King Charles III’s office has been in contact with Prince Harry about the new monarch’s coronation, raising the possibility that the prince will attend the historic ceremony despite tensions within the royal family.

If Harry and his wife Meghan were to attend the May 6 coronation at Westminster Abbey in London, it would be the first meeting between Charles and his younger son since Harry deepened the rift within the House of Windsor by revealing family secrets in his best-selling book, “Reserve .”

A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan, also known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, confirmed on Sunday that Harry had received “email correspondence” from the royal office about the coronation. Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“An immediate decision on whether the Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time,” the couple’s office said in a statement.

Speculation over whether Harry and Meghan would be invited to the coronation has run rampant since the release of Harry’s explosive memoir, which contained damning allegations of intrigue behind palace walls.

The revelations, including details of private conversations with his father and brother, Prince William, created tensions between Harry and his family that became public when he and his wife moved to North America in 2020.

The book also contained allegations that members of the royal family regularly feed the press unflattering information about other members of the House of Windsor in exchange for positive coverage of themselves.

The prince singled out Camilla, the queen consort, accusing her of leaking private conversations to the media as she tried to rehabilitate her image after marrying Charles. Camilla was once vilified for her long-term affair with Charles, which contributed to the breakdown of his marriage to the late Prince Diana, Harry and William’s mother.

The acrimony between Harry and his family once again spilled into the public eye this week when the Sussexes admitted they had been asked to vacate their UK home.

Frogmore Cottage, in the grounds of Windsor Castle west of London, was the couple’s main residence before they gave up royal duties and moved to Montecito, a wealthy enclave in Southern California.

The Sun newspaper reported that Charles asked them to vacate the home on January 11, the day after Harry’s memoirs were published.

However, issues other than the book may have triggered the request.

Charles, who became king after the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September, has said he plans to reduce the number of working royals and cut costs for the monarchy as he seeks to modernize the 1,000-year-old institution in hopes of ensuring its survival.

With Harry and Meghan now living in California, it may have been seen as a bad look to leave a royal residence uninhabited so that they have a place to stay during their occasional visits to the UK.

Harry, meanwhile, continues to share his personal experiences and criticisms of the royal family as he promotes his book.

While participating on Saturday in a live-streamed conversation with Dr. Gabor Mate, author of “The Myth Of Normal: Trauma, Illness & Healing In A Toxic Culture,” discussed the prince’s past drug use and said he had urged other members of the family to get therapy.

He said criticism of “Spare” will not silence him because talking about these issues has helped him deal with the trauma of his life.

“The more they criticize, the more they comment, the more I feel the need to share,” Harry said. “I found a way to be able to look around, and at first ignore the criticism and abuse.”
