Meghan Markle’s Son Not in the Newly Released Portrait of Queen Elizabeth’s Great-Grandchildren – Why?

On Wednesday, the royal family released a previously unseen portrait of Queen Elizabeth and the late Prince Philips along with seven of their great-grandchildren.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Mia Tindall, Lena Tindall, Savannah Phillips and Isla Phillips joined their great-grandmother and great-grandfather for the photo at Balmoral Castle.

However, three of the monarch’s great-grandsons, Archie Harrison, August Brooksbank and Lucas Tindall are noticeably missing from the picture as they weren’t born when the portrait was taken.

The picture was taken by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, back in 2018. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex tied knots with Meghan Markle in 2018 and did not welcome their first child, Archie, until 2019.

Moreover, August and Lucas were born earlier this year. Her Majesty currently has another grandchild on the way. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their second child, a girl, this summer.

The portrait of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh surrounded by seven of their great-grandchildren was released five days after Prince Philip’s death.

The caption on Instagram read, “Today we share, along with Members of @theroyalfamily, photographs of The Duke of Edinburgh, remembering him as a father, grandfather and great-grandfather.”
