Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been enjoying a very different life from the rest of the royal family since leaving the UK for California in 2020. They have settled into a beautiful home in Montecito where they are now raising their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
Born in the UK, Archie had a chance to meet his relatives (although he won’t remember the meetings) while Harry and Meghan were still living there during his first year of life. However, Lilibet has yet to travel across the UK and has never met Harry’s family. Now the two children will not attend King Charles’ coronation in May, causing some “pity” for the royal couple.
Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet are not close to the royal family
Archie was born in London in 2019, about a year before Harry and Meghan left the royal family to start a new life in North America. During this time Archie lived with his parents in the grounds of Windsor Castle and certainly got to know the other members of the royal family quite well. Though too young to remember, he spent time with his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and grandfather, King Charles, and even met his cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Despite this, the royal children are not close to their cousins.
Lilibet is yet to meet the royal family. Although they have named her after Queen Elizabeth, the young queen is only one year old and has not yet been to the UK to meet her grandfather, uncle William and aunt Kate or her cousins. She also never had the opportunity to meet Queen Elizabeth.
A royal expert feels sorry for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children
Now, as the coronation approaches, Harry and Meghan have announced that Meghan will stay home in California with their children while Harry attends his father’s ceremony. Of course, traveling with a one-year-old and a nearly four-year-old certainly isn’t easy, and no one blames the couple for keeping the kids at home. Still, royal expert Gyles Brandreth says he is “sorry” that the children are missing out on such an important family event.
“In a way, I especially feel sorry for the kids,” Brandreth told Page Six. “The reason they are a prince and princess is because they are the grandsons of a reigning sovereign.” Archie and Lili missing the coronation only alienates them further from the rest of the royal family. It’s still unclear if the two children will spend more time in the UK when they’re a little older.
Meghan Markle reportedly wants to make peace for the sake of her children
Despite the drama, rumors circulated that Meghan wanted to remain in good standing with the royal family for the sake of her children. Meghan reportedly wants the kids to have a relationship with King Charles – especially as they have no relationship with Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, with whom she fell out in the months leading up to their wedding.
How Harry and Meghan proceed to make peace with the royal family remains to be seen. Maybe it starts with Harry attending Charles’s coronation. Harry and Meghan, who live in the US, certainly gave them all the space they needed to start over.
