Closer Weekly: Queen Elizabeth Calls Great-Grandson Archie 'The Most Adorable Child'
Queen Elizabeth's birthday celebrations reportedly included a call to her great-grandson Archie who's all the way over in Los Angeles.
The British monarch celebrated her 94th birthday on Tuesday. Due to the coronavirus, celebrations were more muted than ever. It also meant that the family couldn't come to visit.
QUEEN ELIZABETH SPEAKS TO ARCHIE
So the Queen took to video calling her relatives, including little Archie, who's only 11 months old. According to a Closer Weekly source, the Queen thinks the tot is "the most adorable child."
In the Queen's eyes, Archie most resembles his father, Harry. The baby boy reportedly reminds the Queen of her grandson as a baby, although she does see mom Markle in Archie, too.
Archie has his own personality as a bubbling baby boy. The source said he got the Queen laughing by appearing to try to talk. He also giggled a lot, and perhaps the best part was when he waved at the end.
HOW THE QUEEN CELEBRATED HER B-DAY
"She can't believe how much he's grown and changed," the source said of the monarch. The Queen reportedly hasn't seen her great-grandson in person since 2019.
For her birthday, the Queen also enjoyed the annual chocolate birthday cake made by her staff. She's currently at home in Windsor Castle with her husband, Prince Philip.
MEGHAN & HARRY MAKE DELIVERIES
As for Markle and Harry, the pair are enjoying mostly quiet times at home with Archie. However, the two are also contributing to COVID-19 relief efforts in collaboration with Project Angel Food.
The couple has delivered food through the non-profit charity in Los Angeles at least twice, starting during the week of Easter. Meghan reportedly wanted to show Harry LA in a new light.
HARRY HAS A LOT OF BONDING TIME
At home, dad Harry enjoys rolling around with his son and almost feels guilty about the amount of time he has to spend with family. He revealed so in a Zoom call with the WellChild charity earlier this month.
Harry noted that while he's getting more family time, there'll always be the unavoidable tasks he has to attend to. He also praised other parents for their strength and said that little Archie was enough to care for.
