Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive at the Ripple of Hope Awards in New York
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle walked the red carpet at the Ripple of Hope Awards in New York City on Tuesday night.
Some British elite reportedly want Prince Harry and Meghan Markle iced out of King Charles III’s coronation next spring after the release of their Netflix docuseries, “Harry & Meghan.”
Former conservative politician David Mellor told the Daily Mail, “They make money out of selling their family down the river. I think it should be made clear that the British people do not want them there,” in reference to the upcoming celebration for the king in May.
“They shouldn’t come to the coronation. They categorically shouldn’t come,” he declared, also adding that Brits “would be perfectly entitled to boo” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex if they attend.
While Prince Harry was born into the monarchy, Meghan Markle previously served as a senior royal upon her marriage to Harry in May 2018 until announcing their departure in January 2020.

Current Parliament member and former Conservative Party Leader Iain Duncan Smith said of the couple to the Daily Mail, “If they dislike the Royal Family so much why would they attend the coronation?”
British author Lady Antonia Fraser said, “I hope they don’t come because I want the king and queen to be the center of attention. It worries me that if they come the cameras might waste time on them. They should stay holding hands in Hollywood.”
King Charles III, who took the throne when his mother Queen Elizabeth II died in September, will be formally coronated in May.
