Prince George, Charlotte and Louis’ role in King Charles’ coronation has been revealed
Prince William’s children are set to attend the king’s coronation, according to a report.
Leaked plans show Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will play formal roles in the May 6 procession at Westminster Abbey, reports The Times.
The children will join King Charles and Queen Camilla at the end of the ceremony, but Kensington Palace has yet to confirm the report.
Plans received by the outlet show George, 9, Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 5, will accompany their parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, in a carriage behind a Gold State Coach, which is transporting the King and Queen.
It is believed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, were not invited to the event.
According to leaked plans, neither the Duke and Duchess of Sussex nor Prince Andrew, the Duke of York will attend the procession.
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will also sit in the procession, plans show.
Kensington Palace declined to comment.
While Buckingham Palace remained silent about the upcoming extravagance, he teased that the coronation will be a rolled-back affair.
The 74-year-old’s coronation will “reflect the role of the monarch today and look to the future, while being rooted in long-standing traditions and pageantry,” Buckingham Palace said previously.
“The king asked to be more humble,” royal author Hugo Vickers told the outlet. “This is a greatly reduced procession.”
The procession is said to be one-third the size of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953.
King Charles, who was just four when his late mother was crowned at age 25, attended only parts of the three-hour service and played no formal role on the big day.
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who recently received their invitations to attend the ceremony in May, are still debating whether or not to make the 5,459-mile journey.
If they leave, the exiled royals will be met with the “cold shoulder” of senior members of the royal family, according to one report.
In January, Harry sensationally refused to attend the event, saying “there is a lot to discuss” before making that decision.
“A lot can happen in between,” he said in an interview. “But the door is always open. They have the ball.”
