Harry and Meghan will attend the ceremony as spectators
If Harry and Meghan decide to attend the coronation, they will be spectators, not official members of the ceremony. Buckingham Palace sources have confirmed that the couple will have no official role in the day’s events and will not be invited to the infamous Buckingham Palace balcony.
The rules applied to the jubilee celebrations of the late Queen Elizabeth also apply to the possible participation of the Sussexes in the ceremony. At that time, only the primary workers of the British royal family appeared on the balcony.

There is a ballot for coronation spots
The coronation of King Charles will be held on May 6, shortly before the official state opening of parliament. The date now prompted government officials and courtiers to meet deadlines ahead of the holiday.
Only 2,000 seats are said to be available for the ceremony, compared to the 8,000 seats used for the late Queen’s coronation. To win the seat, members of the House of Lords and the British Parliament take part in a vote.
May 6 happens to be the fourth birthday of Harry and Meghan’s first child, Archie. The royal family’s advisers are considering this, as Harry could attend the ceremony alone or take a shuttle between events.
