Inside Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s week with their children Archie and Lilibet

The sad passing of Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and their separation from their two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 15, for the late monarch’s funeral have made for a difficult month for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

During their 17-day trip, Harry and Meghan first traveled to Manchester, then to Germany for charity events, and then they returned to the UK when the Queen unexpectedly became ill. The royal couple are taking this week off to spend time with their kids now that they are back at their family home in Montecito, California.

The next episode of The Duchess’ podcast Archetypes, which was put on hold during the period of official mourning for Her Majesty The Queen, is scheduled to air next week. So one wonders how the Sussex family is spending their time together this week.

We anticipate that Harry and Meghan will be at home with their youngest child, Lilibet, during school hours since their eldest child, Archie, attends his California preschool during the week.

Allison P. Davis recently spoke with The Cut for The New York Times website and disclosed that Archie had returned to school and was prepared to start attending classes all day. Meghan revealed in the same article how adorable it is when Archie greets his parents at the school gates.

In a post about the experience, Allison P. Davis, who accompanied Meghan on the school run, stated: “He’s so excited to see her, repeating ‘Momma, Momma, Momma’ in his little voice, that he runs toward her and leaves his lunchbox behind on the ground. They both close their eyes as she snatches him up in a bear hug that is so genuine in its emotion.

Archie jumps out of the car as we approach the house, Allison continued. Archie tangles his legs around Harry as he ends a phone call.

The Duchess also mentioned to Alison how she and Harry are teaching Archie about helping those who are less fortunate, and it appears that the Sussexes regularly engage in the following act of kindness.

“If he [Archie] forgets to say please or thank you, Meghan reminds him of the manners that make the man,” she wrote in the car.

At a stoplight, Meghan pulls out a brand-new black backpack from the trunk and hands it to her security detail to give to a homeless man on the corner.

“They are showing Archie that not everyone lives in a house, some do, some do, and some live in a house between two others,” they said. They created kits to distribute that included granola bars, water, and peanut butter crackers. Then Archie says, “I ate one!”

Lilibet, who is 15 months old and has entered the toddler stage, is probably very busy exploring the family’s large home and grounds, where they have a play area and keep chickens.

The kids currently have a “amazing” nanny named Lauren who has been with the family for some time, according to Meghan in a recent episode of her podcast, Archetypes, so the couple has help with their kids at home.

Doria, Meghan’s mother, lives fairly close by, so we anticipate she will drop by this week to visit the family and spend time with her two grandchildren.
