Closer Weekly: Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Misses Harry's Son Archie & Would Love to See Him Again
Queen Elizabeth is allegedly missing her great-grandson following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent move to Canada.
The fact that she gave her blessings to Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle when they chose to split their time between the U.K. and Canada doesn’t exempt the Queen from missing her great-grandson, Archie.
“Elizabeth has asked Harry and Meghan to return to the U.K. for the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey — it’ll be one of their last royal engagements.”
The source added that while the monarch was in support of Harry and his wife living their best lives, she had been feeling a little down and had even caught a cold.

Despite that, her grandson is focused on having a good time as they had plans to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Canada.
"Questions about how the couple would successfully live as an independent family resurfaced..."
In preparation for the big day, Meghan has been giving Harry cooking lessons as the Duke of Sussex has plans to put his “culinary skills to the test by whipping up a pot roast dinner.”
This latest piece of information came after Elle revealed that the couple would be returning to the U.K. with their son, for a short time.
The site reported that the Queen had requested that they return for the Commonwealth service at Westminster Abbey in London on March 9.
The service would be part of the final round of royal engagements in which Meghan and Harry would partake in before making their final transition to their lives as non-royals.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Town and Country Magazine added that not all details of Harry and Meghan’s new plan, including if they would be able to use their Sussex Royal brand in private commercial deals, are yet to be discussed.
Questions about how the couple would successfully live as an independent family resurfaced after fans learned that Harry had delivered a speech at a summit in Miami, which was sponsored by JP Morgan.
During his speech, Harry opened up about losing his mother, Princess Diana, and his decision to step back from his role as a senior royal.
Meanwhile, Meghan spoke about her love for Harry as media outlets claimed that the couple’s appearance had earned them $1 million.
