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.

Last month, royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET thata possible fall tour of the U.S. and Canada for Meghan, Harry and their new baby was in the “very early” stages of planning. Watch the video below for more:
