Queen Elizabeth II is concerned about missing out on Prince Harry’s son, Archie’s milestones, new reports have claimed.


Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle relocated to North America with their 9-month-old son, Archie, Queen Elizabeth hasn’t set her eyes on her great-grandson.

Harry felt as though a huge burden had been heaved off his shoulders since he had that heart-to-heart with his grandmother. 

The move has been tough on the Queen as a source exclusively told Us Weekly that the monarch was worried she might be missing out on Archie’s milestones.


The source, who spoke to the news site for its latest issue, said that the Queen was “heartbroken over the thought of not getting to see her great-grandson."

The insider also stated that the monarch had hopes of having a relationship with Archie "but it’s looking unlikely that will ever happen.”

The story was unveiled soon after People reported that Harry and his grandmother had met for a lunch date at the Windsor Castle.

This would be the first face-to-face meeting between the duo, who had allegedly just enjoyed each other’s presence since Megxit was announced in January.

Although Harry returned to the U.K for his final round of royal engagements over the next few days, he and his wife, Meghan Markle opted to leave their son in Canada.

That move must have disappointed the Queen whom Closer Weekly revealed would love to see her great-grandson again.

Despite the drama surrounding her family, the monarch allegedly understands what is driving her grandson and his wife.

A source disclosed to Closer Weekly that the Queen’s empathy with the duo came as a result of Harry’s past struggles with depression.

According to the source, the Queen wanted to see Harry happy and settled and had even told him that if he ever changed his mind about his royalty, she and other Royal Family members would readily accept him back.

The source added that Harry felt as though a huge burden had been heaved off his shoulders since he had that heart-to-heart with his grandmother. 

Meanwhile, since he and Meghan


their plans to step back from their royal duties and divide their time between the U.K. and North America, the


have never seemed more at peace.
