Prince Harry found way to be loving father and loyal son in Coronation trip

Prince Harry was praised by a royal expert who reckons he found the perfect balance between "loving father and loyal son" at the Coronation last weekend.

The Duke of Sussex flew over for King Charles III's Coronation on May 6, the same day as Prince Archie, Harry's son, celebrated his fourth birthday.

With just 28 hours in the United Kingdom, Harry's fleeting visit to the English capital was described by a royal commentator as a key moment showing just how Harry splits his time.

His decision to make a quick trip to the Coronation and be back in time for his son's birthday was, according to Kristen Meinzer, a good indication for the Duke.

Expert Meinzer, speaking to Insider, said: "I don't see anything scandalous about Harry flying in for his father's big event, and then heading back home to be with his family for his son's 4th birthday.

"This is something all of us do: split our time between our given family and our chosen family.

"Anyone who's reading more into this should ask themselves: Did Harry snub his duties? Did he betray anyone? No, he did neither. He found a way to be both a loving father and loyal son."

Prince Harry had confirmed his attendance at the same time Meghan Markle declined an invitation, which, according to expert Meinzer, showed the couple were more than capable of splitting their duties.

She continued: "The decision for Harry to go and for Meghan to stay home with the children on Archie's birthday is a brilliant way to split the difference.

"I've always maintained that the Sussexes must also do what's best for their own little family and their own mental health."

The royal commentator did note however the Coronation was not a place for "reconciliation" and that the Duke recognised it was "important for him to be there for his father".

It comes as The Daily Star previously reported one word which appears to have divided the Duke of Sussex from older brother Prince William.
