The editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine in the UK, Ingrid Seward, claims that the Sussex’s distance from the royal family has indeed been a low point for the Monarch.
“The Sussexes, who have barely set foot in the UK since relocating to the US and are unlikely to return any time soon after their Oprah interview sent shockwaves through the royal family,” Seward said.
“Meghan is due to give birth to their daughter – the Queen’s 11th great-grandchild – imminently, but unless Meghan and Harry bring the baby to Britain, the Queen won’t get to meet her.
“She has barely seen Archie since he was born, a source of sadness for her – though she is said to have wished him happy birthday via Zoom when he turned two this month.”
It comes after royal author Phil Dampier said the young tot may never see the Queen again.
Dampier told The Sun: “I think there is a very real danger the Queen will never see Archie again or never see her new great granddaughter which is tragic.
“I can’t see how when they [Meghan and Harry] go on about compassion and family problems but don’t let their grandfather or great-grandmother see Archie.
“Harry has never met Thomas Markle and he’s never seen his grandson – I think it is grossly unfair.”
The Queen has 10 great-grandchildren, and will welcome two more once Meghan Markle welcomes her second and Princess Beatrice her first.
The monarch was last seen with her great-grandchildren, who call her Gan-Gan, in a touching snap released after the death of Prince Philip and taken by the Duchess of Cambridge.
And according to Seward it is occasions such as these that keep the monarch going.
“She is close to them all, mentioning them in her Christmas speeches, in her letters and in conversation,” Seward said.
“In fact, her family of eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren is what keeps her going.”
