Looks like Prince Harry has a soft spot for fellow redheads.
The 34-year-old royal and his wife, Meghan Markle, greeted fans at Hamilton Square during an official visit to Birkenhead, England, on Monday, when one adorable redheaded well-wisher caught his eye with a clever sign. The sign read "#Gingers Unite -- I love you Harry," and the Duke of Sussex was clearly delighted by the message, signaling her out in the crowd to give her a hug.
The girl has since been identified as 4-year-old Eliza Morris. According to reporter Rebecca English, Harry told her, “I love this! Do you love your hair? The sign is amazing!”

Harry and Meghan are visiting Birkenhead for a day of events, including a visit to Hamilton Square, where they saw a new sculpture honoring the 100th anniversary of war poet Wilfred Owen’s death. During the outing, pregnant Meghan also shared with a woman that her due date is late April to early May.
