American fans of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are puzzled as to why they chose to hide their children, Archie and Lilibet.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, son Archie in 2019 and two years later their daughter Lilibet was born.

Since their birth, the two children have rarely been seen and this has led royal fans, especially fans in the United States, to wonder why the couple chose to hide their children from the public eye.

Speaking on the latest episode of Royally Us, host Christina Garibaldi said: “They’re [Harry and Meghan] very protective of their children, which I completely understand, but if you want to give us a little, shouldn’t you give us a little”.

Public relations expert Lida Citreon said: “This is where it’s at, you know, you can’t open the box a bit”.

Ms Citreon added: “It’s really tricky, it’s tricky for business people, it’s tricky for celebrities, because authenticity doesn’t mean the same thing as transparency.

“When you give an answer to be authentic, it means you are authentic, you speak the truth, you speak from the heart, it does not mean that I have to tell you everything about me, but to keep your children, something that we attach to a part of your identity, privacy seems strange.”
