Harry attends the coronation but does not appear on the balcony.
(Reuters) – LONDON, May 6 (Reuters) – Prince Harry, King Charles III’s younger son, attended his father’s coronation in Westminster Abbey on Saturday, however he sat in the third row and did not emerge on the Buckingham Palace balcony at the culmination of the festivities.
Until early April, it was unclear whether Harry, who now resides in California, would attend the historic event following a public spat with his family.
The 38-year-old army veteran from Afghanistan arrived at the abbey happy and dressed in a morning suit, his medals pinned to his chest. His wife Meghan and their two small children remained in America.
He had no formal involvement in the service and stood by as his elder brother William, the successor to the throne, bowed before his father to vow his fealty as his “liege man of life and limb,” a moment that drew applause from the throng outside.
He was then absent from the palace balcony when Charles and Camilla waved to the crowds alongside William and his family, two of Charles’ siblings, and the service page boys.
