According to a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, «I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the Coronation. An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time» (via Express). Whether or not Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, 3-year-old Archie, and 1-year-old Lilibet will attend depends on how negotiations shake out. A source explained, «The Palace are trying to wrap up negotiations as quickly as possible, because they can’t go right up to the wire. It could lead to chaos. It could very well be that it ends in stalemate, and they won’t attend. But the Palace is doing everything in its power to not let that happen.»
A source revealed to the Daily Mail, «Two versions of the plans [for the day] are being drawn up. One includes Harry and Meghan, and one doesn’t. Timings are all approximate at this stage, but they are working towards a timetable now.» At first, Archie and Lilibet allegedly weren’t invited at all. Now the plans will include them if their parents attend. This could even involve a happy birthday shoutout to Archie who turns 4 on coronation day. Whether or not the family of four will attend is up in the air, but as the clock ticks, a decision will be made one way or another.
