The coronation of King Charles III will be the perfect opportunity for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to find more things to ‘whinge’ about to their American benefactors, according to Sunrise presenter Natalie Barr.
The Channel Seven breakfast host, 55, took aim at the Sussexes on Monday while speaking to The Sun’s royal correspondent Emily Andrews about reports the couple is still ‘locked in talks’ with Buckingham Palace over their attendance.
Barr said the Royal Family risks its own goal by allowing Harry and Meghan to return to the fold for the historic ceremony on May 6, because they could head back to California with fresh material for their ongoing smear campaign against The Firm.
Harry and Meghan have already sold royal secrets to the highest bidder thanks to their multimillion-dollar deals with U.S. media giants such as Netflix, and giving them front-row seats to the most significant royal occasion in recent memory could leave the monarchy exposed to further ‘truth bombs’.
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are yet to confirm they are attending the coronation, Ms. Andrews said ‘my money is that they will come’ and they will ‘bring the kids with them’.
Barr replied cautiously: ‘Okay… because that will create more for them to talk about – and possibly whinge about.’
Harry and Meghan have yet to confirm whether they will attend the ceremony, with sources claiming ‘tense’ negotiations are underway between the Sussexes and the palace about what role – if any – they will have.
If they do come, Harry, who once called his stepmother Camilla Parker-Bowles a ‘villain’, will have to bow before his father’s wife as the Queen.
He will also have to give the Home Office 28 days’ notice before arriving in the UK so that adequate security can be arranged for his family.
