Members of Britain’s political and military establishment lined up on Sunday to tell Harry and Meghan not to show their tear-stained faces at the coronation of King Charles III next year.
The warnings come following the couple’s self-absorbed Netflix series last week, which slammed the Royal Family, the media, politicians and commentators.
As Breitbart News reported, the reception to the production was so negative that an MP from Britain’s ruling Conservative Party is considering pushing forward a bill that will allow parliament to strip Prince Harry and his wife Meghan. , Duchess of Sussex, of their titles. .

Former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith said The Sunday Mail their presence would be the height of hypocrisy: “If they don’t like the royal family so much, why would they attend the coronation?”
Fellow Tory veteran David Mellor followed, telling the outlet that the couple have sought to monetize their position and that attending such a global event would only alienate them further from the British public:
They shouldn’t come to the coronation. They absolutely must not come.
They make money by selling their family downline. I think it should be clear that the Brits don’t want them there.
He added that people “would have every right to boo if the couple showed up”, before offering, “They’re sad and there’s no hope for them in their current journey.”
Historian and author Lady Antonia Fraser added her voice to the clamor: “I hope they don’t come because I want the King and Queen to be the center of attention. It worries me that if they come, the cameras might lose time with them. They should stay hand in hand in Hollywood.
The British media have been equally ruthless.

Meanwhile, now-retired Rear Admiral Chris Parry said the Duke and Duchess “have lost their rights to be part of the Royal Family. Frankly, they have proven to be unreliable in terms of recording and reporting.
“The coronation is another red carpet event for them – and they are likely to walk and tell. They are not compatible with the dignity and importance of the occasion.
