Amid the fall out of Prince Harry and Meghan’s dramatic withdrawal from royal life, questions are being asked about when Archie will next see his cousins.

A source told Us Weekly that Kate was “hoping that in the new year, the cousins will spend more time together”. Last month royal correspondent Katie Nicholl pointed out: “Harry grew up very close to his cousins. It was always his intention for his children to be close to William’s children.

Is the grass greener on the other side?

Not only is Harry reportedly struggling to adapt to life outside the palace walls, but…

As Meghan establishes her post-royal life in Canada, a friend claims that the royal has decided to axe several friends from her social circle. “Whilst she’s decided to keep the likes of Amal [Clooney] and Serena [Williams], she’s cut off a string of her former close pals including Janina Gavankar, Abigail Spencer and Lindsay Roth,” claims the source.
