Coronation Will Miss Meghan Markle’s Brand of ‘Hollywood Glamour’


Meghan Markle’s absence from King Charles III’s coronation next month is a “disappointment on the fashion front,” particularly as a bold style statement could have garnered her some “positive PR,” according to a top fashion expert.

After months of speculation over whether Meghan and Prince Harry would make the journey to Britain with their two children for King Charles’ crowning ceremony, Buckingham Palace announced in a statement on April 12 that “The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6th May. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”
Meghan’s absence comes after a period of public criticism following the release of the Sussexes’ high-profile media projects, including the couple’s six-part Netflix docuseries detailing their 2020 acrimonious split from the monarchy and Harry’s bombshell memoir, Spare.
The last time the duchess attended a large-scale royal event was the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022. Before that, she appeared at the Platinum Jubilee in June of that same year.
Meghan’s attendance at public events is met with increased fascination with what she chooses to wear. Therefore, her skipping of the coronation—one of the biggest fashion events of the decade—will be unwelcome news to royal style watchers.
