Prince Harry and King Charles ‘had heart to heart’ before Coronation decision

Before he accepted the invitation to King Charles' Coronation, Prince Harry had a 'heart to heart' with his father, according to reports.

Harry, 38, and Charles, 74, reportedly ended months of no contact to discuss the Coronation, with sources claiming there is a “willingness and wanting to mend on both sides”.

There is also believed to have been correspondence between Buckingham Palace and the Duke of Sussex before he confirmed his attendance at the Coronation.

No significant talks took place however, with discussions focusing on security arrangements despite claims Harry delayed accepting the invite due to concerns regarding seating plans.

Insiders have claimed Harry decided to attend Charles' crowning in a bid to show “support for his father” and to mark the “importance and significance” for the country, according to The Sun.

Harry is understood to have still not spoken to his older brother Prince William, 40, despite finally talking to his father.

OK! has contacted Harry's representative and Buckingham Palace for comment.

The Palace confirmed Harry will attend Charles' Coronation earlier this week, but his wife Meghan Markle, 41, will remain in California with the couple's two children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.

The palace's statement read: "Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm 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."

Insiders told The Sun that King Charles is "happy" with Harry's decision to attend and "understanding" of Meghan staying behind in California with Archie and Lilibet.

However, the monarch is also said to be "very disappointed" that he won't be seeing his daughter-in-law or his grandchildren.

Meghan is reportedly supportive of Harry's decision and is only not attending as Charles' crowning falls on the same day as Archie's fourth birthday.

Harry will jet to the UK alone in May to watch his father and step-mum Camilla, Queen Consort, 75, be crowned in London in front of millions.

The Duke will not have any formal role at the ceremony and is not expected to be in the Royal processions between Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.

His UK trip will reportedly be very short too, as he is not scheduled to attend any other celebrations during the three-day bank holiday weekend.
