  • Prince Harry reportedly wanted Archie Harrison to be best friends with Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

  • Harry and Meghan Markle moved to Los Angeles after they stepped back from the royal family.

  • According to Finding Freedom, the royal feud kept the cousins from bonding.

  • Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s biography comes out August 11.

There are 15 more days until Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s Finding Freedom biography comes out, but the wait isn’t totally unbearable, because there’s another excerpt to pour over in the meantime. Sadly, though, the latest revelation in the book details how Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son, Archie Harrison, never got the chance to bond with his cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

As we all know, Meghan and Harry stepped back from the royal family in January. A couple months after their bombshell announcement, sources revealed Harry felt like Archie “has been abandoned” by the royal family. But even before their royal exit and move, it was clear that Harry’s wish to have Archie be “best friends” with his cousins was a long shot due to the royal feud.

Finding Freedom reports that although Harry and Meghan gave a standing invitation to Prince William and Kate Middleton to visit their home in the countryside, they never did. On top of the Cambridges failing to take the time to visit, Harry also apparently felt like they needed a break from each other. “Everywhere you turn, you’re surrounded by staff and family,” a source said. “He was at a point in his life where he was working with his brother, doing the foundation with his brother, and living by his brother. It was too much.”

Well, Harry definitely has space now. Hopefully, the family can work on mending their relationship and Archie and his cousins can be friends in the future.
