This is how the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, will spend her first royal birthday.


Meghan has a lot on her plate right now. But, will it be put aside for one day which will also be her birthday? The Duchess of Sussex will turn 37 next week. 

The new bride is coming up on another milestone: Her first birthday as a royal!

Considering that Prince George spent his fifth birthday on a private island, you might expect the newly married to have big and extravagant plans for her 37th.

Well, this is not going to be the case at least this time. 

Meghan Markle will spend her first birthday as a member of the royal family being a responsible adult and a good partner. She will be accompanying Prince Harry to a wedding as his plus one.

According to some recent reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will spend August 4 at the wedding of Harry’s childhood friend, Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks.

Their strong friendship goes way back when Prince Harry was just a cute kid.

Harry and Charlie have been friends since they attended Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire together as children. In fact, Charlie even asked Harry to serve as his best man.

Charlie and his older brother, Thomas van Straubenzee, were also reportedly part of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding party in May. 

Harry’s commitment to Charlie’s wedding happens to fall on August 4, the same day Meghan will turn 37.

Royal photographer, Tim Rooke revealed that the wedding coincides with Meghan’s birthday and that he will not be shooting the one event.

The royal couple, who celebrated Meghan’s 36th birthday in Africa, will certainly do something special another day. But, even if they don’t, at least Meghan will get to eat cake on her birthday.
