Prince Harry will not attend Charles’ coronation in protest

Prince Harry may not attend his father’s eventual coronation as king if “Queen Camilla” is anointed next to him. This new “red line” has emerged while all of the current focus may be on whether or not Prince Harry will make it back home for the celebrations to mark Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee this summer.

Given that Charles is known to have longed for many years for his wife to be made queen — a wish that was recently granted by the current monarch — it seems unlikely that he would agree to a watering-down of her status by holding a separate coronation for her.

Because it is customary for a new king and queen to be anointed and crowned in a joint ceremony, it is also unlikely that Charles would agree to a watering-down of her status.

This information was first published in the monthly issue of the British satirical magazine Private Eye. In spite of the fact that the publication is well-known for the comical covers and mock news pieces it publishes, it is also regarded highly for the investigative journalism and insider gossip it publishes.

The following is an excerpt from a report that appeared in Private Eye, the entirety of which is not available online: “One red line has just developed, though.

If Camilla is to be anointed and crowned just a few feet from where his mother’s coffin lay in Westminster Abbey, Prince Harry has no intention of attending the coronation of his father and will not be attending the event.

“[The queen] may have granted her approval for Camilla to become queen consort, but Harry is unyielding in his stance,” the author writes.

“When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me,” the queen said in a written message to commemorate the 70th anniversary of her ascension to the throne.

“And it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service,” the queen added. “When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles.
