Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor “speaks with a distinct American accent” and, according to sources, chats with the Queen about Zoom.
It is believed that the Queen used Zoom to wish her great-grandson Archie a happy birthday when he turned two earlier this week.
Royal family members have been talking to Archie over video calling since Harry and Meghan moved to California.
In the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, Harry revealed that he had spoken to the Queen more in the past year than in “many, many years.”
“My grandmother and I have a really good relationship. And an understanding. And I have a lot of respect for her,” he added.
Harry also reportedly met twice privately with the Queen when he returned to the UK in April for the funeral of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.
But Archie stayed home with Meghan, who was too pregnant to travel.
According to the MailBuckingham Palace officials did not have an up-to-date picture of Meghan and Harry’s son to accompany birthday news on social media.
A source said: “The truth is that the Prince of Wales has hardly seen his grandson twice since he was born. In fact, any member of Harry’s family can easily count on one hand the number of times they have seen Archie after he was born and before the family Leaving the UK. It’s a very sad situation. “
The source reportedly stressed that no one is directly responsible for the lack of family connections.
The pandemic has left them unable to make social visits to return to the UK, even though Harry was briefly back in Windsor for his grandfather’s funeral.
As a result, the queen and other family members had to make do with video calls for the most part.
However, the relationships between the couple and the royal family are viewed as fragile after the Oprah interview.
