Prince Harry in lose-lose trap ‘that’s all his own fault’, warns royal expert

Prince Harry is in a lose-lose situation "that he has put himself in", according to a royal expert.

Speculation has been rife as to whether the Duke of Sussex will attend King Charles' coronation on May 6.

It is understood both he and Meghan Markle have been invited to the historic ceremony but are still considering whether they will attend.

The Mirror previously reported that Harry wants a "summit" with his father and brother before he decides, unhappy with how "toxic" the atmosphere was when he returned to the UK during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and funeral.

And this week it appeared the relationship between Charles and Harry was strained further when Buckingham Palace confirmed the Sussexes have been asked to "vacate their residence" at Frogmore Cottage.

Omid Scobie, a royal author close to the couple, said they were left "stunned" by the move.

Royal expert Kinsey Schofield, host of the To Di For Daily podcast, reckons Harry will be slammed regardless of whether he attends the ceremony or not.

However – she says that is his own fault.

She told the Daily Star: "If Harry shows up, he will be criticised. If Harry does not show up, he will be criticised.

"The moment his plane lands… we will make the obvious observation that he needs the Royal Family to maintain his lifestyle and brand in America.

"The minute we notice his absence… we'll accuse him of being a coward who couldn't face the family that he has spent years trying to tarnish.

"He's in a tough position but ultimately a position that he has put himself in."

Kinsey previously told the Daily Star she thinks Harry will fly back for the coronation "because he knows his connection to the Royal Family is the only reason some people answer his telephone calls and emails".

However, Kinsey doesn't think Harry ought to expect Charles to roll out the red carpet for him.

"Harry should be welcome to attend and sit in the back if that is what King Charles wants," she said.
