Prince Harry reportedly wants to meet with King Charles and Prince William before he attends the King's coronation on May 6.

The Daily Mirror reports both Meghan Markle and the Duke of Sussex have yet to receive an invite to the event, but they will be sent out "imminently".

The Mirror also claims Harry has said he won't consider going to the event until he can have a meeting with the King and his brother beforehand.

The pair is expected to be invited, despite the fallout from the release of Harry's tell-all memoir Spare in January.

"Harry has been very clear and his position hasn't wavered - he isn't going to come if he feels the atmosphere will be as toxic as it was during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee and funeral," the source said.

"He's said he wants to reconcile with his family and it's their call, but so far nothing has changed."

He and Meghan would play no part in the coronation if they attended, nor would they be allowed to appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony with the rest of the royal family.

The Daily Mail claimed Harry may potentially travel alone to the event, and be whisked in and out in a 48-hour trip, partly because his son Archie's birthday falls on the same date.

The newspaper also reported in January the Archbishop of Canterbury could be brought in to negotiate a deal between Harry and his family to attend the coronation.

The King's coronation will occur at Westminster Abbey and will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. 

Both the King and the Queen consort will be crowned at the historic occasion. 

In January, a statement from Buckingham Palace said: "Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort will arrive at Westminster Abbey in procession from Buckingham Palace, known as 'The King's Procession'.

"After the Service, Their Majesties will return to Buckingham Palace in a larger ceremonial procession, known as 'The Coronation Procession'. Their Majesties will be joined in this procession by other Members of the Royal Family.

"At Buckingham Palace, The King and The Queen Consort, accompanied by Members of the Royal Family, will appear on the balcony to conclude the day's ceremonial events."

A coronation concert will be held at Windsor Castle on the following day that will "bring global music icons and contemporary stars together".
