The Queen has a “very special relationship” with Archie and spent a lot of time with him as a baby, a royal biographer has revealed.
Prince Harry is reportedly set to be reunited with the royals this summer for the Trooping of the Colour parade.
Meghan Markle is likely to stay in the US with their son, coronavirus travel restrictions permitting, according to the Daily Mail.
Omid Scobie, who penned royal biography Finding Freedom along with Carolyn Durand, says she doesn’t want to “snub” the family.
He told OK!: “Neither Meghan nor Harry have been vaccinated and travel plans are still very much up in the air. Meghan wouldn’t want to be away from Archie and it would be very tricky to factor a small child into their travels with all the restrictions that could potentially be in place.“
“It seems easier at this moment for Harry to do the trip solo. But it is not Meghan’s intention to snub the family. If Covid wasn’t a factor, she would be there.”
Prior to their departure from the Royal Family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had been living at Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate.
Omid believes their time there helped cement the family’s bond with the Queen.
He explained: “No matter what has happened, the Queen will always remain close to Harry and Meghan.
“She has a very special relationship with Archie and due to them all living in Windsor, was one of the royals to spend the most time with him as a baby.

“Archie loves being on Zoom calls with the family and the Queen has been enjoying those throughout lockdown.
“I’m sure Meghan will send the Queen some gorgeous flowers for her birthday and also get Archie to help her with the card.
“Meghan and Harry feel very sad about the time that the Queen, Philip and Prince Charles have spent without seeing Archie due to the pandemic.”
Earlier this month, students were left shocked when Meghan and Harry joined them in an online poetry class.
The royal couple were guests of honour during a digital event organised by poetry group Get Lit for Black History Month.
Meghan “shared some of her favourite lines” with the aspiring poets and Harry expressed a keen "interest" in the artform.

The class wrote alongside the photo: "We’ve saved the best for last! Guess who surprised our poetry class this weekend?!
"It was the best weekend EVER! Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were magic and kind and interested in poetry!'
"The Duchess even shared some of her favorite poetry lines. We are so grateful for their visit in honor of Black History Month. It goes down as most epic experience in Get Lit history!"
