The Times: Meghan Will Leave Son Archie in Canada as She Returns to UK for Final Round of Engagements with Harry

Meghan Markle decided to leave her son, Archie, back in Canada as she made her way back to the UK for the final leg of royal duties.

Despite reports that Queen Elizabeth II has been missing her great-grandson, Archie, new stories have claimed that she won't be setting eyes on him anytime soon.

According to Harper's Bazaar, Meghan Markle has no plans to take Archie along when she returns to the United Kingdom for a final round of engagements with her husband, Prince Harry.


While royal observers have shared their disappointment at the state of events, the site stated that the Queen and the royal family would be the most hurt by the news as they have been "sad" that they have seen little of Archie since he was born nine months ago.

It would be recalled that Meghan and Harry made it known that their priority was their son, through their website. 

The couple had explained, in detail, the changes that would occur once they officially step away from royal duties on March 31.

Today is #earthday - an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our 🌍 are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday

Despite the changes, the one thing that remained paramount was their son's safety as they stated:

"It is agreed that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to require effective security to protect them and their son."

Closer Weekly had reported back in February that the Queen would have loved another opportunity to hang out with Archie as she didn't want the tot to feel "alienated" from the royal side of his family.

The monarch, who had reportedly gotten a cold from all the stress that came from the drama of Megxit, however, had nothing against Harry and Meghan wanting to start a new life elsewhere.

As it turned out, the pair's new life has made no room for them to teach their child royal rules and etiquettes. 

The couple's plan became public after a source exclusively told Closer Weekly that Meghan and Harry "are determined to give Archie a normal life."

YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they’ve increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe - from Guadalajara to Italy. You made this happen. Thank you.

The source also made it clear that their decision came about as a result of Meghan's distaste for royal protocols. 

With that in mind, the Duke of Sussex and his Duchess have gotten more involved in their child's upbringing as they want him to have a normal childhood.
