Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have accepted an invitation from the Queen to join her at Balmoral this summer, it has been reported - and they could bring Archie along for the first time.
Archie Mountbatten-Windsor - who turns one in May - could be making his first trip to the Queen's Scottish retreat after Harry and Meghan turned down the invitation last year.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also expected to spend time with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at Birkhall, Charles's retreat on the Balmoral estate, according to Roya Nikkhah writing in The Sunday Times.
However, Baby Archie may accompany his parents to Britain in June when they attend trooping the colour.
His absence from his birth country and his wider family is understood to have left the Queen feeling 'very sad'.
Archie remained in Canada last week with the Sussexes' nanny and Meghan's friend Jessica Mulroney while Harry and Meghan completed their final official engagements in the UK.
Last September the Queen was said to have been 'disappointed' when the Sussexes turned down her invitation to Balmoral.
At the time sources close to the couple insisted that the decision should not be seen as a 'snub'.
The family were 'too busy' – and four-month-old Archie 'too young' – to make the trip, according to their spokeswoman, a decision viewed by some as puzzling.

My view: They have no choice, but to accept the invitation, as their popularity is dwindling and because of the millions of negative comments they get on their own Instagram account. Also Meghan knows that without the royal platform to promote her selfish self, she's absolutely irrelevant.The same couple that declined the Queen's invitation last Christmas.
