Vanessa Feltz contends that Meghan and Harry’s refusal to attend Coronation would diminish their status.

Radio and TV personality Vanessa Feltz has said that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must attend King Charles’s Coronation on May 6 or risk diminishing their “cachet”. Feltz commented that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex need to “reinforce their royal credentials” by attending and that if they do not come, “they must come” or “they don’t count”. The couple have been invited but have not yet confirmed whether they will attend. Feltz expressed her view that it would be “incredibly rude” of them not to attend and criticising their lack of response as “hedging your bets and weighing up your options”.
