Prince Harry should be invited to the coronation of King Charles, say the majority of Britons | Royal | News

The majority of Britons believe Prince Harry should be invited to attend King Charles’s coronation, a poll has found. According to the latest Ipsos poll for the London Evening Standard, two thirds of Britons think the duke should attend the ceremony at Westminster Abbey in May.

It suggested that 30 percent of the public disagreed and thought he should stay away after the highly personal and potentially damaging revelations about his relatives in his autobiography.

The poll revealed a striking age difference between those who support the duke’s invitation to his father’s celebrations and those who do not.

The 55 and older age group was almost split in half, with 42 percent against its presence and 47 percent in favor.

On the other hand, three-quarters of those aged 18 to 34 supported the duke’s presence, as did the majority, 65 percent of those aged 35 to 54.

The survey comes at the time Prince HarrySpare’s latest memoirs have sparked several controversies due to the statements made by the Duke of Sussex.

Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace have declined to comment on the accusations the Duke made against other members of the family in ‘Spare’.

In an interview with The Telegraph’s Bryony Gordon, the Duke demanded his family apologize to the Duchess of Sussex, saying: “Because you know what you did, and I now know why you did it. And you got caught, so just come face to face and then we can all move on.

However, the memoir has had little impact on the reputation of the royal family in general, despite the controversies: 53 percent say they are in favor of the family and 51 percent are in favor of the king.
