The coronation of King Charles III is fast approaching. We know the place, the date, the guests are more or less on the list, but a mystery about the event lingers: will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry come? Despite all the attacks they launched against the royal family with the support of documentaries and literature, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were personally invited to the event by the King.

What is certain is that if Charles invited them, it is neither a guarantee of reconciliation nor a symbol of peace. Scorched by the revelations of his son and daughter-in-law since their departure from the monarchy, Camilla Parker-Bowles’ husband has lost his temper. Frogmore Cottage, the place where they used to put their suitcases, was taken from them. And unlike Kate, William, the King and Queen, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, Edward and Sophie, they will not have a place in the motorcade after the ceremony as revealed. The times, while Kate and Willim’s three children (George, Charlotte and Louis) will be in attendance. Unless Charles, out of love for his grandchildren, decides to change his mind…
