not been revealed.

It has been reported that the couple’s two children, three-year-old Archie and 21-month-old Lilibet, have not been invited.
Coincidentally, the couple’s son Archie will celebrate his fourth birthday on the day of the Coronation.
Royal expert Charles Rae previously told GB News that Archie’s birthday provides the Duchess of Sussex with the “perfect excuse” to not attend Westminster Abbey on May 6.
