Sunrise's Nat Barr takes brutal dig at Harry and Meghan ahead of coronation

The TV presenter didn't hold back with her thoughts on the couple.

Sunrise host Natalie Barr took a savage swipe at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Monday morning while discussing the likelihood they will attend King Charles’ upcoming coronation.

The TV presenter was speaking about the event with royal commentator Emily Andrews, who believes the couple will make an appearance, when she took a dig at them.

“We still don’t know whether him and Meghan are coming,” Emily said. “My money, Nat, is that they will come and they’ll bring the kids with them.”

While she was cautious in how she worded her response, Nat wasn’t afraid to let her feelings about Harry and Meghan show when she replied.

“Okay... because that will create more for them to talk about, and possibly whinge about,” she remarked.


While it’s been confirmed that both Harry and Meghan have been invited to the ceremony on May 6, there has been no word on whether they will attend.

The Duke of Sussex is reportedly requesting a private apology from his father and brother Prince William before he confirms his attendance at the coronation.

Harry 'poses a threat' to Charles' coronation

Royal expert Nigel Cawthorne believes it's unlikely Charles will give Harry what he wants and apologise ahead of the event.

He told Express: “Meghan has, thankfully, kept her mouth shut lately. It's Harry wanting an apology that poses more of a threat to the coronation.

“But Charles knows he can't go around apologising to people - that's ridiculous. It's far beneath the King to do that.”


Harry has previously refused to commit to attending the coronation unless Charles and William “sit down and talk about” the allegations he brought against the family in his record-breaking memoir Spare.

If Harry and Meghan do attend the coronation, they will do so as 'normal' members of the family and will not have a special role. They will also likely not be allowed to appear on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.

It's also possible that Harry will attend solo while Meghan stays in the US to be with their two young children and celebrate their son Archie’s fourth birthday, which is on the same day as the coronation.
