Though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's California-based kids will grow up far away from their relatives in the U.K., royal expert Ingrid Seward believes that one day, they'll form a friendship with Prince William and Duchess Kate's three children.
"I am sure Diana would have wanted her sons' offspring to be friends as she would have known how difficult it is to form friendships outside the family as people cannot be trusted not to let some indiscretion slip out," the author explained to the Daily Express. "They may be friends with Archie when they are older."
"How cool to have a Californian cousin who is going to be such a dude as Archie," Seward noted. "So exciting for them to go and stay with him too and vice versa."
Aside from Archie, who turns 2 on May 6, the pregnant actress is due to give birth to their daughter this summer. William and Kate are parents to Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.
"So they may not have the childhood bond, which they really don’t need as they have lots of little friends," she concluded of the next generation, "but they will really appreciate Archie later on in their lives."
Though William and younger brother Harry were close during their childhood, their relationship took a hit when the latter stepped down from the royal family.
The two played nice at Prince Philip's April 17 funeral, but sources claimed the rift is far from being healed.

"They made some progress," an insider told Us Weekly. "But they definitely haven’t reached the stage where all is forgiven nor have they buried the hatchet."
Meanwhile, Harry's relationship with his father, Prince Charles, seems to be at a standstill, as the latter is still fuming about "Harry throwing shade at him and the royal family in the big interview and won’t let it drop," claimed a source.

"Unfortunately, Harry and Charles didn’t resolve their differences when Harry returned to the U.K. They barely communicated," the source noted. "There definitely continues to be a huge wedge between the two."
