They have received their royal titles, but allegedly not important mail: Prince Archie (3) and Princess Lilibet (1) should not be invited to the coronation of their grandfather Charles III. (74) have. The invitation that their parents, Prince Harry (38) and Duchess Meghan (41), received for the event on May 6 in London, does not mention the couple's two children, according to "The Sunday Telegraph". Archie and Lilibet are "very young," a Royal Palace source told the newspaper.
Whether Harry and Meghan, who stepped down as working royals in 2020 and moved to California, will attend the coronation is not yet known. According to media reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex only confirmed that they were invited.
As The Telegraph reports, there could be more talks regarding Archie and Lilibet once Harry and Meghan have made their own decision about attending. If the Sussexes do travel to the UK for the coronation in May, they probably can't expect a warm welcome. An alleged insider told the "Daily Mail": "You will get the cold shoulder from a lot of relatives." Many of the family reportedly wanted nothing more to do with the couple.
In interviews, a Netflix documentary and an autobiography of the prince ("Spare"), Harry and Meghan have been criticizing members of the British royal family and the British press since emigrating.
According to the Telegraph report, the two older children of Prince William (40) and Princess Kate (41) – Prince George (9) and Princess Charlotte (7) – are expected to be present at the coronation in Westminster Abbey. The Prince and Princess of Wales are still "considering" taking the feisty Prince Louis, who turns five in April, with them, they said. But he will probably be there too.
Queen Consort Camilla's (75) grandchildren could also have an official role in the ceremony. Their son Tom Parker Bowles (48) has two children aged 15 and 13 and their daughter Laura Lopes (45) has a 15-year-old daughter and twins aged 13.
