Meghan Markle is reportedly “terrified” of history repeating itself when it comes to her children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

That’s according to a royal commentator, who claims the Duchess of Sussex “hates” when people describe her own childhood as dysfunctional and, despite moving away from Britain and walking away from royal duties with her husband, Prince Harry, harbours fears her kids will end up having no relationship with their Royal cousins.

Since Harry and Meghan’s decision to step back from Royal duties in 2020, the family has made their home in Montecito, California. Their son, Archie, was just a year old when they relocated, while their daughter, Lilibet, has lived her entire life in the US.

Royal commentator and author Tom Quinn told the Mirror: “She is also really worried that her children will have no real relationship of any kind with their cousins George, Charlotte and Louis. Meghan loves the idea of having a big happy family and hates it when people describe her childhood and her family as dysfunctional. She’s terrified history is going to repeat itself.”

He added: “A friend of the couple – one of Meghan’s few aristocratic friends from her time in the UK – told me Meghan does miss some aspects of life in the UK and worries that her children will blame her if they never get to see their cousins and feel as adults that they have been deprived of what might have been a fun and meaningful existence in the UK as working royals.”

The relationship between Meghan and Harry and the rest of the Royal family has been strained in recent years, especially following controversial comments made during interviews, their Netflix series, and in Harry’s memoir ‘Spare’, which was released last year. The relationship between Harry and his older brother William has been further strained by the couple’s revelations.

In the next month, Harry is due to return to the UK to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. On May 8, the Duke will give a speech at a special service marking the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

It’s still uncertain whether Meghan will join Harry on this trip or if he’ll journey alone, leaving Meghan in California with their two kids, Archie and Lilibet. Meghan is reportedly hesitant about visiting the UK, while Harry has only made a handful of trips since they stepped down from Royal duties four years ago.

The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming visit comes after his recent legal loss in an appeal against the High Court’s UK security ruling in February. In 2020, the British government told him that he wouldn’t receive the same kind of publicly funded police protection in the UK after giving up his status as a working member of the Royal family.
