London/IBNS: Princes Harry and Andrew attended the coronation of King Charles III Saturday and were relegated to the third row of the royal family seating.

They did not join the family later on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

Charles’s younger son Harry and his American wife Meghan quit royal duties in 2020 and have since then unleashed a string of attacks on the monarchy in various interviews.

Andrew, the king’s eldest brother, has been frozen out over his past association with the disgraced late US financier Jeffrey Epstein and a related sexual abuse allegation which was settled out of court.

But both Harry, 38, the Duke of Sussex, and 63-year-old Andrew, the Duke of York, were in the royal ranks for the coronation at London’s Westminster Abbey, without a formal role.

Britain’s King Charles III and his wife Camilla have been crowned King and Queen in a grand ceremony at  Westminster Abbey in central London on Saturday.
