Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Do Not Want To 'Rob Their Children Of The Opportunity Of Getting To Know Their Cousins' Amid Security Woes, Source Spills
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want their children to get to know their cousins.
Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are no longer senior royals, they still want their children to have a relationship with their royal relatives, insiders revealed. However, whether they will return to the U.K. to get to know their cousins will depend on how their security bid works out.
"Harry and Meghan are doing everything they can to make the world a better place and feel it would be wrong to rob their children of the opportunity of getting to know their cousins," an insider told Us Weekly.
As previously reported by OK!, Harry is seeking an appeal after the British government declined to grant him permission to pay for police protection in the U.K. Harry's spokesperson said in a statement that the duke inherited a security risk when he was born, as the 37-year-old's family has been subjected to "well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats" in recent years.
Though Harry and Meghan welcomed their two-year-old son, Archie, while they still served as working royals, the former actress gave birth to daughter Lilibet Diana in June 2021. Given that Harry has only returned over the pond twice since stepping back from his duties in March 2020 and Meghan still hasn't been back, Harry's family has yet to meet the newest addition to their family-of-four.

"It’s obviously difficult because of the distance factor, so Harry sweetly organized a special Zoom call with Prince William so that the cousins could get to see each other," the source added. William and Kate Middleton share children Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.
"Harry has his heart set on returning to the U.K. to see the queen with Meghan, Archie and Lilibet, but that will only happen if the government takes the appropriate measures to protect his family," the source explained to the outlet, adding that Harry does not want to put his family at risk.
As previously reported by OK!, Harry and Prince Charles' relationship is believed to be on the mend following his controversial interviews about his royal family. He is even said to have invited Harry to stay with him if he attends his grandmother's Platinum Jubilee in June, as the Prince of Wales is eager to meet his new granddaughter.
As Harry's security woes rage on, it remains unclear whether he and Meghan will attend Prince Philip's memorial service in the Spring.
