The official coronation program has been released, and it is already making headlines for featuring a surprising family photo.
The photo, taken in late 2018 to celebrate King Charles’ 70th birthday, features the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan, alongside other senior royals, including King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their children.
Given the couple’s highly publicised departure from royal life and their criticisms of the institution, the inclusion of this particular photo has raised eyebrows.
A Message of Love and Inclusion?
Some have speculated that King Charles has included the photo to send a message of love and inclusion to his son and daughter-in-law, despite their ongoing disagreements with the Royal Family.
The program is likely to become a collector’s item in the future, given the ongoing drama surrounding the Sussexes and their relationship with the Royal Family.
Harry Attending Alone
The recent announcement that Harry will attend the coronation without Meghan, who will remain in the US with their son for his birthday, has sparked further speculation about the state of their relationship with the royals and whether they will ever fully reconcile.
While many global stars and politicians will be in attendance, President Biden has announced that he will not be coming.
The inclusion of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the coronation program is surprising given their strained relationship with the Royal Family.
However, some royal experts believe that King Charles is trying to send a message of love and inclusion to his son and daughter-in-law.
This family photo is sure to be closely scrutinized by the media and public, and any interactions between Prince Harry and the royals at the coronation will be analyzed.
Despite the family drama, the coronation program is still expected to be a collector’s item in the future.
