Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might be making their way across the pond to attend the royal coronation of King Charles III. According to a statement from a spokesperson of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the couple has officially received an invitation for the ceremony via email. Their representative shared, "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."

Amidst family tensions, it was speculated whether or not the royal couple would even be invited to the royal coronation. When drama arose from the release of Prince Harry's memoir Spare, the pair were asked to vacate their residence at Frogmore Cottage, the home gifted to the couple by Queen Elizabeth II. King Charles offered the property as a gift to his brother Prince Andrew. Despite this, the major event of a coronation has prompted the desire for a family reunion.

A source told ET in February how King Charles wishes to have both his sons in attendance for the ceremony. "Of course, Charles wants his son at the coronation," the source said. "It is a pivotal moment in his life. He loves both his sons and wants Prince Harry there. King Charles wants to mend the relationship within the family. They will be invited. It would look terrible if they were not."

Around the time of this news, Prince Harry appeared at a virtual book event with Dr. Gabor Maté, an expert specializing in trauma, addiction, stress, and childhood development, to chat about his memoir. In the conversation, the Duke of Sussex discussed how Meghan "saved" him. People reported that Harry said, "My wife saved me. I was stuck in this world, and she was from a different world and helped draw me out of that. But none of the elements of my life now would have been possible without me seeing it for myself." He continued, "My partner is an exceptional human being and I'm eternally grateful for the wisdom and the space that she has been able to give me."

Harry also discussed in the conversation how his strained relationship with his family began at an earlier age and how he related to Princess Diana in this respect. "Certainly throughout my life, throughout my younger years, I always felt slightly different to the rest of my family," he said. "I felt strange being in this container, and I know that my mum felt the same. It makes sense to me—it didn't make sense at the time—I felt as though my body was in there, but my head was out, but sometimes it was vice-versa."

Prince Harry shared, "The times that I ventured towards being myself, being my authentic true self, whether it was through media or family or whatever it was, it was almost like, 'Don't be yourself, come back to what you're expected to be,' if that makes sense."
