I ALWAYS believed that the Duke of Sussex would be there to see his father King Charles crowned as King.
There would be no point in him being a member of the Royal Family if he was not going to be present at the biggest occasion since the Queen’s funeral.
The coronation will be an incredible spectacle, seen around the world.
And there is still a lot of love for Harry from Charles, even though the prince insulted the Queen Consort in his book Spare. No one was nicer to Harry than Camilla.
It was right for the King to invite both Harry and Meghan.
I suspect the reason the Duchess will not be by Harry’s side is because Meghan is aware she will not receive a warm welcome.
She has rubbished our royal family — and the public might not be too forgiving.
As a general rule, it seems people under 30 see Meghan as a victim and those over 30 think she is a bad influence.
The fact that the coronation takes place on May 6 — the fourth birthday of Harry and Meghan’s son Archie — is just a good excuse for her not to make the trip to London.
There will also be concern in the Royal family that anything they say to Harry in private will later be revealed by him in a book or a TV programme.
But despite the hurt he caused with Spare, Harry is certainly due his place in Westminster Abbey.
After all — he served his country with distinction in Afghanistan and was very active with his charities.
