Meghan Markle and Prince Harry video call The Queen for her birthday alongside son Archie

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a private phone call with the Queen to wish her a happy birthday alongside their son Archie on Tuesday.

Her Majesty celebrated her 94th birthday this week in lockdown at Windsor Castle, and with her grandson now living in America with his family, a virtual celebration took place instead.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are currently living in Los Angeles, enjoyed a chat with the monarch online as they also brought Archie, who turns one in a fortnight, onto the call.

It comes after Kate Middleton and Prince William took to social media to honour Her Majesty with an old photo of them all together.

Prince William and his wife took to the Kensington Palace Twitter account to share a photo of them with the Queen at the Chelsea Flower Show last year to mark her special day.

The post read: “Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 94th Birthday today!,” followed by a cake and balloon emoji.

Clarence House also shared a message from the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall for the birthday of Charles’ mother, reading: “Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very Happy 94th Birthday.”

It comes after the Queen’s usual birthday plans were scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A royal source revealed that the traditional royal gun salute would be “inappropriate” due to the current crisis and she will instead celebrate by having private video calls with family members.

Trooping the Colour, which is usually held in mid-June to mark the official celebration of Her Majesty’s birthday, has also been cancelled.

As well as the Queen, Kate and William’s son and daughter, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte, are also due to celebrate birthdays while in lockdown.

The Queen is said to be keen to ensure little Louis, who turns two on April 23, and Charlotte, who will be five on May 2, still have fun on their big days.
