Archie Harrison will not return to Britain with his parents as they bid farewell to their senior royal roles. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are understood to have left their nine-month-old son in the care of a nanny and close friends at their rented property on Vancouver Island when they have travelled elsewhere since Christmas.
Baby Archie stayed behind when the Sussex’s returned to Britain in January to announce their wish to step down as senior royals.
When the couple travelled to the USA last month it was understood Archie had been left at home again.
On both these occasions, it was reported the youngster was being looked after a by a nanny and by Meghan’s close friend Jessica Mulroney.
Who will look after Archie when Meghan and Harry are in UK?
While it has not been confirmed who will look after Archie when Meghan returns to the UK on March 5, it seems likely he will have his usual nanny and close friends of the couple on hand.
While Archie may be safer off staying in Canada, his absence will be sorely felt by his royal relatives on this occasion.
Meghan and Harry will cease to be senior royals from March 31 and re expected to visit Britain less as they carve out a new life for themselves.
The Sunday Times reported Archie’s great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II was “very sad” he would not be joining his parents in the UK on this occasion.
The Queen and Prince Philip have seen little of Archie since his birth on May 6, 2019.
The great grandparents were unable to attend his christening on July 6 due to a prior royal engagement.
They also missed his presence at Sandringham at Christmas after the Sussex’s chose to spend it in Canada instead.
Archie has not been seen out with his parents in the UK since last summer.
He last photographed in public during the Sussex’s tour of South Africa in autumn.
Since then Meghan and Harry have shared just one new photograph of their son which they posted to mark the start of 2020.
