Prince Harry ‘will attend coronation alone’ as Meghan won’t be ‘brave enough’: expert

Prince Harry will attend his father’s coronation “alone” because his wife Meghan Markle will not be “brave or strong enough”, according to the late Princess Diana’s former butler.

Paul Burrell, who worked for Diana for more than 10 years until her sudden death in 1997, said the king had “maintained a moral high ground” by inviting exiled royals to the coronation on 6 May.

“It’s likely to be incredibly uncomfortable if they do get involved, especially for Meghan,” the 64-year-old told Closer magazine. “Are they ready to face the music?”

“I don’t think Meghan is brave or strong enough to be there – she needs to look it in the eyes of the family that got pushed under the bus,” he continued.

“But I think Harry may come alone and she has probably told him that she will not be able to be with him if he does.”

Prince Harry will attend his father’s coronation without his wife Meghan Markle, Princess Diana’s former butler.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who recently received their invitations to the May ceremony – are still considering whether to make the 5,459-mile long journey.

Burrell said that ultimately, “the ball is well and truly in Harry and Meghan’s court,” adding that it would be difficult for Harry to see Queen Consort Camilla “where his mother could be.”

In his blistering memoir “Spare,” Harry pulls no punches in revealing family secrets and private conversations.

In a “60 Minutes” interview promoting the book, the Duke famously described Camilla as a “villain” and a third person in the marriage between Charles and Diana.

The comment was reportedly the driving factor in the king’s decision to evict the Sussexes from their Frogmore cottage.

Representatives for the Sussexes have said an “immediate decision” on whether they will travel “will not be disclosed.”

If they go, they will be met with a “cold shoulder” from senior members of the exiled royal family.

“They will be put on the backburner by lots of relatives. One told me, ‘I hope they are sitting in Iceland,'” a royal source told the Daily Mail.

“Most families just don’t want anything more to do with them. If they have to see him at the coronation, that’s fine, but they don’t want to socialize with him.
