It will be the first time Harry will come face-to-face with Charles and brother William since the release of his bombshell memoir “Spare” back in January.

The wayward royal — who now resides in Montecito with Meghan and their two children — recently returned to the UK for a court case, but reportedly did not see his father or brother.

In his scathing tome, Harry took potshots at William’s thinning hair and accused his older brother of physically attacking him during an argument.

He further hit out at step-mother, Queen Consort Camilla, accusing her of cozying up to journalists and leaking negative stories about him to the press.

The book sparked months of speculation as to how Harry could attend Charles’ coronation after publicly trashing his family in print.

The decision for Harry to attend was reportedly made after Harry sent over a laundry list of questions to Buckingham Palace, including where he would sit and what security would be provided. It’s currently unclear what agreements were made between the two parties.

Meanwhile, Harry’s son Archie is set to celebrate his fourth birthday on May 6, with Markle choosing to stay in Montecito to mark that occasion, according to the People report.

It’s not known whether Markle will hold her own party for Archie while the coronation unfolds in London.
