Meghan will celebrate her milestone birthday in private with Prince Harry, their two-month-old Lilibet and Archie. Meghan Markle is waking up to 40th birthday wishes from the royal family.
On Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth, Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess, of Cornwall shared celebratory words.
The Royal Family Twitter account (representing Queen Elizabeth and Buckingham Palace) featured three photos of the Duchess of Sussex — including her 2018 outing to Cheshire alongside the Queen, 95. A shot of her with Prince Harry, 36, and their son Archie, during their South Africa tour in 2019, was also included.
William and Kate, who will celebrate their 40th birthdays next spring, sent their own birthday tweets featuring a photo of the Duchess and Sussex taken during their 2018 tour of Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.
Meanwhile, Meghan’s father-in-law Prince Charles and his wife Camilla chose a close-up portrait of the Duchess of to pass along their good wishes for the day.
Meghan’s birthday marks the close of a year that Harry and Meghan have lived in Montecito in California, where they raised Archie, now 2, as well as Lilibet Diana, who was conceived in June. The couple has spent the summer on family vacation, punctuated by Harry’s book deal, and Meghan’s animated Netflix series, Pearl.
