Palace ‘think’ Meghan Instagram post may steal Coronation limelight, says expert
May 5, 2023
Buckingham Palace "seems to think" Meghan Markle may attempt to steal the Coronation limelight with an Instagram post this weekend, according to a royal expert.
It was previously confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex would not be travelling to the UK for King Charles' big day on Saturday (May 6).
Instead, she will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, the former of which will be celebrating his fourth birthday on the same day.

Prince Harry is supposed to be returning for the service at Westminster Abbey.
Despite her staying on the other side of the Atlantic, royal expert Neil Sean claims Buckingham Palace is still concerned about Meghan.
Writing for Fox News, he claimed a "new team pushing Meghan" could be plotting an Instagram post.
He said: "The feeling from the new team pushing Meghan into the limelight — once again — would be a snapshot of her husband Harry at the Coronation with her children both looking on adoringly missing their papa, while he stands alone in London, on a newly launched Instagram account."
Harry and Meghan gave up their official @sussexroyal Instagram account after stepping back as working royals in 2020.
However, Meghan since told The Cut she plans to get back on the social media site.
"I’m getting back… on Instagram," Meghan said. "Especially now, with Archetypes [her podcast] coming out."
Sean added that Buckingham Palace reckons a post may come this weekend.
He said: "To finish off the PR plug, the text, I am told, will be something along the lines of being 'so proud of her husband and her children,' ensuring the limelight — at least sprinkles — a little in her direction.
"Would she dare though? The palace seems to think so. We shall await the next rumblings."
