Prince Harry wished Archbishop of Canterbury 'good luck' in friendly joke at Coronation

NewsPrince Harry wished Archbishop of Canterbury 'good luck' in friendly joke at Coronation

According to expert lip reader Jacqui Press, Harry appeared to say “good luck” to the Archbishop who responded with “thank you”, MailOnline reported.

This light-hearted exchange occurred after Charles had reportedly asked Mr Welby to help secure Harry’s attendance, but was met with resistance from Prince William.

The King reportedly initiated talks with him to discuss a possible arrangement that would enable them to be present at the event.

It’s been suggested that Charles was of the view that their nonattendance could be more disruptive than their attendance and was willing to make compromises to convince them to come.

According to reports, Prince William had reservations about their participation, as he feared his brother would turn the occasion into a publicity stunt and steal the show.

Mr Welby has played a vital role in easing tensions between the Sussexes and the Royal Family as he is a trusted confidant for both parties.

However, there have been claims that Mr Welby was upset after Meghan falsely claimed during an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021 that he had secretly married her and Harry before their wedding, which would have been illegal.

Harry’s appearance at the Coronation marked his first public appearance with the royals since the release of his controversial memoir ‘Spare’.

He was seated in the third row, behind his brother Prince William, sister-in-law Princess Kate, and his young niece and nephew, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

During the event, Harry also spoke with his cousin Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, as well as Jack Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie, whom he is close with, unlike many other members of the Royal Family.

He commented on Eugenie’s pregnancy bump and was seated two rows behind his brother William during the ceremony.

During the service, Harry, along with the other royals seated around him, paid homage to the King by reciting the words: “God save King Charles. Long live King Charles. May the King live forever.”
