King Charles coronation date sting in tail for Harry and Meghan says expert

A royal expert has claimed that King Charles’ decision to have his coronation on Archie Mountbatten-Windsor’s birthday has a 'sting in the tail.'

Daniela Elser said that the son of Prince Harry ’s fourth birthday “is going to be a bit of a rubbish one”.

She added that the considerations for the King’s coronation took into account a number of things, and so it was surprising seeing what got overlooked.

“While the timing of the FA Cup Final and the Epsom Derby were taken into account by Buckingham Palace, according to the Times, it’s pretty surprising that the sixth in line to the throne’s birthday was not.”

Writing in news.com.au, Daniela added: “That, or the King did not seem to mind co-opting the tot’s day for his own ends.”

She explained that the date chosen was likely either a ‘burn’ or an example of the things that Meghan and Harry have for so long been frustrated by.

“It is nigh on impossible not to read Charles’ choice of day for his big crown-a-thon as something of a burn or, at the very least, just the sort of callous disregarding that the Sussexes reportedly have long chafed against.”

Elser says that there is a concerning note to the choice of the weekend to have the coronation.

“The day that marks the addition of the first mixed-race member of the royal family is about to be superseded and overshadowed in the history books by the crowning of Grandpa Charles.”

Harry and Meghan will likely be feeling a “sting in the tail from the move” which comes as the world waits on news of whether Harry is going to press forward with his upcoming memoir.

“Whether intended or not, Charles’ choice of when to hold his coronation carries with it something of a sting in the tail for Harry and Meghan”, she said.

The Prince’s new book is allegedly regarded as a sticking point, with royal experts claiming earlier that there could be ‘no way back’ for the Sussexes if they push forward with it.

Tina Brown, a royal columnist has claimed that, because of this, the book will never “see the light of day”.

The Daily Star has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
