For those wondering how life is treating Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, the answer appears to be good, but all is not going as planned for her baby boy who could have benefited from having his royal family around him.
Since Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, left England and settled in California, they have given quite a few speeches in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The royal couple has also been very vocal about climate change and women’s rights issues. The Duke of Sussex’s wife rarely talks about her baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, but a friend has been sharing details about her private life.
According to the pal, who spoke to the Daily Mail, Meghan is worried about Archie’s lack of social skills because he does not get the opportunity to interact with other children his age.
If Archie was in London, he would have had play dates with his cousins — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — the children of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
The close family friend told the publication this about the great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II: “Meghan said Archie needs to learn emotional and social skills by being around other young children, something he can’t do with adults. Meghan said ideally they (she and Archie) would be in a baby group class that met in person a couple of times a week. This would give Archie the opportunity to play with other toddlers and help develop his brain.”
Meghan said to the close friend she has been thinking about joining a baby group class so Archie could have friends and playdates, but that is not possible because of the coronavirus and privacy reasons.
The friend shared: “Meghan said she would love to be part of a ‘Mommy and Me’ community, but knows this is impossible even if there was no COVID-19 because of who she is. She said she’s just too well known to do normal things.”
The pal went on to say that the former actress is using technology to make sure her one-year-old child is sociable.
The person claimed: “Meghan does take advantage of connecting with others online and on Zoom, but says it’s just not the same as in person. Plus the consistency of biweekly ‘Mommy and Me’ classes would be good for Archie and a place where she could just be a mom and make new lifelong friends.”
Some royal fans hope that motherhood will be the element that will get Meghan and Kate back together again.
