Kate Middleton had a pretty relaxed holiday with her kids and Prince William at Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham estate this year, and it seems she wants to keep that cozy family vibe going in 2020. According to sources, she’s hoping she gets to see more of the Sussexes and is really crossing her fingers that her kids get to spend quality time with Baby Archie in particular.
A source told Us Weekly that Middleton is “hoping that in the new year, the cousins will spend more time together” and noted that her kids—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—” adore” Baby Archie. The source notes that “like most children, they’re easily distracted and resilient,” so they might not be too upset that they didn’t see the seven-month-old baby at Christmas since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry decided to take their firstborn to Canada to unplug for a few weeks.
But if the source is right, Middleton could be pushing for a kid-filled reunion in the coming months. Prince Louis seems especially fond of the baby: A few cute photos taken at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Match show him wearing sunglasses and looking up happily at his tiny cousin.
It’s been a bit of a rare sight to see all of the family gathered in one place lately. On rumors that Prince Harry and Prince William are feuding, Harry said, “Inevitably, stuff happens. But we’re brothers; we’ll always be brothers.”
The Sussex couple then decided to take a bit of a break from public life to reset and hang out as a family. They rented a house with Markle’s mother Doria Ragland for Christmas on Vancouver Island and have been keeping things pretty low-key. Still, they’re due back in the U.K. soon, which hopefully for Kate Middleton means some adorable family time.
