Plans for Queen Consort Camilla's grandchildren to be involved in the King's coronation have been labelled “wholly improper” amid reports that Archie and Lilibet have not been invited.
It is understood that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children have been deemed too young to attend the service at Westminster Abbey.
The Prince and Princess of Wales are said to be “pondering” whether or not to take Prince Louis, who will turn five next month.

However, the King's eldest grandchildren – Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, whose eighth birthday comes days before the coronation, will both be in attendance.
Reports suggest that Camilla's four grandchildren, who are all aged between 13 and 15, will be handed official roles.
The Mirror reports that the King's wife is hoping that they would carry the canopy that is placed over her as she is anointed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been invited, and are expected at Westminster Abbey on May 6, but palace officials consider their children – Archie, three, and one-year-old Lilibet – too young to attend the ceremony.
A Buckingham Palace source told The Sunday Times that it would be “wholly improper” for discussions over roles for the Queen Consort's grandchildren but not her husband's.
Asked if Archie and Lilibet were invited, one royal source simply noted that they were "very young".
Harry and Meghan are yet to confirm their attendance and are understood to be weighing up the logistics.
But if they do decide to make the trip across the Atlantic, the Sussexes will not be invited to take part in the official balcony appearance, it has been claimed.
A friend of the family told MailOnline: "They will be given the cold shoulder by very many relatives. One said to me, 'I hope they'll be seated in Iceland'.
"Many of the family just want nothing more to do with them. If they have to see them at the Coronation then so be it, but they do not want to socialise with them."
Harry and Meghan fled the Royal Family in early 2020 when they stepped back from official duties.
They have since made a series of bombshell claims about royal life and accusations against the royals in interviews and TV shows, deepening the rift between the pair and Harry's family.
They were expected to stay at Frogmore Cottage for the duration of their stay, enjoying Archie's birthday before the ceremony.
