‘Real reason’ why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took so long to RSVP to King Charles’ coronation revealed
THE ‘real reason’ Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took so long to agree to King Charles’ coronation has been revealed.
The couple’s presence has been up in the air for months since they made a series of shocking, baseless claims about the royal family.
It was revealed on March 4th that they had made the cut after Harry received an email from his father’s office.
But the April 3 RSVP deadline passed without the couple confirming their attendance at the Palace.
However, on Monday it was confirmed that the Duke of Sussex will come alone while Meghan and the children stay at home in the US.
Now sources have claimed the reason it took the couple so long was because Harry was busy trying to figure out where to sit.
They told MailOnline: “Harry’s side were keen to find out what the seating plan is at the Abbey, presumably because they wanted to stamp it.
“There’s been a lot of back-and-forth about who they are [Harry and Meghan] would sit in the back when they came. And who would stand behind them.”
Another source added: “That’s true. There were many questions of detail for the abbey.”
It comes after it was revealed that Sarah Ferguson has not been invited to the King’s coronation, despite Meghan leaving a vacancy at the abbey.
The Duchess of York, 63, is expected to watch the event on TV at the Royal Lodge, which she shares with disgraced ex-Prince Andrew.
Royal author Phil Dampier said: “She can’t wait to be at the top of the royal pecking order.”
The Sun understands Fergie was told she wasn’t among the 2,000 guests despite knowing Charles since childhood.
Harry and Andrew will both attend the coronation, although neither will have a formal role.
The King and Queen Camilla will arrive in a sleek, modern horse-drawn carriage for the coronation, then return to the palace in a 1762 Boneshaker.
You’ll transition from the Diamond Jubilee Coach, with comfy seats and shock absorbers, to the Gold State Coach, whose ride was described as “disturbing” by Queen Victoria.
They are followed by a “final group of 15” that will reflect the “heartbeat and future of [the] family,” according to reports.
William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales, will be on the balcony with their three children – Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4.
The Sun have reached out to Buckingham Palace and the Sussexes for comment.
