Unsurprisingly, Prince Harry’s incendiary memoir only deepened the rift between him and his royal family.
King Charles has decided his divergent son will play no part in his upcoming coronation after leaking countless family secrets, royal insiders claim.
“As things stand, there is no role for Harry in the service,” a source told The Sunday Times.
The King has completely excluded Prince Harry from the coronation scenario, meaning he will only be a member of the public if he chooses to attend the May 6 event.
In a major break with tradition, King Charles will not require the six royal dukes to kneel before him to “pay their respects” before touching the crown and kissing the monarch’s right cheek, the newspaper reported.
Instead, only Prince William – the son who hasn’t released several bombshell reports to the public – will carry out the tradition.
Sources have told The Sunday Times that King Charles and Prince William are furious after Harry’s autobiography ‘Spare’ leaked this week.
Prince Harry has ruthlessly portrayed his brother as an abusive bully who threw him down in one of the palace cottages and even called him his “sworn enemy”.
Although he mainly targeted his big brother, the ex-royal also took shots at his father and hammered home his previous claims that King Charles was an absent father who abandoned him following his mother’s death .
“The King is no less hurt because he personally has not been at the center of much of the book’s anger and frustration. He feels it just as keenly, it’s no less painful for him because the focus is on his son rather than him. There is a lot of pain in the family,” a friend of the monarchs told The Times.
It is unclear whether Prince Harry will attend his father’s monumental coronation.
Buckingham Palace insiders have said King Charles still plans to invite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the days following the release of the couple’s bombshell documentary on Netflix. Despite the feud, a “door will always remain ajar” for the duo, the sources said last month.
But Prince Harry refused to commit to attending the event, according to the second trailer for his explosive upcoming interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby.
The former royal said his attendance would depend on his family.
“There’s a lot to talk about and I really hope they’re willing to sit down and talk about it,” Harry said.
The Duke of Sussex has repeatedly claimed he wants the bad blood between him and his family to end, but blames them for prolonging the feud – ‘They have shown no willingness to reconcile’, he claimed declared.
Despite his moans, Prince Harry has continued to expose family fights and secrets on several forums over the past few years.
