Earl Spencer, the former brother-in-law of King Charles, has been left off the guest list for the upcoming coronation, according to reports.
This move has surprised and shocked many members of Princess Diana’s family, who had expected him to be invited.
The exclusion is expected to revive tensions between supporters of Diana and supporters of Camilla, particularly after the breakup of Charles’s marriage and his renewed relationship with Camilla.
Diana had reportedly felt scorned by the relationship between Charles and Camilla.
The lack of an invitation to Earl Spencer, who had vowed to look after Diana’s sons, has left no room for diplomacy, according to a friend of the family.
This news is likely to generate significant interest among royal watchers and those who follow the ongoing saga of the Royal Family.
It highlights the complex relationships within the family and the tensions that can arise from past events and relationships.
The decision to leave out many of the aristocratic old guard, including 24 dukes who attended Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953, and to include celebrities such as Ant and Dec, Nick Cave, and Dynamo, underscores the new power shift in the Royal Family.
The absence of Earl Spencer and the Duchess of York, who still shares a home with Prince Andrew, is likely to be seen as significant by some observers.
The decision to invite the new Queen’s ex-husband, Brigadier Andrew Parker-Bowles, adds another layer of intrigue to the event.
