Poll: Brits want Harry at coronation, but not Meghan

The coronation of King Charles III has stirred an ugly flurry of emotions regarding the attendance of Prince Harry and Meghan.

Brits polled about Prince Harry and Meghan's attendance

One online poll seems to suggest that Prince Harry should attend, but leave his wife at home, according to the Daily Mail.

A poll for MailOnline found that 47 percent of the public would be accepting of King Charles inviting the couple to the ceremony.

However, only 43 percent felt that Meghan should be invited.

"Meghan is upset and overwhelmed," Kinsey Schofield, host of the "To Di For Daily" podcast, told Fox News Digital.

"It’s not that Meghan feels excluded with the planning," she added. "Meghan feels like the palace is only fighting for Prince Harry to attend and they don’t care whether she shows up or not. And that does not sit well with her. Rejection is one of Meghan's greatest insecurities. She does not want to be booed or humiliated on a global scale, yet she understands that her brand stateside increases in value with her proximity to the royal family."

The ceremony for the crowning of the King and Queen Consort will be taking place on May 6th.

Prince Harry's memoir caused royal family to feel ashamed

At least part of the public ire surrounds a memoir written by Prince Harry titled, "Spare."

The book is a tell-all about what life was like for Prince Harry living in the shadow of the heir to the throne.

He was often referred to as "spare to the heir."

The book was released to the public through Penguin Random House on Jan. 10th, according to the AP News.

The book also touches on how he was impacted by the tragic death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

In a statement released to the AP by Penguin Random House, Prince Harry explained why he decided to write the book.

"I'm writing this not as the prince I was born, but as the man I have become. I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story -- the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned -- I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think," he said.

Prince Harry intends to donate the proceeds from the book to British charities.

Penguin Random House CEO Markus Dohle said in a statement that the company is, "...honored to be publishing Prince Harry's candid and emotionally powerfully story for readers everywhere."

He added that Prince Harry, "...shares a remarkably moving personal journey from trauma to healing, one that speaks to the power of love and will inspire and encourage million of people around the world."

Prince Harry and Meghan stepped down as working royals and moved to the United States about three years ago, according to The Economic Times Panache.

They claimed their reasons for doing so were the result of the verbal attacks and racist attitudes from the British media, according to Economic Times.

King Charles wants Prince Harry and Meghan at his coronation

All that being said, King Charles would like for Prince Harry and Meghan to attend his coronation, according to the New York Post.

He believes that if they stay away, their absence will cause greater turmoil in the press and in the country than if they attend.

If Harry and his wife do attend, King Charles is promising to offer them prime seating for the event or an informal promise that his second born son will be able to keep his titles.

"The family is split, and all the indications are that Harry is being advised to agree to nothing at this stage and ‘play it long’ right up to the last minute, which is making negotiations with him very difficult,” an anonymous insider told the New York Post.

"Harry’s camp made clear that the idea that he would just attend the Coronation and behave himself but then be stripped of his titles was a total non-starter," the source continued.

"While he might decide at some point to discard his titles of his own volition, he objects to the idea of being forcibly stripped of them."

Harry also "resents being lumped together with Andrew" as the two "problem princes," the insider said.

Prince Harry and Meghan have not yet made a decision as to whether or not they will attend, but they haven't been offered a formal invitation as of yet, either.
