Among those who have questioned their attendance includes former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith, who told The Mail on Sunday: “If they dislike the Royal Family so much why would they attend the Coronation?”
Meanwhile, historian and author Lady Antonia Frase said: “I hope they don’t come because I want the King and Queen to be the centre of attention. It worries me that if they come the cameras might waste time on them. They should stay holding hands in Hollywood.”

And historian Lord Andrew Roberts claimed the couple and their two children – Archie, three, and Lilibet, one – could be a “distraction”.
He said: “Queen Caroline wasn’t invited to George IV’s Coronation, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor weren’t at George VI’s in 1937, and Elizabeth II’s German relations weren’t invited in 1953, so there’s plenty of precedent for not inviting people who would be a distraction to and detraction from the focus of the great day.”
