Prince Harry will attend the coronation ceremony in London for his father, King Charles III, without his wife and children on May 6, Buckingham Palace officials have confirmed.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will not be at the ceremony and will remain at home in California with her children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, according to a statement released on April 12 by the palace.

As of last week, Harry and Meghan had yet to confirm if they would attend the coronation at Westminster Abbey, where King Charles will officially take the crown.

In January, Harry raised the possibility of attending his father’s coronation ceremony in an interview with the British ITV network.

«A lot can happen between now and then,» the Duke of Sussex said. «But, you know, the door is always open.»

“The ball is in their court,” he continued. There’s a lot to discuss, and I really hope they’re willing to sit down and talk about it.»

During the televised ceremony on May 6, Camila, the queen consort, will also be crowned along with King Charles.

Harry’s nephew Prince George, 9, the son of Prince William, will serve as his grandfather’s pageant during the coronation. The grandchildren of British monarchs rarely play an official role at coronations, so George’s involvement is a departure from tradition.
