Prince Harry has indicated on Thursday that he very much misses his nephews and niece with his brother Prince William and Kate Middleton, as the former working royal continues to try and find a way to have his children meet his family soon. 

Harry, who is sixth in line in succession for the throne, has indicated to sources that he misses Prince William’s children as one of them, Princess Charlotte, recently celebrated her birthday on May 2 to the happiness of those who were around her at the time, Us Weekly reported. 

“They’re extremely fond of him also. Charlotte will send everyone in the family thoughtful gifts and cards, and at the very least they’ll call as a family to sing happy birthdays and so on,” the source said. 

While the cousins have kept in touch through online means, Prince Harry has been working on getting them and the Queen to meet his own children, Archie and Lilibet, by getting their family enough security so that their safety is ensured upon their return to the U.K.

“Harry has his heart set on returning to the U.K. to see the queen with Meghan, Archie and Lilibet, but that will only happen if the government takes the appropriate measures to protect his family,” the source said. “Harry and Meghan are doing everything they can to make the world a better place and feel it would be wrong to rob their children of the opportunity of getting to know their cousins.”

Meanwhile, Prince William arrived in Manchester to commemorate the victims of the 2017 Manchester Arena attack, getting candid about his own experiences with grieving for a lost family member in front of the Glade of Light memorial, according to the Huffington Post.

“As someone who lives with his own grief, I also know that what often matters most to the bereaved is that those we have lost are not forgotten,” William said. “There is comfort in remembering. In acknowledging that, while taken horribly soon, they lived. They changed our lives. They were loved and they are loved.”

In the past, Prince Harry and William have participated in memorializing their mother Princess Diana, who died in a tragic accident in 1997. Last year, they unveiled a memorial statue in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden to commemorate her 60th birthday. 

“It is why memorials such as the Glade of Light are so important,” William said. “Why Catherine and I so wanted to be amongst you today.”
