LONDON,Westminster Abbey–The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, was seated in the third row during the coronation of his father, the newly crowned King, at Westminster Abbey on Saturday. He was positioned two rows behind his elder brother, the Prince of Wales. Harry was seen wearing medals pinned to his suit jacket and engaging in conversation with Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, as he entered the abbey in light rain.
While walking down the nave of the church, Harry acknowledged guests with nods and smiles. Buckingham Palace had previously confirmed that neither Harry nor his uncle, the Duke of York, would have any formal role at the event due to their current status as non-working royals.
At the funeral of the late Queen in September of last year, Harry was seated behind Charles in the second row at Westminster Abbey. However, all eyes were on him during Saturday’s coronation as he appeared in public with his relatives for the first time since publishing his memoir, “Spare,” in which he criticized several members of the royal family, including Charles, the Queen, William, and the late Princess of Wales.
