Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has recently decided to skip the coronation ceremony. This decision has reportedly brought quiet relief to the British royal family, who are eager to avoid any potential controversy surrounding her presence. The Duchess, an American actress turned British royalty, has had a tumultuous relationship with the royal family since her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018. The couple’s departure from their roles as senior royals in 2020 further fueled tensions between them and the rest of the royal family.
