King Charles' Coronation Drama: William Would "Much Rather Harry Wasn't There," Insider Claims

The relationship between the brothers “is now non-existent”

Whether or not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will attend King Charles' coronation is the burning question on everyone's mind. Despite the drama that has been going on between members of the Royal Family and the couple, it would be shocking if the King's son opted not to go to the once-in-a-lifetime event. However, after the shocking accusations made in the couple's Netflix series, Harry & Meghan, aired followed by the publication of the Prince's shocking tell-all memoir, Spare, it seems very unlikely they will make the trip from Montecito to London for the swanky soiree. And, according to a report, Harry's own brother doesn't even want him there.
