Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Video Call Queen for Her Birthday — with an Appearance by Archie!

Queen Elizabeth scaled down her birthday celebrations this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The monarch has requested that there be no special gun salutes to mark her birthday, which is usually celebrated with army cannons being fired in some of the Royal Parks in central London and elsewhere. It is thought that it’s the first time in her reign that the salutes have not taken place.

However, her family members made sure to pay tribute to the Queen’s birthday on social media. Prince William, 37, and Kate Middleton, 38, chose a photo of them all together at the Chelsea Flower Show last May.

“Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 94th birthday today!” the royal couple captioned the post on their Kensington Royal Instagram page, complete with a birthday cake and red balloon emojis.

Prince Charles, 71, paid tribute to his mother on social media with a mix of old and new photos, including a black-and-white photo that shows Queen Elizabeth smile at her young son as he sits in a playpen.
