Prince Harry, Meghan Markle kept at arms length ahead of King Charles III's Coronation

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are known for banking on the royal family's secrets

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not be kept as close by the royal family due to their past ways of selling private details 

The royal family reportedly has no plans to keep Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in their good graces after the couple exposed the Firm's secrets in their Netflix docuseries. 

Royal commenter Louise Roberts, in a new interview on Sky News Australia, said  that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will likely attempt to use their coronation attendance to make money off of it in a bid to maintain their celebrity status in the United States.

 She added that the royal family sees them as a liability after they revealed very private conversations in their Netflix docuseries as well as Harry's memoir Spare.

"It’s a simple equation for the Sussexes: their value is their proximity to the royal family," she said. 

"It’s another dose of hypocrisy from them. They’re only relevant if they have currency with the royal family.

"They’re becoming increasingly more outrageous in their claims as well. Who knows what they’ll say after they leave the UK and go back to America after the coronation.

"The problem is anyone who could be close to them for example William and Kate, won’t tell them anything. Everyone is terrified,

"Everything is for sale, every indiscretion or a side comment could be magnified for an American audience in order to get them a profit," she warned.

No chance for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle for balcony appearance

Fellow commentator Angela Mollard also chimed in on the couple's attendance and claimed there was "no chance" they will be on the Buckingham Palace balcony on King Charles III's Coronation.

It is royal tradition to stand on the balcony at Buckingham Palace which was first initiated by Queen Victoria in 1851. 

As per tradition, senior royal family members appear on the balcony at major events like historic anniversaries, weddings and on the birthday of the Monarch.

As per Mollard, "People loathe them. There is no chance they’ll appear on the balcony. The Queen wanted a slimmed down Monarchy (and) Charles is further enforcing that."

It is pertinent to mention that the Sussexes stood on the balcony during the annual trooping the colour celebration, which was after the Sussexes quit their royal duties in January 2020.
