Prince Harry's relationship with his stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, could stop him from attending Prince Charles' future coronation, according to new claims.

The Duke of Sussex is reportedly 'refusing' to attend the coronation if Camilla is made Queen Consort.

The Queen has previously said it is her "sincere wish" that Camilla will be known as Queen Consort when Charles takes the throne.

Private Eye reports Harry will snub the service if it should take place at Westminster Abbey as it would mean Camilla will be crowned "a few feet" from where Princess Diana's coffin lay in 1997.

"Harry has no intention of attending his father's coronation if Camilla is to be anointed and crowned just a few feet from where his mother's coffin lay in Westminster Abbey," a source reveals.

"[The Queen] may have given her blessing to Camilla becoming Queen consort, but Harry refuses to bend."

Diana's coffin was taken from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey after her death on August 31 and it remained there until her funeral on September 6.

It was then taken to the Spencer family home at Althorp, Northamptonshire, to rest on an island on an ornamental lake.

No doubt, the image of his mother's coffin in Westminster Abbey has remained in Harry's mind ever since.

It's believed both Harry and his brother Prince William have a complicated relationship with Camilla, however, Harry has yet to make any comments about the news of the Queen's decision that Camilla's to become Queen Consort.

William is believed to be "supportive" and "respectful" of Her Majesty's decision.

Instead of commenting on the news, Harry paid tribute to his mother instead.

Speaking of how Diana changed the global perception of HIV and Aids, Harry said, "I could never fill her shoes," with the Daily Mail suggesting that he may as well have said, "And nor could anyone else."

It comes amid fears Harry's upcoming memoir could see him making a "spiteful attack" on Camilla for "stealing" his father from Diana.
