A royal source said the Duchess of Sussex is “too busy” to worry that she won’t be able to travel to Scotland for the royal gathering with her husband’s family. But Prince Harry is said to be frustrated he cannot travel from LA to the UK to spend the Summer with the Queen and Prince Philip due to coronavirus pandemic.
A source told In Touch Weekly: “She doesn’t feel like she’s missing out.
“She’s been too busy decorating their new Montecito mansion.”
The Queen and her husband had been self isolating in Windsor amid the coronavirus pandemic but travelled to Balmoral after shielding guidance for the over-70s was relaxed.
The 94-year-old monarch has welcomed several Royal Family members for visits to Balmoral this year but it is understood all encounters have been socially distanced.
The first family members to visit the Queen in Scotland were Prince Edward, Sophie, Countess of Wessex and their two children – Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, 12.
They were reportedly joined by Prince William, Kate and their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis this weekend.
The Cambridges’ visit took place ahead of Prince George and Charlotte’s return to school this week.
Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are also expected to visit.
However Meghan, Prince Harry and their son Archie Harrison are expected stay in LA due to coronavirus restrictions.
Travellers from the US are required to quarantine for 14 days in the UK after arrival.
While the US has warned people visiting the UK in the past 14 days may not be allowed to enter.
Meghan and Harry’s only son Archie Harrison turned one in May and has not seen the Queen and Prince Philip for many months.
As well as keeping a low public profile recently, Meghan, Harry and Archie have also not seen the Royal Family for many months while living in North America following their sensational exit from the Firm.
It comes after Meghan and Prince Harry failed to attend Balmoral in September last year with their young son.
The Queen was said to have been “hurt and disappointed” when the couple turned down her invite.
For every year of her reign, the Queen has spent up to three months at theRoyal Scottish estate annually.
Typically the Queen and Prince Philip journey up to the 50,000-acre estate in Scotland each year.
Over the course of the few months, she spends at Balmoral, various members of the Royal Family journey up to spend time with her.
However, this year, with the coronavirus crisis still impacting normal life, her annual pilgrimage will be different from normal.

“All arrangements will be in line with the relevant guidelines and advice.”
