LONDON — King Charles III’s office has been in touch with Prince Harry about the new monarch’s coronation, raising the possibilit­y the prince will attend the historic ceremony despite tensions within the royal family.

If Harry and his wife, Meghan, were to attend the May 6 coronation at Westminste­r Abbey in London, it would be the first meeting between Charles and his younger son since Harry deepened the rift within the House of Windsor by revealing family secrets in his bestsellin­g book, “Spare.’’

A spokespers­on for Harry and Meghan, also known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, confirmed Sunday that Harry had received “email correspond­ence’’ from the king’s office about the coronation. Buckingham Palace did not immediatel­y respond to a request for comment.

“An immediate decision on whether the Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time,” the couple’s office said in a statement.

Harry continues to share his experience­s and critique of the royal family as he promotes his book.

While taking part Saturday in a live-streamed conversati­on with Dr. Gabor Mate, author of “The Myth Of Normal: Trauma, Illness & Healing In A Toxic Culture,” the prince discussed his past drug use and said he had urged other members of the family to have therapy.

He said criticism of “Spare’’ won’t make him be silent because talking about these issues has helped him deal with the trauma in his life.

“The more they criticize, the more they comment, the more I feel the need to share,” Harry said. “I found a way to be able to look around, and firstly ignore, the criticisms and the abuse.”
