The spokesperson addressed Markle, but didn’t offer any explanation about her decision to distance herself from the coronation.
“The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet,” they said, according to Page Six.
Harry reportedly issued a series of questions in advance of confirming his attendance at the coronation, and reportedly clarified details such as where he would sit, what level of security would be provided for him, and other critical details, according to Page Six.
