King Charles' Coronation Being on Archie's Birthday Is *Not* a Dig at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Pretty much every move the royals make is dissected and analyzed for possible feud clues. So, when news broke that King Charles’ coronation will be held on May 6, 2023 (aka his grandson, Archie’s, fourth birthday), eyebrows were definitely raised.

While it’s still not clear if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will return to the U.K. to watch when Charles is officially crowned King at Westminister Abbey next spring, we can all breathe a sigh of relief that, according to at least one royal expert, the date Charles and his team chose for the big day is *not* intended as a slight against the Sussex family.

In an interview with Page Six, royal author/feud expert (he penned Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors) Tom Bower said the fact that the coronation is happening on Archie’s birthday is a total coincidence.

“Archie’s birthday was the last thing they thought about,” Bower said. “The date was chosen because it’s just before the state opening of Parliament and Charles will want to appear as King with his crown and the whole ceremonial (robes).”

The State Opening of Parliament acts as the formal kick off to a new session of Parliament and one of the key moments of the event is a speech from the monarch, so missing the opening of Parliament would mean missing a major royal duty for Charles. Bower fully dismissed the idea that the coronation date might have anything to do with Harry and Meghan—full stop.

“They looked at what was happening in Britain,” he explained. “They didn’t look at what was happening in Montecito (where the Sussex family currently reside). The idea that anyone was concerned with that is nonsense.”

This has been your daily update on the state of the royal family’s feud (according to people not actually involved in said feud).
