Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor has not seen his great-grandparents in over a year. According to royal experts, it is undoubtedly not Queen Elizabeth II who will be the one making an effort to travel and see him and his younger sibling, who will be born soon.
In the past few days, there have been some significant negative developments in Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Queen Elizabeth‘s fragile relationship.
Her Majesty issued a statement revealing that she is removing all patronages and several titles from the power couple.
They hit back with a heavily-worded statement about the true definition of service. There is also an uproar in Buckingham Palace over the potential explosive interview that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will do with Oprah Winfrey.
Amid the drama that has taken place since Prince Harry and his wife stepped down from their royal duties — Archie is growing up without several key members of his family by his side.
The last time the child saw his royal relatives was in November 2019. With Meghan Markle being pregnant with her second child, many predict that she is less inclined to travel during a global pandemic.
Many royal fans wondered if there is a possibility that the Queen could visit Archie in California. Could the Queen fly to meet Prince Harry’s second royal baby when he or she is born?
Royal commentator Camilla Tominey has claimed that the Queen will not undertake such a travel plan and added: “With Archie thought not to have seen his Royal relatives in the flesh since November 2019, the pitter-patter of another pair of tiny royal feet also begs the question as to when the Queen and Prince Philip can expect to see their youngest great-grandchildren again.”
The royal expert then explained: “At 94, the monarch and her 99-year-old husband no longer undertake long-haul travel, so there is no prospect of them visiting the Sussexes at their £11million Santa Barbara mansion.”
She went on to say that the burden falls on Meghan and Harry’s shoulders to make the happy family reunion happen.
The commentator continued: “They did clear the air at the Sandringham summit and have been in contact, but it’s obviously been difficult with neither being able to travel and see each other face to face. The pandemic has certainly not helped matters.”
Harry might travel to London in the summer for a series of events around the royal family, but nothing is certain because his wife is set to give birth around the same time and the ongoing pandemic is still an issue — leaving the much-anticipated reunion up in the air.
