The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s potential attendance at King Charles III’s coronation has generated a lot of discussion. With that, many are wondering if their children, the three-year-old Prince Archie and the 21-month-old Princess Lilibet, might make an unexpected appearance.
Earlier this year, during his ITV interview with Tom Bradby, Prince Harry discussed the issue of his presence.
Lilibet might be deemed too young, but it’s very likely that their son Archie will attend his grandfather’s special milestone celebration.
The child, who will be four on the day of the coronation, was the same age as King Charles in 1953 when he attended the coronation of his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Last year’s Platinum Jubilee festivities saw Archie and Lilibet stay out of the spotlight, with Harry and Meghan only attending the National Service of Thanksgiving.
Prince Harry’s son Archie, however, will be playing his first significant role as a Prince at the age of three if royal watchers manage to catch a glimpse of him. No doubt, whether they celebrate in the UK or at their Montecito home, Prince Harry and Meghan will have something special planned for their son’s birthday.
The three children of the Prince and Princess of Wales are all anticipated to participate in the procession from Westminster Abbey that will follow the King’s coronation, according to a report from last week.
Following the service, The Times reported that Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis will likely accompany the King and Queen Consort as they leave the Abbey.
As Charles and Camilla make their way back to Buckingham Palace in the Golden State Coach, the kids are anticipated to follow in a carriage behind them. Just four days before the coronation, Charlotte will turn eight, while George and Louis will be nine and five, respectively.
In September, George, who is second in line to the throne, and Charlotte attended the state funeral of their great-grandmother, the Queen, at Westminster Abbey. Apparently thought to be too young to attend the service with his parents William and Kate, Prince Louis was not present.
