Coronation of King Charles: in plan George, Charlotte and Louis in a carriage

The princes will participate in the procession of honor for the coronation of King Charles of England. But there will be no place for Harry, Meghan and Andrea. The royal family is finalizing the details of the ceremony that will take place on May 6. Princes George, 9, Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 4, reveals the British newspaper daily mailwill feature prominently in the parade along the Mall following the coronation of the new sovereign in Westminster Abbey.

The little ones will be in the carriage taking their parents, William and Kate from Wales. The carriage that will follow the one in which King Charles and his queen consort Camilla will sit, the “Gold State Coach”, built in 1762 and restored for the Platinum Jubilee of the sovereign who died on September 8th. A position of absolute importance for the little princes, since in the past children, especially those as young as Luís, did not participate in public ceremonies, for fear of getting tired soon and not following protocols. Thus, for example, in Isabel’s funeral procession, Luís, considered “too young”, stayed at home. While the brothers attended the event. But this time it will be different. The little princes will stand together and follow their parents both into church for the coronation and into the carriage for the parade, and then they will greet their subjects from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

But in the procession, according to what has been leaked, there will be no place for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex or for Andrea, the prince who fell out of favor after the scandals that linked him to billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

Harry and Meghan have been invited to the coronation, but have yet to officially announce whether they will attend. The Casa Real team is planning so that their children, Archie and Lilibet, can also participate in the festivities at the church. However, none of them will have a place of honor in the procession or stand on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to greet their subjects in “British” tradition. Harry’s revelations about the Family in the autobiographical book “Spare” still burn. If they accept the invitation, the Sussexes will likely stay at Frogmore Cottage, the house on the grounds of Windsor Castle where they moved after their marriage and before flying to the United States.

Camilla’s grandchildren will also attend their grandmother’s and stepfather’s coronation and will play an official role. The Queen’s son, Tom Parker Bowles, has two sons, aged 15 and 13. According to the leaks, he hopes the boys will be able to carry Camilla’s canopy during the coronation. But no confirmation came from Buckingham Palace.
