King Charles III coronation details revealed by Palace

King Charles has been warned excluding Prince Archie Harrison and Princess Lilibet Diana from the Coronation weekend in May will be a “huge mistake”. Australian journalist Daniela Elser commented on the report the children of the Sussexes are not being included in the Coronation plans, likely due to their young age and their parents’ non-working status within the Firm. Failing to show a willingness to include all his grandchildren at such a historic time, however, could reflect badly on the monarch, Ms Elser said. In a comment piece, she wrote: “The King has left his grandchildren Prince Archie and Princess Lili out of his coronation plans. And that is a huge mistake.

“Reports have suggested that the selection of guests who will fill the Abbey’s pews will be a representative cross-section of a multicultural 21st century Britain. Leaving Archie and Lili out of the whole three-day event makes something of a mockery of all that enthusiastic drum-banging about just how smashing this inclusiveness business is. How can the King bring a politically, culturally and socially fractured Britain together if he doesn’t even have it in him to bring all of his grandchildren together?” The commentator added that Lilibet and Archie are “completely innocent” when it comes to the feud between the Firm and their parents. In her piece for, the commentator also wrote that, while it is true that it’s not even yet known whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the Coronation, showing their children are welcomed during the celebrations “would tip the scales”. She added: “By leaving them both out of coronation plans, His Majesty is all but ensuring that the current rift between London and Montecito will only become more deeply entrenched – and that it will last for generations.”
