The Queen’s funeral is set to take place next Monday [September 19], and many royal watchers are speculating whether Meghan and Prince Harry’s two children will be bought over to the UK to join the Royal Family in their period of mourning the late monarch. At present, the Sussexes are in the UK without three-year-old Archie and one-year-old Lilibet Diana. Speaking on GB News, royal expert and American journalist Kinsey Schofield discussed how Meghan’s mother Doria could be set to fly over the two little ones over to the UK to join their parents and how the decision “could be special” for King Charles III “to have all of his grandchildren there” in the days surrounding the funeral.
Speaking to Dan Wootton, Ms Schofield said: “We’re trying to debate whether Doria will attend or, at least, bring Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, back over [to the UK].
“Lili spent her first birthday over [in the UK] so she’s familiar with their Windsor home.”
Being asked if you take a one and a three-year-old to a state funeral, she added: “I don’t think they would take them to the funeral.
“I do think it would be nice for them to be within the environment, there’s so much tradition.
“I would feel like I missed out growing up knowing that I wasn’t around to experience such an incredible once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Ms Schofield added that it would be “nice to have them around, to see the family members, love on their aunts and uncles and grandfather.
“I think that would be important, I think that would be important to King Charles to have all of his grandchildren there to mourn with him, I think that would be really special.”
She continued: “I don’t know if we would see that much of them”, adding that “I’m sure Harry and Meghan are missing them.”
“The ability” for the children to get over to the UK is possible but it’s whether of not, Meghan and Harry “want the chaos of the press discussing them”.
