Kate Middleton told Meghan Markle to ‘sit at the back’ if she attended coronation

Meghan Markle’s ex-pal slams Sussexes for ‘utterly selfish’ coronation decision
Royal family has ‘no interest’ in talking to Prince Harry at Charles’ coronation
There’s “Anarchy in the US.”
Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon wants “messy” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to stop whining about their royal woes.
“If you want to be normal and outside of [the family], then f–k off. Just f–k off and shut up,” the London-born singer — whose Malibu home is located about 60 miles away from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Montecito, Calif., estate — told the Telegraph in an interview published Wednesday.
Lydon, 67, can relate to Harry, 38, and Markle, 41, because he also had to step out of the spotlight when he left the Sex Pistols in 1978 and disbanded Public Image Ltd in 1993.
“I’ve had to make decisions like this in the past,” he noted. “I had to leave the Pistols. I had to break up PiL a couple of times because the situation was unsustainable.”
But the punk-rock star argued that he was able to come to terms with his decision whereas the Sussexes can’t seem to move on.
“If that was their dilemma then please go away, all right? And we’ll love you for it,” he said.
Lydon called the feud between Harry, Markle and the rest of the royals “so messy” and dragged the prince specifically for airing his dirty laundry in his scathing memoir, “Spare.”
“I’ve never been one for kiss-and-tell books,” the musician said. “They’re very, very spiteful to families and friends.”
Harry notoriously dragged his father, King Charles III, and his brother, Prince William, in the controversial tome, which was released in January.
Lydon seems to have changed his tune about the Sussexes considering he has defended them in the past.

After Harry and Markle married in 2018, the singer told The Post, “It seems as if they like each other. Leave them be happy. I love [the royals] as human beings.”
He added, “I just hate the tax fraudulence we have to endure,” referencing taxpayers funding much of the royal family’s annual income.
Lydon has long been an outspoken critic of the monarchy.
The Sex Pistols famously released their anti-establishment anthem “God Save the Queen” during Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977.
British radio stations famously refused to play the song, though it still topped the music charts.
Lydon’s latest harsh words came on the same day that Buckingham Palace confirmed Harry will attend Charles’ coronation ceremony without Markle.
Page Six reported that the former “Suits” star will remain home in California with the couple’s two children — Prince Archie, 3, and Princess Lilibet, 1 — so she can celebrate their son’s 4th birthday, which falls on the same day as the coronation.
Charles and his wife, Queen Camilla, will be coronated in London on May 6.
