Prince Harry snubbed at King Charles’ coronation as new details on religious ceremony are revealed

Unlike his elder brother, Prince William, Prince Harry will not take part in King Charles’ coronation in an official capacity.

Harry will not speak or play a significant part in his father’s historic coronation because his name was not mentioned in the coronation service’s liturgy.

William will be the only member of the royal family to speak at the service in addition to having a formal role.

According to the service’s liturgy, William will kneel before his father halfway through the ceremony, place his hands in his, and recite: “I, William, Prince of Wales, pledge my loyalty to you and faith and truth I will bear unto you, as your liege man of life and limb. God please help me.

William will be the only royal to pay tribute to Charles in this manner during the coronation service. He will also show up when the King is given the Royal Robe and Stole. William will help the bishops and the Baroness Merron put the robe on Charles.

Harry may have been passed over, but Prince George, the son of William, was chosen to be one of Charles’ Pages of Honor. George will participate in a coronation as the youngest future king ever, according to The Telegraph.

Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, William and Kate’s other two children, aren’t expected to play as significant a role as their brother but will still be present for their grandfather’s coronation and most likely be in the audience.

Harry moved to California with his wife, Meghan Markle, in 2020, leaving behind his responsibilities as a senior member of the royal family, so it is not surprising that he won’t be participating in the coronation service.

Harry’s attendance at the coronation was previously confirmed by Buckingham Palace, and the Duchess of Sussex will stay on British soil with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. The day of King Charles’ coronation will also be Prince Archie’s fourth birthday.

According to a source who spoke to Page Six, Harry will fly back to the United States right after the coronation services so he can attend his son’s birthday party.

On Saturday, May 6, Charles and Camilla will be crowned at Westminster Abbey. In October of last year, the announcement was made public by Buckingham Palace.

A “much larger in scale” procession back to the Palace will follow the 11 a.m. local time start of the coronation services.

Regarding the expected guest list and religious ceremony on Saturday, new information has surfaced.

More than 2,200 people, including 203 international representatives and roughly 100 Heads of State, are expected to attend Charles’ coronation, according to the Palace.

400 young people from charitable organizations chosen by The King and The Queen Consort and the UK Government will have the chance to watch the Coronation Service and Processions from inside St. Margaret’s Church, Westminster Abbey, with the Dean and Chapter of Westminster’s kind permission, according to the press release.
