The royal members want the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to be back home for Christmas

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are urged to join the family for Christmas celebrations

Christmas time is a time for family and Royal family members are no different. They gathered together for Christmas celebration. However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are missing from the family celebration as the couple is currently vacationing in Canada with their 1-year-old son, Prince Archie.

Reportedly, the royal family asked the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to return home for Christmas and join them for celebration. Especially considering the fact that 98-year-old Prince Philip recently spent his fourth night in the hospital.

As per reports, a source said that the couple received entitlement to have their privacy and a proper break. But they had an off for 6 weeks. So now they could have some family time, some family photos and memories with baby Archie. The couple flew to Canada last month for a long vacation. The source reveals that royals were at a loss that the couple had to miss Christmas with the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.

Many of the family members were keen to see baby Archie over Christmas but that was not possible as the couple is abroad. The couple could not attend the Queen’s pre christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. Moreover, they won’t be present for the traditional royal family gathering at the Queen’s private Sandringham estate on Christmas day.

People are clueless as to why Prince Harry would want to miss Christmas which could be his grandfather Prince Philip’s last Christmas. Prince Philips has been hospitalized since Friday following a period of poor health. He battled a flu-like illness for weeks, suffering a bad fall before being admitted to the hospital.
