As far as we know the Sussexes will be celebrating Meghan’s special day in private, where she’ll be spoiled and pampered by her husband Prince Harry and their two adorable children, Archie and Lilibet, who just recently turned one in June.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become known for their prioritizing of privacy, as such they usually mark these special occasions at their California home in Montecito, Santa Barbara, out of the public eye.
The Sussexes did, however, share one photo from their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday from their backyard party in their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, taken while they were in the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The photo was the first official portrait we got of Lilibet, showing the little girl on the grass, smiling at the camera.
For her milestone 40th birthday last year, Markle launched 40×40, a project encouraging people around the globe to devote 40 minutes of their time to support women going back to work, calling 40 skilled activists, athletes, artist and leaders to commit 40 minutes to mentor women entering the workforce.
The project was launched by a home video of Meghan featuring Melissa McCarthy, later photobombed by Prince Harry. The project later included Princess Eugenie, singer Adele, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, Stella McCartney and Amanda Gorman.
