Aaaaaw! Her Majesty The Queen Celebrates Meghan Markle On Her Birthday With A Sweet Snap

Date August 6, 2018 14:32

On Saturday, August 4, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex celebrated her first ever birthday as a member of the royal family. Kensington Palace shared this tweet thanking everyone who commemorated the special day. The Duchess just turned 37.

Sadly, there was no birthday celebration as the royal couple already had plans for the day. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the wedding of Charlie van Straubenzee, a childhood friend to Prince Harry. Hello! reports that the wedding took place in the village of Frensham in Surrey and the ever-stylish Duchess wore a color-blocked pastel midi dress by Canadian fashion label Club Monaco.

We still expect that the Royals had some kind of celebration, but neither the Duke nor Duchess has shared any information in that regard. Meanwhile, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had a special present of her own for the newly minted Duchess. The Queen's official Instagram account shared this delightful picture taken during their first official trip.

We don't expect Her Majesty spent time squinting through dozens of pictures to pick the perfect one. Of course, she has people who do that. But she must have approved the final photo and that does take a lot of thought.

Not everybody gets to have the Queen herself send a birthday message, talk more of an Instagram post. Clearly, Her Majesty thinks highly of the Duchess of Sussex. Many commentators have suggested that the royals are cultivating a warm relationship and this birthday message is all proof.

Fans of the Duchess are joining in the throng and sending in their own wishes. We can imagine the royal mail getting flooded with presents. As for what she got from Prince Harry, only time will tell.

Here is wishing the Duchess of Sussex all the best in her new year.
