Prince Harry ‘will attend coronation alone’ as Meghan won’t be ‘brave enough’: expert

Prince Harry will attend his father’s coronation “alone” because his wife Meghan Markle will not be “brave or strong enough”, according to the late Princess Diana’s former butler.

Paul Burrell, who worked for Diana for more than 10 years until her sudden death in 1997, said the king had “maintained high morals” by inviting the exiled royal family to the May 6 coronation.

“It will probably be incredibly uncomfortable for them if they attend, especially Meghan,” the 64-year-old told Closer Magazine. “Are they ready to face the music?”

“I don’t think Meghan is brave or strong enough to be there – she should be looking in the eye at a family she pushed under the bus,” he continued.

“But I think Harry can come alone and she probably told him she can’t be with him if he attends.”

Prince Harry will attend his father’s coronation without his wife Meghan Markle, Princess Diana’s former butler.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who recently received their invitations to the May ceremony – are still debating whether or not they will make the 5,459-mile journey.

Burrell noted that ultimately “the ball is well and truly in Harry and Meghan’s court”, adding that it will be difficult for Harry to see Queen Consort Camilla “where her mother might have been”.

In his explosive memoir ‘Spare’, Harry went to great lengths when it came to divulging family secrets and private conversations.

While promoting the book in a ’60 Minutes’ interview, the Duke described Camilla as a “villain” and the third person in the marriage between Charles and Diana.

The comment was said to have been the deciding factor in the King’s decision to evict the Sussexes from their Frogmore Cottage.

Representatives for the Sussexes said “an immediate decision” on whether they will make the trip “will not be disclosed”.

If they go, the exiled royals will be greeted with a ‘cold shoulder’ by senior members of the royal family.

“They will be greeted coldly by very many relatives. One said to me, ‘I hope they sit in Iceland’,” a royal source told the Daily Mail.

“A lot of the family don’t want anything to do with them anymore. If they’re going to see them at the coronation, so be it, but they don’t want to socialize with them.
