"The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty's office regarding the coronation," a spokesperson for the royal couple announced on Sunday, March 5. "An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time."
In February, a source revealed Prince Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, had yet to be invited to the May 6 celebration after the Sussexes famously sparked even more tension with the royal family following the release of Harry's shocking memoir.
The book included scathing comments about the high-profile family and described a multitude of traumas Harry experienced throughout his life in the limelight. In a recent interview, the father-of-two discussed the speculation surrounding the pending invitation.
"There's a lot that can happen between now and then. But, you know, the door is always open. The ball is in their court. There's a lot to be discussed, and I really hope that they are willing to sit down and talk about it," he explained at the time.
An inside source also noted that Charles hoped things would “calm down” between them before his big day.
"It is such a momentous occasion for Charles, and he would want his son to be at the coronation to witness it. He would like to have Harry back in the family," the source added. "If they don't sort it out, it will always be part of the King's reign and how he has left his family disjointed. He has had a reputation as a distant parent, and it would be awful for him for that to continue."
Despite Harry and Charles' hopes for patching things up, some have speculated the bombshell memoir may have something to do with Harry and Meghan being asked to leave their U.K. home.
