However, baby Archie was notably missing from the picture and it might be because he wasn’t allowed to appear on the iconic balcony yet.

Too young for the fun?

The Queen, reportedly, considered Meghan and Harry’s son “too young” to join other royals. Royal expert Ingrid Seward believes that it’s likely that it was Her Majesty’s decision to leave the new addition to the royal family at home.

Seward explained:

The Queen, through her private secretary, could easily have said Archie was far too young for the Palace balcony, which indeed he is.

However, the monarch herself took baby Prince Edward onto the balcony during Trooping the Color in 1964. To be fair, Edward was three-month-old at that time.

The expert noted:

Her view would be that it is an event to be enjoyed by children, but no younger than Prince Louis as they must be able to behave properly. The last thing she wants is for millions of TV viewers to witness a childhood tantrum.

Fair enough! So when can we see baby Archie again? It can happen sooner than you might think!
