Prince Harry refuses to commit to King Charles’ coronation: ‘The ball is in their court’

The Duke of Sussex has refused to commit to attending King Charles’s coronation in a new trailer for his forthcoming ITV interview.

In the clip, released on Thursday (5 January), interviewer Tom Bradby asks Harry whether he would travel to London for the ceremony in May if he’s invited.

Harry replies: “There’s a lot that can happen between now and then. But, the door is always open. The ball is in their court.

“There’s a lot to be discussed and I really hope that they’re willing to sit down and talk about it,” he continued.

Harry also says that those accusing him of invading his family’s privacy in releasing his memoir “don’t understand or don’t want to believe” the press were being briefed by them.

The comments are included in a second trailer for his Harry’s ITV interview ahead of the release of his “personal and emotional” memoir Spare next week.

In it, Bradby suggests some people would accuse Harry of “invading the privacy of your nearest and dearest” after fighting back “against invasions of your privacy all your life.

To this, Harry responds: “That would be the accusation from people that don’t understand or don’t want to believe that my family have been briefing the press.”

Spare is published by Penguin Random House and will be released on 10 January.

Viewers in the UK can watch Harry: The Interview on ITV1 and ITVX at 9pm on 8 January,
