Queen: ‘We should not be too worried’ about health says expert

The Queen finds it difficult that she has been unable to see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ’s children, a royal expert has claimed.

Her Majesty has not seen great-grandson Archie since 2019 and is yet to meet Lilibet, who was born in the United States in June.

It’s unclear when Harry and Meghan will both return to the UK with their children, with some tipping them to come to Britain for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.

And speaking in the Channel 5 documentary 2021: The Queen’s Terrible Year, royal expert Camilla Tominey says it has been hard for the Queen to be so far away from her two great-grandchildren.

She said: “I’m sure the Queen was absolutely delighted to hear the news that the Sussexes were expecting a second child.”

She continued: “But it is difficult for the Queen. She has not been able to see Archie.

“I think the last time she was able to see Archie in the flesh was November 2019.

“The only way the Queen will be able to see these children is if they come over to the UK.

“Maybe she will see them next year when she marks her Platinum Jubilee. We have to wait and see.”

Last week it was reported that the Queen was looking forward to Christmas and her traditional family festive get together at her Norfolk estate of Sandringham.

It is understood the Queen will travel to Sandringham on or around Friday, December 17.

Christmas guests will include Prince charles and the Duchess of Cornwall as well as Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and their three children.

But one report has claimed Harry and Meghan not be coming to the UK to join the Queen for her first Christmas without the late Prince Philip .

The couple had reportedly been invited to join the rest of the royals at Sandringham for Christmas.

But a source told Page Six : “There’s a lot that goes into the logistics and the planning of the family Christmas, so of course, staff know that Harry and Meghan are not coming.

“If they were, they would have communicated it to their family by now.

“But this is Her Majesty’s first Christmas without her husband, so one would have hoped they would want to be with her.”

The Sussexes have not commented on the claims.
