King Charles ready to ‘give in’ to Meghan and Harry’s ‘demands’ for Coronation

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly made several “demands” as they negotiate with Buckingham Palace over whether they will attend the King’s Coronation.

King Charles is set to “capitulate” to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Coronation “demands”, according to a broadcaster. According to an inside source, the couple have asked for King Charles to allow them onto the Buckingham Palace balcony with the other royals for the event.

King Charles is willing to hear out the Sussexes on at least some of their Coronation requests, says to writer and broadcaster Dominique Samuels.

“First of all, many people are wondering why the King invited them to the Coronation in the first place. Secondly, I’m not surprised they have this list of demands because the King is really prepared to capitulate to all of them,” said commentator Dominique Samuels.

She continued: “On the bright side, what can happen is a bit of a compromise. One of the things they have raised is that they want their children to be invited, they want their children to be included. It will be Archie’s birthday…at least maybe we could compromise on including the children.”

Although Meghan and Harry received invitations to the event, their children Prince Archie Harrison and Princess Lilibet Diana were not invited to the Coronation.

However, Meghan and Harry reportedly have other demands with a source claiming that the Duke and Duchess are negotiating what role they should play during the ceremony.

“In terms of them wanting to be on the royal balcony, it’s likely that will be reserved for working royals and they chose to step away so they need to deal with that reality,” Ms Samuels added on Sky News Australia.

There have been claims that intense negotiations are taking place between Meghan, Harry and the Palace, according to an insider speaking to OK! Magazine.

Prince Archie’s fourth birthday is May 6, the same day as the Coronation. The Sussexes reportedly want a “celebration or acknowledgement” of this incorporated into the day’s plans.

Meghan and Harry also wish to join the rest of the Royal Family on the Buckingham Palace balcony, according to the source.

This request is likely to be a sticking point as the balcony appearance is reserved for working royals while Meghan and Harry quit the Firm in 2020.

The Coronation will take place on May 6 but will see festivities throughout the weekend including a concert at Windsor Castle Sunday, May 7. Monday, May 8, will be a bank holiday in the UK to mark the event.
