Queen Elizabeth’s ‘Worst Fear’ Is That She Won’t See Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Son Archie Again, Claims Royal Source
Prince Harry, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and their son Archie will officially leave the royal family soon and many have wondered how Queen Elizabeth will deal with this exit. One royal expert believes that she fears she won’t see Archie again since the distance is so far, but another source believes that the queen isn’t too worried about her great-grandson moving away.
The queen supported the Sussexes’ decision
When Prince Harry and Meghan announced that they wanted to leave their royal duties, many fans were surprised that the queen worked with them to finalize the details.
She released a statement in support of their move away from the royal family. “Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family,” the statement read.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family. I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life,” the queen noted.
The queen is reportedly worried she may never see Archie
Moving away from your family is definitely a huge life change, but the Sussexes felt they had to do what was best for them by escaping the constant public and media scrutiny that was taking a toll.
With the couple going to their final royal engagements, their official exit is fast approaching and some believe that the queen is worried about Archie being so far away. The queen is “heartbroken over the thought of not getting to see her great-grandson,” a source told Us Weekly. “The queen would love to have a relationship with Archie, but it’s looking unlikely that will ever happen.”
The source added, “The queen’s worst fear is that she may never see Archie again. She’s trying to stay optimistic about this situation and would never stoop to casting any aspersions on Meghan’s character — even after everything that’s happened.”
Another source claims that Prince Harry “feels terrible about hurting his grandmother, whom he adores.”
“He misses nights out with his boys, polo matches and rugby, and he’s really been craving a decent pint,” the insider shared with Us Weekly. “He had to put his wife first, end of story. Even if it’s left him feeling a bit isolated.”
Is the queen really concerned?
While reports swirled that the queen was disappointed that Prince Harry and Meghan didn’t bring Archie for their visit to the UK for their final engagements, one source believes she isn’t that bothered by it.
Royal correspondent Keir Simmons claimed that the queen isn’t complaining, sharing with Today, “Some of the British press are trying to paint Harry and Meghan’s apparent decision not to bring baby Archie here to the UK as disappointing for the queen. I’ve got to tell you, that is very unlikely. Anyone who knows the biography of the queen will know that she really isn’t that into babies.”
“I can almost guarantee she is not complaining that she isn’t seeing Archie right now,” Simmons added.
