On August 4, 2018, the Meghan will celebrate her first birthday as a member of the royal family.
And while it is her first birthday as a royal, she is already committed to attending an event. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend a wedding.
The Duchess will be spending her special day at the wedding of one of Harry’s closest friends – Charlie van Straubenzee.
According to Hello!, Charlie is getting married and Harry will be his best man.
Van Straubenzee will marry filmmaker Daisy Jenks, with the wedding taking place in Surrey, England. The wedding will take place on August 4, on Meghan’s birthday.
Tim Rooke, a royal photographer, confirmed the news. He tweeted that he won’t be there to snap 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!” he said.
Harry and Charlie met at Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire in the United Kingdom. And since then they have been close friends. It’s believed that Charlie and his brother, Thomas van Straubenzee, were ushers at Harry and Meghan’s wedding. Charlie and Thomas are also close friends with Prince William. Thomas van Straubenzee is one of Princess Charlotte’s godparents.
When it comes to Meghan’s previous birthdays, she used to share her celebrations on her now-deleted Instagram account.
For her 35th birthday she: “Thank you for all the birthday love! Cheers to all of you for sticking with me on all things serious and silly. Let’s have another amazing year. P.S. #adoptdontshop.”
