It's been confirmed that Prince Harry will attend King Charles' coronation without Meghan Markle and their two toddlers. However, despite Buckingham Palace's excitement to welcome the Duke of Sussex, critics are annoyed by the Suits star's decision to stay home, including former friend Lizzie Cundy.
Cundy's friendship with Meghan dates back to her time as an actress, but once the Northwestern alum joined the royal family, the pair lost contact. "I think Meghan is not coming to the Coronation because she knows she's going to get booed but she's putting her own feelings and worries about being booed before her children," the British socialite told an outlet. "I think it's a travesty that Lilibet and Archie are not going to be at their grandfather's Coronation."
"What will Harry and Meghan say to them when they're older? When they say, 'Why weren't we there at the most historical moment in British history? Why weren't we on that balcony?'" the television personality pondered. "What will Meghan answer? 'I knew I was going to get booed so I didn't want to go.'"
"She's putting herself before anyone and in fact, Harry by boasting about the Taliban has put his own family and the security threat at its highest form," she added. "Not only the royal family but the whole nation."
The radio personality later claimed the Sussexes were egotistical. "I think the two of them are utterly selfish," Cundy exclaimed. "I find it really sad not just for Lilibet and Archie who are going to miss out on the biggest monumental day, but for King Charles who yet again won't see his grandchildren and they won't be able to enjoy this special day with him."
"I really do think they should hang their heads in shame, I do believe Archie and Lilibet when they grow up will say 'Mummy and daddy, why did you stop us going?'" she added.
Cundy spoke with The Mirror.
