Prince Harry and Prince William stay away from each other at King Charles’ coronation



Prince Harry and Prince William were reunited under the same roof on Saturday for the coronation of their father King Charles at Westminster Abbey in London.

The separated brothers, who had very different roles at the coronation ceremony, avoided public interaction during the historic event.

The Prince of Wales, heir to the throne, donned a solemn robe and paid homage to his father during the ceremony. He was also part of the royal family’s procession to Buckingham Palace, where family members appeared on the overflight balcony of the military plane.

In contrast, Harry, who appeared at Westminster Abbey in a Dior morning dress and bearing his battle medals, sat two rows behind his brother in Westminster Abbey, as he had no role to play in the ceremony or procession.

Instead, the duke was on a par with his cousins, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, and their respective husbands, Jack Brooksbank and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. In the same row sat Prince Andrew, whom Harry opposed in his memoirs Spare.

Harry was not invited to join the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Instead, he’s heading back to California today to make it in time for Prince Archie’s birthday.

Meghan Markle, who was invited to the coronation, declined the invitation and stayed at the couple’s home in Montecito due to Archie’s big day.

Prince Harry wears the Afghanistan Service Medal and the Gold, Diamond and Platinum Jubilee Medals on the medal bar. The Duke of Sussex also wears the KCVO star around his neck, which he recently wore to Queen Elizabeth’s funeral.

While many still hope for a reconciliation between the brothers, they were last seen together at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in September.

After the funeral, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released their six-part documentary series for Netflix, and Harry made eye-popping statements about the royal family – and his relationship with his older brother in particular – in his best-selling memoir Spare.

Harry referred to William as his “beloved brother and sworn enemy” in his book and claimed that his older brother physically attacked him during a fight in 2019.
