Kate Middleton and Prince William posted birthday wishes for Meghan Markle on their Instagram stories. Meghan Markle marked her 41st birthday this year. The same benediction was tweeted by the couple on their joint Twitter account.
They simply wrote “Wishing a happy birthday to the Duchess of Sussex!” beside a picture of the Suits actress taken at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee festivities in June.
The Duchess of Sussex’s birthday was celebrated on Twitter by Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, who tweeted, “Happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex!” and posted a picture from the same day of celebration.
The image of Markle that the royal family used in their greetings to her was taken from the same occasion, the Queen’s Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral, when she made her first appearance at a royal event with her husband Prince Harry at her side since the couple’s departure from the royal family in 2020.
The pair made a statement at the National Service of Thanksgiving event when they reconnected with the royal family and were clearly sitting across from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Rather, the pair sat next to Harry’s cousins, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, together with their spouses Jack Brooksbank and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. According to the sources, Meghan did not speak to Kate Middleton or Prince William once throughout the celebration.
As the public continues to have conflicting views about Harry and Meghan and their choice to quit the royal family and their official obligations, their attendance at the event did raise some eyebrows.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not appear to re-establish contact with Prince William and Duchess Kate Thanksgiving event.
The Cambridge couple, however, did not enter the church with the co-founders of Archewell on Friday. According to a source quoted by an insider, “senior members of the royal family were seated in the front row and non-ranking members placed in the second row.” These two couples were scrutinised at the 2020 Commonwealth Day Service, and the palace made the decision to keep them on opposite sides of the church to avoid any unwanted conspiracy,” according to the insider.
