Queen won’t see Archie this Christmas as Harry and Meghan cancel UK return

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not come back to Britain for Christmas – meaning the Queen will not be reunited with Archie, reports have claimed.

They are said to have intended to return in December with their son to see the Royal Family.

But the delay of Meghan’s privacy trial until next autumn means they will stay in the US instead.

The Queen, 94, and other members of the Firm are said to be "very sad" that they haven’t seen much of Archie, the Mail on Sunday reported.

Her Majesty has not seen her youngest great-grandchild for a year.

The High Court granted Meghan, 39, a delay to her privacy trial for a "confidential" reason.

Her lawyers made their case in a private hearing not open to the public.

A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told the Sunday Times there are currently "no plans" to travel before the end of the year.

They are due instead to spend Christmas at their £11million mansion in California with their 17-month-old son, according to reports.

A spokesman for the couple said: "It is unlikely the duke and duchess will be travelling before the end of the year because the focus had been the trial in January.

"As that is no longer happening, there are no plans to travel at the moment, but any travel plans will be kept under review.

"They haven't finalised any plans for what they are doing over the festive period, but Covid restrictions will need to be taken into account."

Prince Charles, 71, is also said to be "sad" he hasn’t seen little Archie in so long.

He reportedly fears he has missed much of his early years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Harry, 36, and Meghan moved to North America last November, first staying in Vancouver, Canada before relocating to Los Angeles, US.
