Prince Harry has not yet confirmed whether he will attend the coronation of his father, King Charles, which is scheduled to take place at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. In an interview with Tom Bradby for ITV, the Duke of Sussex stated that “there’s a lot that can happen between now and then.” But the door is always open. “The ball is in their court.” The interview, which is set to air on Sunday, is expected to address conflicts within the Royal Family, including reports of angry and physical altercations between Prince Harry and his brother Prince William. According to leaks from Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir, “Spare,” Prince William allegedly referred to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, as “difficult,” “rude,” and “abrasive.” The memoir also reportedly includes a claim that Prince William “grabbed [Prince Harry] by the collar, ripping [his] necklace, and he knocked [him] to the floor” during a heated argument.

In an interview with Good Morning America, Prince Harry was asked about referring to his brother as both his “beloved brother and arch-nemesis” in the memoir. Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, and Archewell, the companies of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have all declined to comment on the book, which is set to be released next week.

When asked about the decision to reveal personal family disputes to the public, Prince Harry stated that “I don’t know how staying silent is ever going to make things better.” He also refuted the suggestion that he was “invading the privacy” of others in the Royal Family, saying that “that would be the accusation from people that don’t understand or don’t want to believe that my family have been briefing the press.”

Despite expressing uncertainty about his role in the future of the monarchy, Prince Harry emphasized that he still believes in the institution. It is unclear at this time if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be invited to the coronation, as they are no longer considered “working royals.” Not attending the event could be seen as a snub and a sign of the current rift within the Royal Family. Prince Harry did return to the UK for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations last year but was not allowed to participate in the appearances on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
