Meghan Markle and Prince Harry returned to the UK for the first time since Megxit this week, but notably missing from the family reunion was their nine-month-old son Archie who remained in Canada.
And now a source has told Us Weekly that the Queen is concerned she will miss out on seeing her youngest great-grandson grow up as the couple build a new life in Canada.
The monarch, 93, is said to be ‘heartbroken’ at the thought of not seeing baby Archie regularly, sources told and fears they won’t have a ‘relationship’ as he grows up.
‘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’ the source said.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussexes resigned as senior royals in January in a move to become financially independent from the Queen.
They are currently living in a £10million mansion on Vancouver Island.

Harry and Meghan are currently in the UK as they made their first official public appearance in Britain following the Megxit crisis and preparations to step down as senior royals last night.
But they have left baby Archie at home.
The extra security cost of keeping nine-month-old Archie in Canada without his parents this week could be £50,000.

It is also likely to prove a huge disappointment to the Queen and senior royals, who haven’t seen him for months.
Archie is seventh in line to the throne, but has not spent any ‘meaningful’ time with his grandparents or cousins, according to one royal insider.
Harry and Meghan will fly back to Canada after the Commonwealth Day Service on March 9, and their Buckingham Palace office will close on April 1.
Royal fans on social media were wowed by Meghan’s appearance, with many praising her for her outfit choice and beautiful makeup.
The mother-of-one carried a navy blue £1,742 Stella McCartney clutch bag and finished her outfit with her pair of navy Manolo Blahnik BB pumps.

Royal fans praised the Duchess, who donned a Victoria Beckham dress for the occasion, as ‘glowing’ at the evening event
She swept her hair back into a stylish pony-tail, revealing a set of gold hoop earrings.
The Duchess swapped her usual low key make-up for a stunning glamorous look on Thursday, bold dark eyeshadow, highlighter and a metallic lipstick.
The royal is known for her love of designer brands, and rarely wears the same outfits twice, selecting new outfits from favourite designers such as Givenchy and Victoria Beckham on almost every appearance.
The couple helped to celebrate the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women in their first appearance since they visited Canada House before announcing their step down from royal duties.
The engagement will be the first in three joint engagements the couple will undertake in this week, before they officially step down as senior royals.
