Prince Harry, Meghan Markle may attend the coronation to receive the ‘blessing’ of Princess Lilibeth

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are considering whether to attend King Charles’ upcoming coronation in May 2023.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex held the ceremony at their home in Montecito, California, with guests including Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, and the baby’s godfather, Tyler Perry.

Zoe Forsey and Russell Myers, host Pod saves the king podcast, discussed Baptism and Coronation last week, via Express UK.

Forsey highlighted the importance of royal christenings, saying they were “a really big deal”, with religion playing a central role for the monarchy.

royal editor Daily Mirror, Myers agreed: “The King is the head of the Church of England, the Anglican Church, and he naturally finds baptism a very sacred event, a reason to celebrate unity and new beginnings. I think it’s a shame it’s not there.”

At Archie’s christening in the summer of 2019, there were royal photos of the family, including the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, and no pictures of Lilibeth.

Myers added that the Sussexes “want their children to have a royal connection”. He said: “I think it means that Harry and Meghan will come to the Coronation and I think they will bring their family because they want to celebrate the unity with the royal family.”

Forsey suggested the Sussexes may choose to hold a christening “blessing” if they return to the UK in May, comparing it to similar events at the wedding of King Charles and Queen Camilla in 2005.

Myers responded, “I think it’s a good shout because I think they are [Harry and Meghan] want to do it,” before adding, “I think they’re coming now.”
