LONDON - Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are likely to be snubbed on Prince Charles’ coronation day.  Royal sources reveal Sunday that Prince Charles would only be joined by Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their kids on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during a ‘slimmed-down’ coronation ceremony. Charles’ younger son Harry and his wife Meghan Markle would not join the royals. A source told the Mail on Sunday that Charles does not want to be spendthrift when it comes to his coronation, and wants plans to be ‘far cheaper’ than Her Majesty’s ceremony, which cost £1.57million. A source said: ‘It will be a slimmed-down Monarchy on display throughout. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see just Charles and Camilla, Kate and William and their children on the Buckingham Palace balcony afterwards’.”

Queen allows late Princess 

Margaret’s lover to visit her grave on death anniversary

Princess Margaret’s young lover Roderic “Roddy” Llewellyn was allowed by Queen Elizabeth to visit her grave on her twentieth death anniversary on Wednesday. Richard Eden of The Daily Mail reported that Llewellyn, 74, who now lives in France, visited London for the funeral of his friend John Rendall, the former owner of Christian the Lion, and then paid his respects at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, Margaret’s final resting place. Princess Margaret’s ashes are interred at the Memorial Chapel within the St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle next to her parents, King George VI and the Queen Mother. It is also expected to be the final resting place of Prince Philip and the Queen herself someday.

Talking about his visit, Llewellyn was quoted as saying, “After two years of having absolutely nothing in my diary, I had two crucial dates to go to St. George’s and to be at John’s funeral.”

Margaret and Llewellyn, a former royal gardener and aspiring pop star, started their romance during her marriage to photographer Antony Amstrong-Jones, who was entangled in an affair himself at the time. Their eight-year-long affair was one of the most talked about royal affairs at the time, and was blown with a picture of the two enjoying a moment at the Princess’ Mustique villa on the cover of the News of the World, following which the royal family was forced to issue a statement announcing the end of Margaret’s marriage to Snowdon.
