The date of the Coronation, May 6, also falls on their son Archie’s fourth birthday, suggesting they may bring their young family with them to the UK, although the children are thought to be too young to go to Westminster Abbey.
It has been reported that Harry and Meghan would like Prince Archie’s birthday to be commemorated in some way, with others saying they would like to join the rest of the family on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the ceremony.
Harry and Meghan did not appear on the balcony for the Platinum Jubilee last June, which is a duty normally reserved for working members of the Firm.
A source told OK! earlier this month that discussions are currently ongoing over whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should appear on the balcony, along with their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
They said the question was a “sticking point” but added: “Harry and Meghan are keen that they too should be a part of that special family moment.”
They also claimed the couple had requested to stay at Frogmore Cottage while they are in the UK, despite being asked to vacate the property by King Charles III back in January.
It is believed they want their children to spend more time with their royal cousins of a similar age, such as Princess Eugenie’s son August.
The family also hope to still celebrate Archie’s birthday even if they are in attendance at Westminster Abbey for the Coronation.
The source said: “The Sussexes have asked for some kind of celebration or acknowledgement to be factored into the day’s plans to ensure that his fourth birthday won’t get lost during the momentous day.”
During the Trooping of the Colour for last year’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Harry and Meghan agreed not to appear on the balcony, with royal author Omid Scobie saying it was a mutual decision.
He wrote in a column for Yahoo! News that “both sides” had thought it was best they were not there, although they were still “keen” to celebrate the occasion.
A royal insider claimed earlier this year it was “unlikely” the Sussexes would be invited onto the balcony for the Coronation, according to the Mail on Sunday.
If Prince Harry does attend, it is not thought he will play an official role in proceedings, unlike his brother the Prince of Wales who will be expected to “pay homage” to his father.
While this used to be carried out by all royal Dukes, a title which Harry still retains, King Charles has now scrapped the tradition and instead only Prince William will do so.
The process will involve William placing his hands between the King’s and swearing allegiance, touching the crown and kissing the King’s right hand.
