King Charles could invite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to his coronation in a bid to "keep the Sussexes sweet" and avoid more tell-all interviews, a royal expert revealed.
Writing for news.com.au, journalist Daniela Elser said the monarch was "pursuing a containment strategy" in a bid to stop the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from blasting the Royal Family on TV following a spate of tell-all interviews promoting Harry's memoir Spare.
"His Majesty is of the view that if the Sussexes stayed away from London it could end up being a 'greater distraction' than having the duo in the Royal Family’s midst, which is why Charles is prepared to make concessions to persuade them to attend," Elser wrote, adding the King will reportedly allow Harry to keep his royal titles.

"Charles wants Harry and Meghan inside Westminster Abbey for his big day and is willing to give the Sussexes decent seats and not stick them behind a convenient pillar or random German cousin who is unusually tall, all in the name of a PR-crisis-free coronation.
"For Charles, this looks like he is pursuing a containment strategy, some way of minimising the chances of the Sussexess staging some sort of TV tantrum right at exactly the moment Justin is anointing him with oil or he is reciting the coronation oath."
But, she added, this strategy could backfire as Harry and Meghan's mere presence could prove a distraction.
"In the last 12 months we have had two major royal events – the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee four-day celebration and then her funeral in September – both of which Harry and Meghan not only attended but were on their best behaviour," she said.

"And yet, looking back at both of these historic outings and Harry and Meghan’s very presence hovered, blimp-like, over proceedings. Their very presence back behind Palace gates and The Firm’s handling of their return were huge stories."
While it is understood the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not officially been invited to the coronation yet, reports suggest they will be welcome to celebrate the King's official rise to the throne after he came to power in September.
A source told The Daily Telegraph: "All members of the family will be welcome," and while Buckingham Palace is maintaining its silence over recent developments regarding the Sussexes, a source said of the king: "He loves both his sons."
Harry hasn't shieded away from dishing the dirt on the royals in recent weeks, giving a series of tell-all interviews with the likes of ITV and Good Morning America when his memoir Spare was released earlier this month.
He accused his relatives of lying to protect one another at the expense of the Sussexes and even claimed he and his brother got into a physical fight over Meghan.
Harry wrote: "It all happened so fast. So very fast.
"He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace and he knocked me to the floor.
"I landed on the dog’s bowl which cracked under my back. The pieces cutting into me.
"I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out."
