MEGHAN MARKLE’S BIRTHDAY FALLS ON AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT DATE FOR THE QUEEN
There is no doubt Meghan’s day will be spent well, surrounded by friends and her family.
But as well as it being Meghan’s birthday today, it is also an incredibly important date for The Queen.
Today is also the birthday of her beloved late mum, The Queen Mother. She was born on the 4 August in 1900.
She married Prince Albert, who later became King George VI in 1923. They had two daughters together, The Queen and Princess Margaret.
Sadly, the Queen Mother died in March 2002 aged 101. Today is the 121st anniversary of her birth.

‘PERPETUATING FALSEHOODS’ (CONTINUED…)
During the Oprah chat in March this year, Meghan appeared to suggest the Firm were involved in a secret briefing war against her.
The chat show host asked: “How do you feel about the palace hearing you speak your truth today?”
And Meg replied: “I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us.
“And, if that comes with a risk of losing things, I mean, I … there is a lot that has been lost already.”
HOW THE DUCHESS HAS UPSET ROYAL FAMILY AS SHE TURNS 40 TODAY

Since meeting Harry in 2016, and being welcomed into the royal fold, she’s since had a huge impact on the royals. Her journey into the heart of the Firm hasn’t always been a smooth one.
In 2018, the year Meghan and Harry were wed, it was reported she’d sent emails to staff as early as 5am.
A royal insider said: “Meghan can be difficult… She has very high standards and is used to working in a Hollywood environment.”

The duchess may also take some time to look back over the past year – something she always does on an annual basis.
Before she became a royal, Meghan shared pictures on Instagram of herself enjoying celebratory cakes and blowing out candles. On her birthday in 2019 she was treated, according to Marie Claire, to a delivery from London-based Luminary Bakery.

The tweet was accompanied by adorable pictures of Meghan with husband Harry, the Queen and son Archie.
‘IN HIGH DEMAND’ (CONTINUED…)
It is not yet known whether Harry and Meg, who gave birth to the couple’s second child, daughter Lilibet, in June, will attend.

She’ll be joined by family and friends for her milestone birthday at her and Prince Harry’s £11million mansion in Santa Barbara, California.
Supposedly ‘low key’, she’ll be hosting for 65 people. The Duchess of Sussex has also made sure her party will not break Covid rules.
Big-name celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Tom Cruise and Kim Kardashian are set to be on the guest list.
LET’S FLY AWAY HONEY
It has been speculated that Harry will be whisking Meg away for her 40th this year, but any solid plans remain as deliberation. In recent years, he’s made huge efforts for The Dutchess’ birthday.
For Meghan’s 36th birthday, Harry and her were still not married. However, he still whisked her away to Botswana in Africa, where they worked with an elephant charity.
Meghan’s 37th birthday – her first as a member of the royal family – saw her attend a friend’s wedding in Surrey.
Meghan’s first birthday as a mum was her 38th. After giving birth to Archie, the couple celebrated with carrot cake at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. Days later, the family flew to Ibiza.
Last year was the quietest birthday of all. Amid the Covid pandemic, she celebrated her 39th at home.
A GIFT, FROM ME TO YOU
Although Meghan Markle is keeping things low-key for her birthday this year, she has continued her charitable endeavors.
Even while keeping away from the limelight since giving birth to Lilibet, Meghan and Harry donated a generous amount of nappies to a Los Angeles-based organization. Harvest Home helps support unhoused mothers and their children.
In a heartwarming post, the organisation wrote: “we could not be more thankful to Archewell Foundation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex… for the incredible donation”.
LETS HAVE OUR CAKE
Prince Harry has pulled out all the stops and ordered a bespoke birthday cake for Meghan Markle’s 40th.
The posh bakery can charge anywhere from £160 plus for cakes, with their spciality being ‘naked’ cakes where some of the cake’s layers are visible underneath the icing.
Before the showstopper will make its appearance, it’s reported that guests will enjoy “grazing tables” with locally sourced foods and wines.
The guest list for her birthday has yet to be fully revealed, but it is expected that her mum Doria and close pal Oprah will be there.
We’re keeping our eyes peeled to see how the day unfolds…
