They believe that although the Sussex duo will be present at the event, much of the focus will be on the "vertical line of ascension."

Historian McCreery added: "Precedence will be given to William, Kate, George and his siblings."

Precedence or not, Daily Star reported that King Charles was desperately keen to have his son Harry at the event, reportedly enlisting the help of the Archbishop of Canterbury to mediate the warring brothers.

Expert Daniela Elser had previously called Charles' hopes of bringing the brothers together at the event as "rife with problems", but it would appear a first move has been made.
