Meghan Markle has denied that she declined to attend King Charles’s coronation due to correspondence between them highlighting concerns about unconscious bias within the royal family. 

As reported by The Daily Telegraph, the Duchess of Sussex allegedly wrote a letter to King Charles citing the handling of bullying allegations against her and highlighting concerns about issues of bias within the royal family. 

The letter was reportedly sent after an interview with Oprah Winfrey in which Meghan alleged that a senior member of the royal family had speculated about the skin colour of their son, Archie. 

Meghan has denied claims that the concerns highlighted to Charles were not given a “satisfactory response”.

Responding to the reports, the Sussexes have issued a statement that was shared via royal commentator Omid Scobie’s Twitter account.

“The Duchess of Sussex is going about her life in the present, not thinking about correspondence from two years ago related to conversations from four years ago,” their statement read. “Any suggestion otherwise is false and frankly ridiculous.

“We encourage tabloid media and various royal commentators to stop the exhausting circus that they alone are creating.”

Since the Oprah Winfrey interview, Harry denied that they accused members of the Royal Family of being racist, with the difference between racism and unconscious bias being pointed out.

Reports on the letter come weeks before the coronation of King Charles at Westminster Abbey on 6 May.

It has been confirmed that Prince Harry will attend the coronation alongside his stepmother the Queen Consort, but Meghan and their children will stay at their residence in California. 

This comes amid claims that Harry was not invited to the Coronation of King Charles III at Westminster Abbey "in the way he wanted"

According to a friend, instead of getting it directly from his father, Harry was reportedly sent an email from the royal office. 

Despite his wish for a more personal invitation, a friend of Harry's has said he wanted to attend the Coronation as a show of support for his father, "not an institution".
