Beatrice and Eugenie likely to play key role in make Harry 'comfortable' at Coronation

NewsBeatrice and Eugenie likely to play key role in make Harry 'comfortable' at Coronation

On Wednesday’s instalment of This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby spoke to Omid Scobie about King Charles’s Coronation, which takes place on May 6.

After months of speculation, it was recently confirmed Prince Harry would be attending despite the ongoing rift between the Sussexes and the Royal Family.
His wife Meghan Markle however will remain in California to celebrate their son Archie’s fourth birthday.

With reports there is still some friction between Harry and certain members of the family, the This Morning hosts questioned who he’d be sitting with at Westminster Abbey.

Phillip asked: “I mean, he’s still close to some members of the family. There are members who he hasn’t had an issue with.

“I’m assuming he’ll be seated near them, so that’s a safe group of people.”

Omid explained it’s likely the Palace wants to try and avoid any sense of awkwardness that would be seen by the public on camera.

He replied: “You would hope that someone has taken that into account. Maybe he’s with the York girls, with Beatrice and Eugenie.

“People that he can have non-uncomfortable conversations with so it doesn’t look so stilted and awkward on camera.”

The 41-year-old highlighted how when both Harry and Meghan and Prince William and his wife Kate were seen together at the Commonwealth Service in 2020, it all appeared to be very frosty between them all.

He added: “I think that the Palace are really keen not to have a repeat of that moment because it doesn’t look good for anyone.”

However, it looks as though Harry’s involvement on the day will be brief as it’s believed he’ll be flying into England for a short stay.

Omid added: “Unfortunately, there’s nothing carved out in the ceremony for him.

“I would imagine if Harry and Meghan were still working royals and everything had worked out differently, there may have been some way for them to be orchestrated into it, or be visible in that big balcony moment later on after the ceremony.

“But, obviously that’s not the case and now people are wondering where Harry will be.”

Instead Harry is expected to fly back to California on the Sunday to rejoin his family to continue Archie’s birthday celebrations.

This Morning continues weekdays on ITV from 10am
