Prince Harry will travel alone to the UK for the coronation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently announced. Gayle King, a close friend of the couple, has praised the decision.
Despite the tensions between the couple and the royal family following the release of Spare, the CBS News host claimed that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan were in a “really good place” and had made the “best” choice. She stated, “I believe they chose what is best for them. But I think he should go, especially for his father, King Charles.
Gayle continued, “You’ve seen the two of them together and I know what they have is really true-blue. You saw them together at the LA Lakers this week. And it’s admirable to see how happy they make each other.
The journalist was introduced to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex by her close friend Oprah Winfrey, and the two have since become good friends. Gayle even discussed helping Harry and Meghan after Prince Philip’s passing on her show in 2021, following the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah.
She said on SiriusXM, “If something, God forbid, had happened to him, the interview would not have run at this particular time.” “However, the interview was completed and planned before he was admitted to the hospital. However, a lot of people have brought up that issue.
Harry will be flying to London soon to witness the coronation of his father, King Charles, and stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla. It is unknown whether the King’s son will participate in the coronation or will just be present. “I’d be surprised if he had a specific role,” said Emily Nash, royal editor for HELLO!, “but I think he will attend the ceremony like other members of the royal family without necessarily taking part.”
According to the official statement confirming the coronation, “The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.” This may be due to the fact that Prince Archie’s birthday is on May 6, the day of the coronation.
