Baby Archie might have a "lonely" upbringing in Canada, according to a royal commentator who claimed it was sad he will not see much of his cousins.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have left the Royal Family in a move dubbed "Megxit" by commentators and a royal expert questioned if this will have an effect on the type of childhood Archie has.
Angela Mollard told the ROYALS podcast that it is particularly sad he will miss out on growing up alongside his youngest cousin, Prince Louis.
She said: “He is fairly close in age to Louis – that could be a friendship throughout this life – and yet he is being denied that because of the falling out between William and Harry.

“You would hope that they [Meghan and Harry] would think longer-term but I’m not sure that family and that close, secure family relationship that say Kate has wanted for her children is necessarily that important to someone like Meghan.
"I mean that’s not her background. She doesn’t have that experience of a tangle of siblings falling over each other and having tiffs and laughs."

The commentator said: "I think that at every opportunity they should be taking him back to the UK to form those friendships and those relationships with their cousins.
"I mean you see how much fun someone like George has with Isla and Savannah Phillips or with Zara Phillips’ children Mia and Lena.
"That’s the ideal opportunity, that’s what everybody wants from their cousins and unfortunately, I think Archie is going to be quite separated from that."

But Angela conceded that it is speculative, adding: "We don’t know what sort of schooling he will have, what sort of personality, we know very, very little."
The royal commentator added that she expects Harry and Meghan to move home again but said their movements are much harder to predict than William and Kate's.
In January, it was claimed that little Archie had only met his royal cousins twice despite living just 20 minutes away from them at the time.
