EVER since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed baby Archie almost three weeks ago, they’ve been introducing the new royal to friends and family.
And now, according to a US source, the Duchess is keen to travel to Los Angeles with her son so he can learn more about her side of the family.

From the Queen and Prince Philip, to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan‘s best friend Jessica Mulroney – who is believed to be visiting this week – Archie has been meeting lots of new faces over the last fortnight.
But according to an insider speaking to a US publication, 37-year-old Meghan would like Archie to visit the States as soon as possible, now that mum Doria Ragland has returned to LA.
“For Meghan, it’s just as important for Archie to learn about her family history as it is for him to learn about his royal ancestors,” an insider told US Weekly.
“She plans to go on a trip to LA with him once she’s comfortable taking him on a plane.”

Last year, royal expert Katie Nicholl revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were planning to make a journey to the States in Autumn 2019 with Archie.
However, Meghan and Harry have not yet announced any plans for a formal US trip and in April, Vanity Fair reported that the couple have now postponed the tour entirely as they’re “anxious” about travelling with their little one.

All the places Prince Harry has been since Meghan gave birth
The Duchess of Sussex gave birth almost three weeks ago, but it’s been business as usual for Prince Harry – despite reports he would be taking paternity leave.
- May 9: Just three days after Archie was born, Harry travelled to the Netherlands to attend the official launch of The Invictus Games The Hague 2020. The prince had initially been scheduled to travel to the nation for a two day visit, however, it was shortened to just one day.
- May 14: Prince Harry made an emotional trip to Oxford where he met poorly children, parents and staff at Oxford Children’s Hospital. Afterwards, the Duke re-opened the OXSRAD Disability Sports and Leisure Centre, a facility first opened by Diana in 1989. He then arrived at Barton Neighbourhood Centre to see the work of Thrive Teams, an initiative that supports at risk youth with access to education and employment.
- May 18: Harry takes a break from dad duties to attend the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston – almost a year to the day since he tied the knot at the same venue. The Duke of Sussex, who was without Meghan, arrived at the ceremony with Peep Show actress Sophie Winkleman, who is married to Lord Frederick Windsor, along with his uncle Prince Edward and aunt Princess Anne.
- May 23: The royal travelled to Rome yesterday morning to take part in the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup this afternoon.The charity match will help raise funds and awareness for Sentebale, which supports thousands of youth affected by HIV in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi. Prince Harry is a patron of the charity, which was founded by The Duke and Prince Seeiso in 2006 to help protect young people and children in southern Africa.
The source said: “As it stands, the Duchess of Sussex won’t be going away on an official overseas tour this year.
“That’s the word out of the Palace, although things might change. Right now we have been told that there won’t be any overseas travel before the end of the year because Baby Sussex will be too young.”
While details of the tour have been kept firmly under wraps, it is understood that the couple were planning on visiting both Meghan’s former Californian and Toronto homes from when she was starring in Suits.
