Will Harry and Meghan attend King Charles’s coronation?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have christened their daughter Lilibet in a small ceremony in Montecito, California, it has been reported.
According to People, a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed the occasion and said that “Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday 3 March by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor.”
A source claimed that King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla, as well as the Prince and Princess of Wales, were invited for the ceremony but were not in attendance.
It comes after the King is understood to have offered the keys to Frogmore Cottage to Andrew, who is said to be “resisting” any attempt to move him out of his current home, the Royal Lodge.
The King requested that Harry and Meghan vacate Frogmore Cottage, which they previously used as their UK residence. He may reportedly offer them a suite of rooms in Buckingham Palace that previously belonged to Andrew.
Royal commentator Jennie Bond claimed that Prince William and Kate Middleton would prefer to have the disgraced Andrew as their neighbour in Windsor over the Sussexes.
“They [Prince and Princess of Wales] will be absolutely supportive of Charles’ decision. They probably don’t want Harry and Meghan as their near neighbours,” Bond told OK! Magazine. “I think they’d probably have Andrew,” she added.
Bond’s words follow reports that the King has officially invited the Sussexes to his and the Queen Consort’s coronation this spring.
A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan told The Times that they have received “email correspondence” about the coronation, but no decision has been disclosed about whether they will accept the invitation or not.

William and Kate would prefer Andrew as neighbour over Harry and Meghan, claims royal commentator
A royal commentator has said that the Prince and Princess of Wales would rather have Prince Andrew as their neighbour over Prince Harry and Meghan.
It comes after reports last week revealed King Charles III evicted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from their UK residence, Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, and reportedly offered the keys to his disgraced brother Prince Andrew.

“They [Prince and Princess of Wales] will be absolutely supportive of Charles’ decision. They probably don’t want Harry and Meghan as their near neighbours,” Bond told OK! Magazine.

King Charles ordered Sussexes’ eviction to save monarchy, Piers Morgan says
Speaking on his TalkTV show Piers Uncensored, Morgan said: “Moving to save the monarchy and its reputation from these two flamethrowers, who keep wanting to trash it and burn it to the ground.”
When accused by co-host Tessa Dunlop of “shouting” Harry and Meghan “down”, Morgan said he thinks they are a “malevolent duo intent on fleecing their royal titles for hundreds of millions of dollars” adding that they are causing “damage to their family and the institution”.
Morgan said the King and Prince William are “sick and tired” of being “trashed” by the couple, alluding to Harry’s claims made in his tell-all memoir Spare and his Netflix documentary with his wife, Harry & Meghan.
Discussing whether they should attend the coronation, Morgan said “good riddance” to the pair and expressed that he does not want them to attend the ceremony.
“If I was Charles and Camilla…I wouldn’t trust the pair of them as far as I could throw them,” he said.

Camilla ‘to be called Queen instead of Queen Consort after coronation’
As speculation continues over whether or not the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the coronation this spring, it has been reported that the Queen Consort will be known as the Queen instead following the ceremony.
Before her death last September, the late Queen Elizabeth II announced that it was her “sincere wish” that Camilla will be known as Queen Consort “as she continues her own loyal service”.
But a report quoting “insiders” at Buckingham Palace has suggested that the royal may shed the “cumbersome” title of Queen Consort for the “simpler” title of Queen.
