The monarchy is a complicated affair. The present monarch, Queen Elizabeth II has reigned since 1952 and she's the longest-reigning British Monarch ever. Her eldest son Charles will succeed her on the throne eventually but he'll have to wait until his mother abdicates or dies first as there are other ways for someone else in the line of succession to ascend if they're older than him such as when King Edward VII died before Princess Mary ascended because their grandfather was still alive.
In an emotional interview with Oprah Winfrey, the happy couple revealed that they have been estranged from his family since at least 2020. The disagreement between Harry and Meghan included how there were conversations about "how dark" Archie's skin color would be when she was pregnant."
In a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, the couple detailed some of their disagreements with his family - including discussions over how 'dark' her son Archie will look as he grows up.
Prince Harry returned to the United Kingdom in April following his grandfather's death. The family was reported to have a difficult time, with Meghan staying behind for medical advice while Prince Philip passed away on April 9 at age 99-years old. Now another baby is coming! Princess Beatrice announced that she and her husband are expecting their first child together this year—and they're also cousins of Queen Elizabeth II herself!
