Harry and Meghan ‘absolutely cannot be on that balcony’
Prince Harry and son Prince Charles
Speaking to Fox Nerws, Kinsey Schofield, host of the To Di For Daily podcast, said it was significant that Charles had decided against meeting up with Harry despite the 38-year-old coming to London for the beginning of his privacy case against Associated Newspapers at London’s High Court.
She said: “The king’s diary is typically built months in advance. “But the idea that the king had this time off and chose not to engage with his son tells me that Charles does not trust his boy.
“He does not want any drama before the coronation, and he clearly thinks Harry’s grievances are petty.
“If Harry and Meghan attend the king’s coronation, they should bring their parkas because things are going to be ice cold.”
Charles’ unwillingness to make out time for his son “was a stark example of consequence”, she added.

The two ‘real messages’ behind Queen Camilla’s crown choice for the Coronation
There are two “real messages” behind the decision taken by the Queen Consort not to get a new crown done for her Coronation, according to Dr George Gross, visiting research fellow in Theology at King’s College London.
The Coronation expert believes Camilla’s decision to use a modified Queen Mary’s crown is part of the “sensible” choices being taken by the royals regarding the historic event, at a time when Britons are experiencing an uncertain economic climate.
Mentioning the “messages” behind Camilla’s decision, Dr Gross told Express.co.uk: “One, you’ve got so many, so why make a new crown when you’ve got so many in the locker?
“Given the cost of living crisis, I think, it just makes sense to reuse one they’ve already got.”
Speaking about another message behind this choice, Dr Gross said: “I think it’s also not wanting to make too bold a statement.
“I think this is trying to do this in a very sensible, very considered [way], they know this is a big magnificent occasion, but they also know that we’re in a cost of living crisis. So care is being taken.”
Prince Harry ‘goes nuclear’ with Royal Family and still has ‘serious chip on his shoulder’
Prince Harry has been accused of going “nuclear” on the Royal Family as he aims to take down both the Firm and the media with his appearance in court.
The prince is one of several celebrities who have brought a claim against the publisher Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL) for breaches of privacy, an allegation that ANL denies, however Harry has also claimed his family “withheld information” from him regarding phone hacking being carried out by the press.
Harry flew in from California and has appeared in court for three out of the four days of the hearing in support of the case, in spite of there being no need for him to appear in person.
In his witness statement the prince wrote of the “Institution” withholding information from him regarding the possibility of hom taking legal action against those who allegedly invaded his privacy.
He said: “The Institution made it clear that we did not need to know anything about phone hacking and it was made clear to me that the Royal Family did not sit in the witness box because that could open up a can of worms.”
