Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s extended invitation to next year’s coronation is still unknown, but experts have suggested the olive branch may be withheld due to the upcoming publication of Harry’s memoirs. Speaking on the latest episode of Royally Us, host Christine Ross said the couple could wait for an invitation and hopes the months between the publication of the memoir and the coronation can smooth over any potential tensions.
Christine’s co-host Christina Garibaldi said a coronation invitation really “depends on what’s in this book” and “in this documentary” and “how badly the bridges could be burned”.
She added: “I think it all depends on what we’re going to see in the next few months”.
Ms Ross said: “I totally agree, you know there have been a lot of rumors that last minute edits [are] be finished.
“I think the documentary and the book come out within each other.

Ms Garibaldi agreed, saying: “Well, we’ll see.”
