The coronation is an ‘impossible situation’ for King Charles because he is stuck between his two sons, says royal expert in our talk show Palace Confidential
The king finds himself in an ‘impossible situation’ regarding the coronation as he is caught between his two sons in a vicious family quarrel.
That is the view of Mail on Sunday editor-in-chief Charlotte Griffiths, who says he understands why he would turn to a figure like the Archbishop of Canterbury for help.
“It’s an impossible situation, you understand why they want a third party,” she says to the program.
“You get the impression that he’s probably been trying to fix this for several years, but I think he’s probably had the good graces to say ‘actually, look, I can’t do this, so I’ll have to get someone else to do this. Search.” help out…”
“There’s also the added complication of Charles worrying about William, because it sounds like William doesn’t really want Harry there, so he has to keep both parties happy, which is impossible.”

Rebecca English, editor-in-chief of The Daily Mail, believes that repairing the relationship is beyond the capabilities of the church’s leader.
“I think it takes more than a man of God, I have to say, I really do, even someone as anointed as he is,” she tells the show.
“I also think it’s a family issue, because at the end of the day, Harry won’t be playing an official role, as we understand, at the coronation, so he’ll be there as his father’s guest.”
