Harry goes to the coronation without royal attire and sits with his cousins
The prince and his wife, Meghan Markle, left the royal family in 2020 and no longer use the title “royal highness”
Prince Harry attended this Saturday (May 6, 2023) the coronation ceremony of his father, King Charles III. This was the first public engagement with the royal family that Harry has participated in since the publication of the book “Spare”on January 10, 2023.
Despite attending the ceremony, Harry did not wear the royal attire used by his brother, Prince William, wearing only a suit and medals. Also, Harry’s wife, Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, did not attend the event. The Duchess stayed in California, in the United States, to celebrate the birthday of her son, Prince Archie – who turns 4 this Saturday.
Social media users noted that Harry sat with his cousins in the back, away from his brother and Princess of Wales Kate Middleton.
How much the tide has turned.
