Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son Archie is apparently looking more and more like his father everyday.

Queen Elizabeth reportedly spent her 94th birthday last month on a video chat with the Sussexes, and royal reporter Katie Nicholl wrote for the Sunday Times that the Queen "noted that Archie has his father’s red hair."

Last month, it was reported that Meghan, Harry, and Archie called the Queen from Los Angeles during her birthday, while she and Prince Philip were at Windsor Castle. Nicholl reported that the Queen has only seen Archie a "handful" of times, given the Sussexes' move to North America and the travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"At the moment they are just enjoying watching Archie experience so many milestones," a source told the Sunday Times. "They have spent a lot of time together as a family during the lockdown and it’s been a magical time. Archie is a happy and sweet baby, full of love and joy, and it’s contagious. He is active and pulling himself up on everything with a great determination to walk."

Earlier this month, Meghan and Harry shared a video of Archie for his first birthday, during which Meghan read him a story. The video was shared to the Save With Stories account, where the family is asking people to donate money to local food banks.

Nicholl also recently reported details of Meghan and Harry's second wedding anniversary to Entertainment Tonight, telling the outlet that the couple opted for a quiet day together.

"Well, it is their second wedding anniversary, but coming in the middle of a lockdown as you might expect, it will be a quite quiet affair," Nicholl said. "I'm told it will be a family day. Perhaps a moment for a bit of reflection on what has been a pretty momentous past year. No big gathering. They certainly won't be going out. They can't go out."
