There was never a time when the ties between the Sussex royals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the House of Windsor lay strained. Following the infamous Megxit, there have been a handful of such instances where the family put up a united front, just for the sake of. Aggravating the wounds was the couple’s multi-million dollar deals with media giants like Netflix, Penguin Publishing House, and Spotify. Although some quick victories catapulted into severe crashes, the top deals resulted in quite a few bombshells for the royal family. Following it, it was all about just rendering off the duties for the public. However, at this point, even that seems like a distant dream. 

The last time one of the Sussexes appeared at the royal premises was the royal spectacle at Westminster Abbey. While everyone held their special ranks in coronation, King Charles’ youngest just showcased his presence at the occasion and flew away in less than two hours.

Following it, the Duke had been to the kingdom a couple of times. But none resulted in a meet-up with his estranged family members. However, this time, the Duke made clear the broken ties as he snubbed an insignificant yet royal occasion. As was evident from the pictures shared by the royal family for King Charles’ Scottish Coronation, all senior members went on a display of grandeur and flamboyance at the event. But there was no sign of the California royals anywhere in the pictures. 

The Prince of Wales, Prince William the rightful heir to the throne, and Princess Kate Middleton accompanied Their Majesties. Unlike the May spectacle, Middleton chose a basic formal look while the other three were in royal robes for the occasion.
