Meghan Markle is celebrating her birthday after quite the year! The Duchess of Sussex rang in her 38th on Sunday, August 4 with some very special well-wishes from her royal family. This is Meghan’s first birthday since welcoming her first child, Archie Harrison, with husband Prince Harry.
Thanks to the @SussexRoyal Instagram account, the world got to see Harry’s adoring birthday note to his wife, as he shared a message on a photo of her smiling while wearing a blue wrap dress. The caption read, “Wishing HRH The Duchess of Sussex a very Happy Birthday 🎂 ‘Happy Birthday to my amazing wife. Thank you for joining me on this adventure!’ - Love, H.”
In honor of Meghan’s birthday, @KensingtonRoyal shared a picture featuring the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (also known as Prince William and Kate Middleton) alongside Prince Charles and an arm-and-arm Meghan and Harry. The caption declared, “Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex today! 🎈”
The official Royal Family account shared, “Happy Birthday to The Duchess of Sussex. 🎂 The Duchess was born on this day in 1981.”
Meghan spent last year’s 37th birthday — her first as a member of the Royal Family — at a wedding of one of Prince Harry’s friends. In 2017, she and Harry reportedly jetted off to Botswana, a place close to Harry’s heart, which he’s referred to as his “second home.” It appears that Meghan’s exact plans this year will remain private, as royal reporter Omid Scobie revealed she was going to celebrate with her family at Frogmore Cottage. Scobie speculated, "The Sussexes have been so busy this year that I can imagine her birthday will simply involve a well-deserved day of rest with a few friends—and, of course, precious moments with Archie.”
