Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s “hypocrisy” exposed by royal fans
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, who have been invited to attend King Charles’ coronation, would like the fourth birthday of their eldest child, Prince Archie, to factor into coronation plans, but some people don’t think not that this is a major issue with Sussex.
Despite being grandchildren of the 74-year-old monarch, Meghan and Harry’s children are believed not to have been invited, with sources citing they are “very young”.
This will provide a major headache for the Sussexes as the coronation date – May 6 – is also Archie’s birthday. There are reportedly fears the couple could ‘eclipse’ the coronation if they try to go overboard for Archie’s birthday celebrations.
But some royal fans think differently as they pointed out that Harry was playing polo on his son’s third birthday last year, with one saying: “As last year Harry played polo polo on his birthday, I don’t quite understand the upheaval.”
Some claimed it would be the Duke’s “hypocrisy” if he disagreed with the Cabinet over this reason.
Another added: Archie’s dad was riding a horse with his friend Nacho Figueras, the Argentinian actor who appeared in the Netflix documentary Sussex and was also credited in the Spare autobiography acknowledgments.
The third commented: “Given that Prince Harry played polo on Archie’s birthday this year, I don’t think they place too much emphasis on spending the whole day celebrating the birthday of their son.”
Harry and Meghan are said to have a number of different demands that must be met if they are to attend, including some recognition of their son’s celebration.
Royal columnist Lee Cohen, who thinks the weekend should be just one thing, said: “It’s terribly petty, but the Sussexes, who no longer have their royal platform, seem to relish any opportunity to attempt to eclipse a royal occasion.
“It’s not as if the Royal Family are looking for opportunities to upstage the antics of the Sussexes, quite the contrary.”
Archie and Lilibet may have new royal titles, but it doesn’t look like they’ll appear at the coronation with their older cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and possibly Prince Louis.
Charles’s accession to the throne means the young people of Sussex, who live According to royal historian and author Dr Tessa Dunlop, it would be “strange” if Archie was not invited to the event.
