The news comes two days after the palace announced that Prince Harry will attend the coronation, while his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will remain with their children, Prince Archie—who will celebrate his 4th birthday the same day, and Princess Lilibet, 22 months, in California. The couple had moved there following their controversial 2020 exit from their roles as senior Royals.
The coronation will mark the first public family reunion for Harry since he attended Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral with Meghan last September. It also comes four months following the release of his tell-all memoir Spare in January. In the book, he dropped several bombshells about his strained relationships with his brother, Prince William, and the King, in what marks a departure from Royal protocol of keeping personal affairs private.
Sarah—who was good friends with the princes’ late mother Princess Diana and who, according to Harry’s book, taught Meghan how to curtsy to the Queen—has publicly voiced her support for the Sussexes amid their turmoil.
