A source revealed to US Weekly recently that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take their son Archie to Her Majesty on his first birthday celebration. 

On May 6, 2019, baby Archie was born at the Portland Hospital in London. On his first birthday, his parents will be "celebrating at Queen Elizabeth II's Scottish estate, Balmoral," according to an insider.

The 93-year-old ruler hasn't seen the royal baby since last summer. The source said that Harry and Meghan have conversed with her about having a picnic on the grounds.

"HE'S INTO EVERYTHING"

"Archie loves being outside, and you can already tell he's inherited [Prince] Charles' passion for nature," the source continued. "He gets so excited at seeing all the trees. Now that he's just walking, he's into everything — he'll often end up covered in mud!"

The source also claimed that Archie, who is seventh in the line of succession to the British throne, will get a second birthday bash. It will be held at their home in Canada. The insider said:

"Doria [Ragland], and BFFs Jessica Mulroney and Abigail Spencer will be invited to stay with their families for the weekend."

QUEEN IS HEARTBROKEN

As reported by Daily Mail, the Queen is worried she will miss out on seeing Archie grow up as Harry and Meghan build a new life in Canada.   

She is reportedly "heartbroken" at the idea of not seeing her youngest great-grandson routinely. She additionally fears they won't have a "relationship" as he grows up. 

Her Majesty is the first member of the royal family to meet Archie on May 8, 2019.

CLOSE RELATIONSHIP

Prince William and Kate Middleton are also upset to not have a close relationship with Archie, the source claimed.

In January, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned as senior royals in a move to become financially independent from Queen Elizabeth II.

They are currently living on Vancouver Island. The Queen affirmed on January 13 that the couple would never be using their HRH royal titles again.

As reported by Times reported that Archie could join his parents at the trooping of the colour in June as well. The family of three are also expected to spend time with Prince Charles and his wife Camilla at the retreat of the Prince of Wales on the estate.

According to Daily Mail, Her Majesty is the first member of the royal family to meet Archie on May 8, 2019. Harry and Meghan went to Windsor Castle at the time to visit her after they introduced their first child to the world.
