It’s been a busy few weeks for the royal family — from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping away for good to Prince Philip being in the hospital — and Queen Elizabeth II is trying to adjust to the obstacles in her way.
“The situation with Harry and Meghan has been challenging, and on top of that, she’s distraught over her beloved husband’s health setback,” a source revealed about the monarch.
“The queen has had some tearful moments mixed with anger and disappointment,” another insider admitted. “Emotions are definitely running high.”
Ever since Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, moved to California, the 94-year-old has not been able to bond with Archie as much as she would like to. Additionally, now that the couple is expecting baby No. 2, the Queen won’t be able to spend time with the tot since they live so far away.
"The family will be over the moon for Harry and Meghan," royal expert Katie Nicholl shared. "It will be a real moment to celebrate. It's just tinged with sadness that they won't get to see this grandchild as much as they might like."
"The Queen adores her family and is happiest when she's surrounded by them," she added.
Meanwhile, Philip, 99, has been in the hospital since last week as he’s fighting an “infection” but he seems to be on the mend. Philip is “comfortable and responding to treatment but is not expected to leave [the] hospital for several days,” the palace said in a statement.
Prince Edward also updated the public on how his father has been doing.
"As far as I'm aware, well I did speak to him the other day, so he's a lot better thank you very much indeed, and he's looking forward to getting out, which is the most positive thing,” Edward said. "So we keep our fingers crossed."
