Meghan Markle’s biographer has given the world the low down as to why the Duchess of Sussex won’t be attending King Charles’ coronation.
Omid Scobie, co-author of Meghan's book Finding Freedom, has explained why she won’t be doing the same as her husband Prince Harry – and it all comes down to the kids.
The Duke, Buckingham Palace has announced, will be in attendance at Westminster Abbey for the long-awaited ceremony on May 6.

However, Archie and Lilibet will remain in the US with their mother.
The King’s coronation is set to clash with the fourth birthday of little Prince Archie and Scobie has claimed this is a big factor in the Sussexs' decision-making process.
He said: "I understand that Archie's fourth birthday (also on May 6) played a factor in the couple's decision.
"Expect it to be a fairly quick trip to the UK for Prince Harry, who will only be attending the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey."
Speculation over whether the couple would attend the coronation ceremony has been rife since the release of Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, which shed huge amounts of light on previously private matters.
People were unsure about whether King Charles would even extend an invite to his youngest son, however a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed an invite had been received over email on March 4.

From here the speculation ramped up once again, as questions over whether the California-based royals would accept the invite.
Many felt that they may turn down the invitation while others thought all of the Windsor-Markle clan would be in attendance.
Now it seems that a hybrid between the two is the preferred option – even though the RSVP date for attendance was April 3.
A Palace spokesperson said: "Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that the Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6.
"The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet."
