March 18, 2023 | 1:23 pm

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly demanding a place on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during King Charles’s coronation — and an acknowledgment during the celebration for their two young children, according to a report.

The request, and the couple’s apparent withholding of their wishes, could throw the historic event into “chaos”, royal insiders fear.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who recently received their invitations to the May 6 ceremony – are still considering whether to make the 5,459-mile long journey.

According to one report, if they go, they will be met with a “cold shoulder” from senior members of the exiled royal family.

Harry and Meghan are primarily concerned about the role for their children – Prince Archie, who will be 4 on the day his grandfather is crowned king, and Princess Lilibet, 1, a source close to the palace told Told OK! magazine.

Royal insiders fear that Charlie’s upcoming coronation could be thrown into “chaos” due to a list of demands from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

It is believed that Archie and Lilibet were not invited to attend the coronation, which reportedly did not go down too well with the estranged royals.

“The palace is trying to wrap up talks as quickly as possible because they cannot get straight to the wire. This could lead to chaos,” an insider told the outlet.

“However, what the Sussexes are pushing for is to join the rest of the family at the Palace later that day,” the insider said.

A source close to the palace said the main area of ​​concern is where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want their children to be involved.

“It’s also Prince Archie’s birthday on the day of the coronation, so they want some kind of permission to have a lunch or drinks reception. Even if it’s just a happy birthday.

According to the source, the absence of the two youths from the event was “never a bone of contention”, due to the “restlessness and tantrums” of the younger children.

Harry and Meghan are also reportedly insisting on being joined on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on the big day – a royal protocol strictly reserved only for working members of the royal family.

“However, what the Sussexes are pushing for is to join the rest of the family at the Palace later that day,” the insider told the media.

“It could very well be that it ends in a stalemate and they will not part. But the palace is doing everything in its power to prevent that from happening.”

Charles is set to be formally crowned on May 6, which fans believe was chosen specifically because of the conflict for the Sussexes and Archie’s birthday.

Meanwhile, leaked plans revealed Prince William’s children are expected to attend the coronation, The Times reports.

Harry and Meghan are reportedly pushing to join them on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the coronation.

The coronation drama is the latest sign of discord between the royals since the Sussexes stepped down as senior members of the royal family in 2020.
