Harry and Meghan spark fears they could ‘upstage’ Coronation with special announcement

Prince Harry andMeghan Markle have sparked fears they could upstageKing Charles’ Coronation by going big onArchie’s birthday celebrations.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to still be considering whether or not to attend the historic ceremony in ten weeks time.

Their son Archie turns four on the same day as the Coronation – but it has been said the couple are still determined to mark his birthday even if they return to Britain.

If they do fly back to the UK in early May, insiders say they still intend to throw a party for Archie – as they would have done in California.

But, according toExpress.co.uk, they have been told they risk overshadowing the King’s big day by going big on the celebrations – including any birthday announcement in the hours before the Coronation.

Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, celebrated daughter Lilibet's birthday during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee last summer and went on to release a portrait of her.

Royal columnist Lee Cohen said the Coronation weekend had to be about one thing only.

He added: "It's terribly petty, but the Sussexes, who no longer have their royal platform, seem to relish any opportunity to attempt to upstage a royal occasion.

"It's not as if the Royal Family seek occasions to upstage the antics of the Sussexes, quite the opposite."

Royal correspondent Natalie Oliveri said if the Sussexes were to attend, they should take no risks and keep a low profile.

She added: "They're being encouraged to not pull any stunts during the Coronation and really stick to the plan.

"I think their appearance at the Coronation will be very similar to that of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee last year.

"We might see them at one or two events but largely they will be kept in the shadows because they don't want to take away from the historical event.

"It's also Archie's birthday too so they might host a little party at Frogmore Cottage like they did with Lilibet."

It comes as Harry and Meghan are still said to be’undecided’ on whether to attend King Charles' Coronation.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that theDuke and Duchess of Sussex have been invited to the Coronation in May and that the rest ofthe royal family are "fully expecting" the two to make an appearance at the event, despite the ongoing feud between Harry and his relatives.

But the Sussexes are having a difficult time deciding whether or not they should go though, according to reports. It was said this was because Harry wants a summit with his father King Charles and brother Prince William ahead of flying to the UK from his family home in California.

Meanwhile, it has also been reported that the King and Prince Williamhave "no intention" of apologising to Harry and his wife Meghan ahead of the Coronation.
