Although there no big celebrations held, Prince Harry managed to make her day special. According to some reports, they went on a long drive after attending all the wedding nuptials.

But as it turns out, the date is a significant one for more than just the happy couple.

And that is because Harry’s great-grandmother, the Queen’s Mother, was also born in the same month as Meghan. The Queen Mother, who was born Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon, was born on the 4th of August in 1900.

Queen Elizabeth, the Prince of Wales Charles and Prince William no doubt remembered the figurehead. And they also offered their well-wishes to one of the newest members of the family.

But, this is not all.

According to some recent reports, Her Majesty was missing her mother very much. And so, the Queen even wrote an emotional message for the Queen Mother on her special day.
