Meghan Markle — the Suits actress, former blogger, and newly-minted Duchess of Sussex — turned 37 today.
This is an important day because, you know, all birthdays are important. It also just so happens to be Markle’s first official birthday as a royal.
To mark the occasion, social media accounts for the royals have been sharing sweet messages for Markle. Kensington Palace, which, according to Elle, represents Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, shared a close-up photo of the Duchess’ face and thanked her fans for their birthday wishes.
The Queen herself also (indirectly) said a public HBD to Markle. Markle and the Queen have reportedly become great pals since Markle’s entrance to the royal family.
So, unsurprisingly, the royal family social media accounts, which represent Buckingham Palace (aka where the Queen lives), shared an adorable image of Markle and the Queen looking chummy at a ceremony with a caption wishing Markle a happy birthday.
