The royal family is a tight-knit one. Its members are extremely private and keep a circle of very close friends and family.
However, Archie Harrison, the son of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, seems isolated from the rest of his royal loved ones. Some onlookers wonder if he would ever create a friendship with the kids of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Yet, a royal expert says the Cambridges children don’t actually need such a close childhood bond with Archie.
Archie Harrison is living far away from his royal cousins
Archie has three first cousins: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louise. He also has a few second cousins as well.
However, while most of the royals live in or near London, Archie and his parents reside in California. The Sussexes moved in March 2020 when Archie was almost 1 year old. He has not been back to the United Kingdom since.
Additionally, the Sussexes are currently not on good terms with rest of the royal family. Sources say there is tension between the two sides, which was exacerbated after Harry and Meghan gave an explosive tell-all interview to Oprah Winfrey.
In any case, it seems both physical and emotional distance might be in the way of Archie creating bonds with family members his age in the U.K.
