July 30, 2018 17:34 By Fabiosa
Former model and actress, who was introduced to the worldwide audience as Rachel Zane in Suits and as Duchess of Sussex through marriage, Meghan Markle, will turn 37 on the 4th of August.
This will be Meghan’s first birthday as the member of the royal family, so it must be celebrated in a special way. And, according to the royal photographer, Tim Rooke, it surely will be!
A date to remember
Meghan’s first birthday as a royal will be spent in the most royal way possible – at the wedding of one of her husband’s dearest friends – Charlie van Straubenzee.
Tim Rooke accidentally confirmed the news with a tweet, saying he won’t be able to attend the event.
Unfortunately I will be missing the wedding of Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks where Prince Harry will be best man on August 4th in Churt Surrey as I will be on the beach .Can't do everything!— Rookie (@royalfocus1) July 27, 2018
In the early summer, it was confirmed that Prince Harry will play an important role at his friend’s wedding – the role of his best man. The two became close in their childhood, during their years at Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire. But until now, it hasn't been announced that Charlie's wedding will fall on the Duchess of Sussex’s birthday.
The Van Straubenzees are close to the royal family. In fact, Charlie’s brother, Thomas, was one of William’s best mans and is Princess Charlotte’s godfather.— Tea Time With The Cambridges (@TeaCambridges) July 29, 2018

Charlie and Harry stayed friends throughout the years, often appearing at events together. It is believed van Straubenzee was one of the ushers at Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May. So it’s only fair the Duke should respond in kind.
Last year, the romantic Prince treated his beloved with something very memorable. He decided to take her to a place very special to his heart – to Botswana, Africa.
The couple’s getaway took place in a tent camp, which offered the lovebirds lots of privacy. Meghan and Harry enjoyed hiking and stunning views.
We can be sure that Prince Harry will have something special planned for this year’s birthday as well. Maybe he’ll whisk his lady away to Paris after the wedding? We will have to wait and see.
