According to the plans, the king’s disgraced brother, the Duke of York, has no place in the royal procession, and his daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will not attend either. In an event estimated to be about a third the size of HM The Queen’s in 1953, it seems there is a place for “working royals only.”
These include the King’s sister Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the newly named Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh and a few other adult royal cousins.
One person who will be joining is the youngest child of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Louis, who stole the show at the Queen’s platinum jubilee last June.
At four years old, he was deemed too young to attend her funeral procession two months later, with his older siblings George and Charlotte becoming the youngest royals ever to attend such an event.
According to the Times, Harry and Meghan’s children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, have not yet been invited to the coronation.
