Queen Elizabeth's "worst fear" is not seeing her great grandson again, a source told US Weekly .

Her Majesty is said to be "heartbroken" and fears she is missing key milestones in the life of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the first son of her grandson Prince Harry and Meghan.

The source told the magazine: "[The Queen is] heartbroken over the thought of not getting to see her great-grandson…The queen would love to have a relationship with Archie, but it’s looking unlikely that will ever happen.

“The queen’s worst fear is that she may never see Archie again.

“She’s trying to stay optimistic about this situation and would never stoop to casting any aspersions on Meghan’s character – even after everything that’s happened.”

Archie, now 10-months-old, has been living in Canada since Harry and Meghan's bombshell decision to quit royal life and split their time between their and the UK.

The source is reported as saying that Prince William and Kate also crave a relationship with their nephew.

And while they respect Harry and Meghan have a lot on their plate, the source claims the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge feel family should come first.

Meghan and Harry have left Archie in Canada while they return to the UK to carry out their final engagements before 'Megxit' on March 31.

They have a number of engagements over the weekend, with their last event taking place on Monday.

They will join the Queen, Prince Charles, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and other members of the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.

The Queen's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter branded the couple "spiteful" for not bringing Archie back with them, saying there is "no excuse" as the Queen and Prince Philip "won't be here much longer".

He says the couple should consider that Queen and Prince Philip "won't be here much longer", but they haven't seen little Archie since last year

Speaking to Nine News Australia , Dickie said: "It would be a great pity if he's not brought over. He's not seen his great-grandparents or his granddad since last year.

"There's always the excuse 'well he's too young to fly' – babies fly all the time, they flew Archie down to Southern Africa in October for that visit, so it wasn't too far to take him there, so I believe that they should bring him.

"I'm sorry, there isn't an excuse for not bringing him. After all, he's got to meet his family, his family are not going to get a chance to see him for quite some time, because Harry and Meghan are going to be in Canada or the United States."

The Queen will be 94 in April and Philip turns 99 in June.

Meghan and Harry are said to be excited about their future in Canada, especially setting up their new non-profit organisation in the spring.

Last week, Harry spoke at a travel event in Edinburgh and joined rockstar Jon Bon Jovi as he recorded a new version of his hit track Unbroken in aid of Invictus Games Foundation at the famous Abbey Road Studios.

Their last official engagement as senior royals with be next week when they join other members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey for the Commonwealth Day Service.

It will be the first time we've seen Meghan and Harry with other royals since Megxit was announced.

More than 2,000 people have been invited to the event, which will be shown on BBC One, including Prime Minister  Boris Johnson  , who this weekend revealed he is engaged to girlfriend Carrie Symonds and they are expecting their first child.
