A ROYAL expert has said there is a “very real danger the Queen will never see grandson Archie again”.
Her Majesty, 95, has not seen Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s two-year-old son since they moved to Canada in November 2019.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex now live in an £11million mansion in Santa Barbara, after stepping down as senior royals in March 2020.
Archie has not seen any of his British relatives since he was six months old, and royal author Phil Dampier said the young tot may never see the Queen again.
Phil told Fabulous: “I think there is a very real danger the Queen will never see Archie again or never see her new great granddaughter which is tragic.
“I can’t see how when they [Meghan and Harry] go on about compassion and family problems but don’t let their grandfather or great-grandmother see Archie.
“Harry has never met Thomas Markle and he’s never seen his grandson – I think it is grossly unfair.”
Prince Harry flew back to the UK for the first time since his bombshell departure in April for the funeral of his late grandfather, Prince Philip.
Meghan, who is expecting her second child this summer, remained in California following her doctor’s advice.
Phil said of the Duchess of Sussex: “I don’t think she’ll ever come back to the UK.
“I think she’ll get a hostile reception from quite a lot of people.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if she never came back. It is quite possible the Queen will never see her again.”
However, Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine told Fabulous: “I’m sure the Queen will see Archie again, I’m certain she will, it will be important to Harry and Meghan and his future that he knows his other grandma.
“At some stage Archie will come over, definitely.”
Speaking of Meghan, Ingrid said: “I think she will come in the next year or so, especially to counteract all the criticism, she needs to be seen bonding in a way with the other side of Archie’s family.”
Meghan and Harry revealed they were expecting their second child this summer on Valentine’s Day this year, and confirmed during their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview they are expecting a girl.
Their daughter will be granted American citizenship under the Fourteenth Amendment if she is born on American soil.
She will become eighth in line to the throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Prince Harry and Archie.
Meghan previously gave birth to Archie at London’s Portland Hospital in 2019.
Despite being born in the UK, Archie is likely to be eligible for dual nationality, although the family’s immigration status has not been made public.
After stepping back as senior royals, Meghan and Harry have since signed multi-million pound deals with Netflix and Spotify.
