Queen Camilla has performed a special gesture that makes it hard for Buckingham Palace to not invite Harry and Meghan from to the King’s coronation, a royal expert has claimed.
Author Gareth Russell appeared on the podcastRoyally Usto discuss Camilla’s decision to include her granddaughters in events on the big day.
He claims this opens the door for other non-working royals – such as Harry and Meghan – to play a part, and makes it hard for the Palace to say differently.

Gareth said: “I can tell you a spanner has definitely been thrown in the works by a quite touching and popular decision that Queen Camilla has made.
"Unlike previous Queen Consorts who were crowned, the canopy over them at the moment of consecration was held by four duchesses.
"She has said she doesn't want four duchesses, she wants her four grandchildren to carry the canopy over her, which is a lovely gesture.
"She's very close to her grandchildren but what that does is it upsets the argument that, since Harry is not a working royal, there's no place for him in the ceremony."

Camilla’s five grandchildren are split across her son and daughter, with the Queen understood to be very close with all of them.
Laura has Eliza, 15, and twins Gus and Louis, 14.
Meanwhile, Thomas has 16-year-old Lola – who she plays Wordle with every day – and Freddy, 12.
Russell reckons their inclusion makes things hard for the Duke and Duchess and Sussex to be snubbed.
He continued: “Obviously, Queen Camilla's grandchildren are not only not working royals, they've never been working royals.
"So if a space can be found for them the Palace is going to be very hard-pressed to explain why no role could be found for Prince Harry."
