Why didn't Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's children, Archie and Lilibet, attend Queen Elizabeth's funeral? The answer is fairly simple ...

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex put on a united front with the rest of the royal family as they attended the late Queen Elizabeth's funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19th.

However, the couple opted not to bring their two children to the service for Her Majesty, who passed away at the age of 96. And the reason they decided to keep their brood at their Montecito home in California rather than have them attend their great-grandmother's funeral is simply ... because of their age!

With their son Archie being three and their daughter Lili only one year old, they are too young to attend and understand royal events, especially those as solemn as the Queen's passing.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate Middleton, also decided to leave their youngest son, Prince Louis, at home while their two eldest children, Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, were in attendance. Check out the photo of the young Royals below.
