They have headed back to the UK for Commonwealth Day celebrations and to wrap up their royal duties before officially stepping down on March 31. But a decision that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made upon their return has led to the pair, Markle in particular, to be criticized as being a cruel and nasty move.

Though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex came back to the UK after relocating to Canada, a very important member of their family, was missing—their son, baby Archie Harrison. As a result, royal correspondents Rita Panahi and Jonathan Moran revealed that the move is possibly one that is showing major disrespect to the Queen, by denying her time with her great-grandson.

“Now on Harry and Meghan, it has been said that not bringing Archie was particularly cruel to the Queen, the Queen wanted to see her great-grandchild,” Panahi said. “Do you think it was a bit of a snub?”

“Nothing is left to chance here, it was a cruel and nasty move to stop the Queen from seeing her great-grandchild,” Moran replied. “They have got the money, support and the people around them to help them to manage a trip, first-class, private jets whatever they are doing with a young child. I think it is cruel, nasty and bitter.”

The couple also left Archie in Canada when they briefly came back to the UK to handle the logistics of their new lives after their bombshell announcement that they were stepping back. The family had also vacationed in the country for six weeks at the end of 2019—meaning that Archie may not have been back in the UK since then. If that was the case, it would mean that not only have his great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, but also his grandfather, Prince Charles, have been denied a chance to see him.

It is unclear why the Duke and Duchess continue to leave their son behind, as claims that they felt he was too young to fly have been considered as inaccurate since they took him with them for their trip to Africa last Fall.

The couple’s official royal duties will wrap at the end of the month. Their step down will see them no longer working as members of the royal family, and they are being stripped of their HRH titles. They will retain the Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles.
