Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie won’t be going back to his birthplace this month when Meghan would join her husband in the United Kingdom.
The British paper, The Sunday Times, mentioned that the Duchess of Sussex would leave once again and will be leaving behind their son, who is currently nine months old in Canada.
She will be going back to London for their final round of official engagements.
“Meghan is leaving Archie in Canada for this trip. When the Duchess of Sussex returns to the UK from Canada for a final round of engagements with Prince Harry, who arrived last week, she is expected—again—to leave behind their nine-month-old son.”
Queen Elizabeth II and the other royal family members are said to be sad that they have seen so little of their baby.
“The news will be disappointing for the queen and the royal family, who are understood to be ‘very sad’ that they have seen so little of Archie since his birth.”
The queen met the eight great-grandchild after he was born in May but wasn’t able to attend his christening in July due to a previously scheduled trip to Sandringham.
In their defense, they said they weren’t able to attend the christening of Prince William’s youngest child in 2018 too.
The senior royals are busy with their schedule.
Archie, on the other hand, won’t be able to meet up with the other cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
The family of 3 spent their winter holidays in Canada before they made the big announcement that they were stepping down as senior members of the family.
During that announcement in the UK, the couple was there but left Archie in Canada. They were reportedly seen spending a lot of their time hiking and hanging out with their son in Vancouver. Although the couple has been traveling back and forth during the period, Harry was not tagging along with them.
Prince Harry is currently in the UK for his eco-tourism summit speech in Edinburgh, Scotland, and has met up with musician Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir at Abbey Road Studios. Meghan is set to be following him next week.
On March 5, they will attend as a couple at the Endeavor Fund Awards, March 7, for the Mountbatten Music Festival and the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
The other days, Harry will be attending the Silverstone Experience, whereas Meghan will join the International Women’s Day on March 8.
The decision to leave behind their son is so that they could focus well on their public appearances lineup.
One source from People magazine said, “Archie is the priority. It’s very much still about taking care of him and putting the family first. He’s a happy kid—he loves to laugh. Archie and Harry have such a good time together. And Meghan Markle is a great mom. She’s very much about tending to him. They are trying to live their life as regular parents.”
