Prince Charles ‘sad’ he has not seen grandson Archie for more than a year

Prince Charles is "sad" he hasn’t seen his grandson Archie Mountbatten-Windsor in more than a year, it has been reported.

The Prince of Wales hasn’t seen Prince Harry and Meghan’s little Archie since the pair left the UK last November, first living in Vancouver, Canada, and then Los Angeles.

It has been reported Charles "enjoyed" popping into Frogmore Cottage to see his youngest grandchild and fears he has missed much of his early years due to the pandemic.

Other members of the Royal Family, including the Queen, are reportedly missing Archie too, and have expressed sadness over the fact Prince William’s children, Archie’s cousins, do not know him yet.

A Sussex source told the Daily Mail: "They are now in their own family home, which they haven’t had properly before.

"It’s theirs, it’s their forever home, where they are going to base themselves.

"Archie is moving about and is lively and they’re having a great time."

It has been 12 months since the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, has seen Archie, save for occasional video calls in lockdown.

Prince Harry and Meghan have said in recent months the only reason the couple have not flown back to the UK is because of the ongoing world state.

Coronavirus will force them to spend Christmas and possibly New Year too at home in Santa Barbara, California, in their £11million nine-bedroom mansion.

A friend of Prince Charles said: ‘The Prince of Wales enjoyed popping into Frogmore Cottage to see his youngest grandchild and is sad that he hasn’t seen him for so long.

"He has missed much of his development since he is now growing up in the USA.

"Other members of the family are very sad at not seeing him.

"Everyone really misses Archie – they feel it’s particularly sad for the Queen and Prince Philip.

"Harry always said he looked forward to raising his family with William’s – which of course is not now happening."
