The role of Prince George, Charlotte and Louis in King Charles’ coronation has been revealed

Prince William’s children are expected to take part in the king’s coronation, according to a report.

Leaked plans show that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will play formal roles in the procession at Westminster Abbey on May 6, The Times reports.

The children will join King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla at the end of the ceremony, but Kensington Palace has yet to confirm the report.

Plans seen by the outlet show George, 9, Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 5, set to join their parents Prince William and Kate Middleton in a carriage behind a Gold State Coach carrying the King and the queen transports.

It is believed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, have not been invited to attend the event.

According to leaked plans, neither the Duke and Duchess of Sussex nor Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, will take part in the procession.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will also be part of the procession, according to the plans.

Kensington Palace declined to comment.

While Buckingham Palace has been tight-lipped about the upcoming extravaganza, it did tease that the crowning will be a scaled back affair.

The 74-year-old’s coronation will “reflect the monarch’s current role and look to the future while rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry,” Buckingham Palace said earlier.

“The king asked for more modesty,” royal author Hugo Vickers told the outlet. “This is a very stripped-down procession.”

The procession is expected to be a third the size of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953.

King Charles, who was only four when his late mother was crowned at age 25, attended only parts of the three-hour service and had no formal role on the big day.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — who recently received their invitation to the May ceremony — are still pondering whether or not to make the 5,459-mile journey.

Harry and Meghan's children, son Archie and daughter Lilibet, have not yet received invitations to their grandfather's coronation despite their royal titles.

If they do go, the exiled royals will be met with a “cold shoulder” by high-ranking members of the royal family, according to one report.

In January, Harry sensationally refused to attend the event, saying “there’s still a lot to discuss” before he can make that decision.

“A lot can happen between now and then,” he said in an interview. “But the door is always open. The ball is in their court.”
