The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children will not have a ‘childhood connection’ with cousin Archie, but will ‘really appreciate him later in life,’ claims the royal author
- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children are expected to bond with Archie
- Ingrid Seward claims it will be ‘exciting’ to visit each other abroad
- The royal author says the nephews and nieces will ‘appreciate’ each other, despite the parents’ split
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children will develop a close relationship with their cousin Archie Mountbatten-Windsor later in life, a royal author claims.
Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty magazine and author of Prince Philip Revealed: A Man of His Century, proposed Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three. are likely to establish a relationship with the son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, despite the apparent divide between their parents.
She told it to express that the cousins will appreciate each other because it is “difficult for members of the royal family to form friendships outside” the Firm.
Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, live with their son Archie, one, in a $ 14.7 million house in Santa Barbara, California.

Ms. Seward said: ‘I am sure Diana would have wanted her sons’ descendants to be friends, as she would have known how difficult it is to make friends outside of the family, as people cannot be trusted not to let some rashness escape.
But they might be friends with Archie when they’re older. How cool to have a California cousin who will become a guy like Archie. So exciting for them to stay with him and vice versa.
“So they may not have the youth band, which they really don’t need because they have a lot of little boyfriends, but they’ll really appreciate Archie later in life.”
Ingrid’s prediction follows Harry and William’s meeting for the first time, after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex share everything with Oprah Winfrey.
The Duke of Sussex returned to the United Kingdom on April 17 to attend Prince Philip’s funeral, having stepped down as a senior royal in January 2020 and subsequently had his titles taken away by the Queen.

He flew back to California, where he now lives in a £ 11 million Montecito mansion with Meghan, 39, who is pregnant with their second child days later and misses the Queen’s 95th birthday on April 21.
Charles, William and Harry are said to have spoken after the interview, but they were thought to be ‘unproductive’.
However, a spokesperson for the Sussex couple confirmed that they wished Kate and William a happy 10th wedding anniversary last week.
William and Harry are expected to meet again in the summer when they unveil a new statue to Princess Diana at Kensington Palace.
Insiders hope the July 1 event – done to commemorate what would have been their mother’s 60th birthday – will help mend their relationship.
