The Queen saw her grandson Prince Harry for the first time in more than a year at the funeral of her beloved husband, Prince Philip. Prince Harry flew in from the US especially for the service, but he is believed to have flown back home shortly afterwards. Harry did not attend the service with his wife Meghan or son Archie, as Meghan was advised not to fly as she is pregnant.

Since Harry and Meghan stepped back from their senior royal roles and left the UK for North America, the Sussex family have seen little of the Royal Family in person.

Harry, Meghan and Archie are believed to have stayed in touch with some royals via video call during the pandemic.

In an interview with US TV host James Corden earlier this year, Harry said the Queen and his late grandfather kept in touch via Zoom calls and Archie has made an appearance.

Harry said: “They’ve seen Archie running around.”

Harry also hinted the Queen is a doting great-grandmother to Archie from afar, revealing she bought a special gift for Archie’s Christmas present last year.

Harry said: “My grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas and Meg said a waffle maker.

“She sent us a waffle maker for Archie. So breakfast now, Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix in the waffle maker.”

The Queen will no doubt want to see Harry, Meghan and Archie again soon after so long apart.

With another Sussex baby due later this year, the Queen will also undoubtedly be eager to meet her 11th great-grandchild soon too.

When will the Queen next see Archie?

At the moment, it isn’t clear exactly when the Queen could be reunited with her great-grandson Archie.

Prince Harry is expected to attend the unveiling of a statue of his late mother, Princess Diana, at Kensington Palace this summer.

On what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday, Prince William and Prince Harry are expected to visit the Sunken Garden at the Palace for the statue unveiling on July 1, 2021.

Kensington Palace has previously said: “The Princes hope that the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and her legacy.”

However, whether Harry will be able to attend due to travel restrictions remains unknown at this time.

Whether Meghan and Archie will also be present for the event is unknown.

Even if the Sussexes do not visit the UK this summer, there will be plenty of occasions where they could meet the Queen over the coming months.

The usual royal Christmas at Sandringham did not go ahead as usual in 2020 due to Covid restrictions.

However, if lockdown rules ease, the Queen could potentially host the Sussexes among other royals for Christmas 2021.

Although Meghan and Harry are no longer senior working members of the Royal Family, they are still allowed to attend certain royal events.

Perhaps if Covid restrictions have fully eased, Archie could see the Queen again if the Sussexes visit the UK for the annual Trooping the Colour parade in 2022.

However, with June 2022 a long way away, the Queen may see the Sussexes before this date.
