There’s ‘no way’ Prince Harry will appear on the balcony during King Charles’ coronation

Prince Harry is not expected to appear on the coveted balcony of Buckingham Palace during King Charles III’s coronation on Saturday.

One highly placed source tells Page Six there is “no way” that the renegade royal will be invited to join senior royals on the balcony.

However, another royal source says, “The palace hasn’t said who will be going on the balcony yet.

“The one thing that is clear is that Charles loves his son, the emotions of the day may just overtake everything.”

The Duke of Sussex — who quit his royal duties with his wife Meghan Markle in 2020 — landed early in London Friday morning on a commercial American Airlines flight, and headed to his UK home, Frogmore House.

It’s believed that he’s not seen his father since arriving in the UK.

Charles will undoubtedly be joined by Prince William, his wife, Princess Kate, and their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis on the balcony. Princess Anne, Prince Edward, his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, and their children are also set to stand with the King and Queen.

Harry is set to wear a morning suit for his trip to Westminster Abbey Saturday morning to watch his father crowned King and his stepmother Camilla crowned Queen, while his brother Prince William is expected to wear his military uniform.

But after months of antagonizing the royal family with his Netflix show and bombshell memoir, “Spare,” it will be an awkward family reunion — and it’s not yet known where he will be seated for the two-hour coronation service.

The Daily Mail even reported that Harry won’t be invited to join in the official family photographs, or the family lunch after the coronation ceremony.

As Page Six revealed, Harry is set to jet back to the US after the service to make it back in time for his son, Prince Archie’s fourth birthday, which is on the same day as the ceremony.

The Duke of Sussex traveled back home to the UK without wife Meghan Markle, who remains in California with their children.

Markle — who also shares 1-year-old Princess Lilibet with Harry — is throwing a birthday party at home in Montecito, Calif., with her mother, Doria Ragland and other friends, as we told.

Due to the birthday celebration, Markle announced last month that she would not be attending the celebratory weekend — despite being invited.

“There was no way that Meghan was going to miss her son’s birthday,” a source told us at the time, noting that things are still “awkward” between the Sussexes and the royal family.
