According to the plans, the king’s embarrassed brother, the Duke of York, will not have a place in the royal procession, nor will his daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie take part. At an event estimated to be about a third the size of HM The Queen’s in 1953, there appears to be room for ‘working-only royals’.

These include the King’s sister the Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the newly titled Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, and a few other adult royal cousins.

Among those in attendance is the youngest child of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Louis, who stole the show at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last June.

At the age of four, he was deemed too young two months later to participate in her funeral procession, with his older siblings George and Charlotte becoming the youngest royals ever to participate in such an event.

Harry and Meghan’s children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, have not yet been invited to the coronation, according to the Times.
