Prince Harry Will Be Treated Like 'A Pariah' & 'Shunted Aside' At Coronation, Expert Claims
Prince Harry will return to the U.K. for King Charles' coronation ceremony, but experts believe the Duke of Sussex will be given the cold shoulder upon his arrival.
"My guess is that Harry will be treated like something of a pariah and that he is well aware of that," Christopher Andersen told an outlet.
Although the tension between Harry and the royal family is ongoing, he has prioritized supporting his father.
"So, you have to give him credit for being willing to show up anyway. There is a humiliation factor here. Watching the other royals share center stage with the king and queen while he is probably going to be shunted aside – this will likely be painful and incredibly frustrating for Harry," Andersen shared. "I have a feeling that even Prince Andrew will be afforded better treatment and shown more respect by the crown – that’s how deep the animosity toward the Sussexes runs in royal circles these days."
Despite the Spare author's inability to reconcile with the royal family before flying to England, he will have to remain relaxed and avoid the drama.
"Harry knows that he's just going to have to follow his grandmother’s 'keep calm and carry on' motto," the royal expert said. "He'll have to just grit his teeth and get through it. I fully expect Harry to be sidelined and snubbed. We can look forward to lots of photographs of Harry standing alone, looking downcast and grim, even visibly seething."
Harry has spent the past few years criticizing his famous brood, but Charles is reportedly excited his son will be present during his crowning.
"The king does want his youngest son to experience such a significant moment in his life," Kinsey Schofield said. "It was Charles' wish that Prince Harry attend. Duty is still a priority to Harry, and he feels like it is his responsibility to attend. That being said, expect familiar and friendly characters like cousins Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie to make small talk with the 'exiled' prince."
