The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, turns 39 in Los Angeles today.
And to commemorate the grand occasion, the Queen of England and other royals expressed heartfelt tributes.
The Queen, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, all took to social media to post their greetings.
Similarly, the Royal Family’s official Instagram account also posted a picture this morning. And it featured the Queen of England, 94, alongside Meghan Markle. The photograph was commemorating the Duchess of Sussex’s first-ever joint royal gathering that took place two years ago.
The picture’s caption stated: “We wish the Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!”
Soon, posts from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate’s Kennsington Palace Instagram account also made similar posts. And this was followed by posts by the Clarence House account, which is run by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall’s household staff.
Surprisingly, all the messages come at a very critical point in time. And that’s because of the royal family reels from the claims made in the Duchess of Sussex’s biography titled Finding Freedom. The famous autobiography will make it’s grand release next week.
Many are terming the book ‘a surprise’ as it reveals the rift between the couple and other senior members of the Royals.
Written by Omid Scobie as well as Carolyn Durant, the book also covers the details of the bitterness between both the Cambridges and the Sussexes. And that is believed to be the major reason why both William and Kate didn’t communicate with the couple after they hung up their HRH titles.
The book also goes on to make shocking revelations of how the queen wasn’t informed beforehand about Harry and Meghan’s decision to exit the United Kingdom and settle in the USA.
And that is why the fear keeps growing that the published book will further create fresh rifts amongst the Firm.
On the other hand, today’s warm birthday posts clearly signal that the Queen and other royals are willing to make a change. It seems as if they’re ready to squash damage to their public image by portraying a more united front.
