Meghan Markle’s birthday is this Tuesday, August 4th. A symbolic date for Elizabeth II since it is also the day her mother Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon was born in 1900.
This Tuesday, August 4, Meghan Markle blows out her thirty-ninth candle. Archie’s mother’s first birthday in Los Angeles. Originally she wanted to throw a big party at her friend Oprah Winfrey’s house, an idea that has caused quite a stir as the world is currently facing the Covid-19 epidemic. Meghan Markle finally changed her plans for a much simpler option. According to the Hello! website, she preferred a small gathering with her husband, their son and mother Doria Ragland.
For the British Royal Family, the date of August 4 is doubly symbolic. While Prince Harry celebrates his sweetheart’s birthday on Tuesday, it is also the date of birth of his great-grandmother. Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the late wife of King George VI, was born on 4 August 1900 in Hitchin, United Kingdom. Elizabeth II’s mother died in her sleep on March 30, 2002 at Windsor Castle. Considered the dean of the Royal Family until her death, she also bore the title of Empress of India from 1936 to 1948.
A step towards Meghan
On this anniversary, Elizabeth II has forgotten neither her mother nor Harry’s wife. To keep the bad mouths quiet, she posted a message on his Twitter account. Putting differences aside, she shared a photo of their unique duo engagement, which took place in 2018, one month after her marriage.
The caption on the photo reads: “We wish the Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday. A little tenderness that should put some balm in the heart of Meghan Markle who is currently going through a turbulent period. Prince William’s brother and Kate Middleton’s sister-in-law are once again at the heart of a biography dedicated to their departure from the royal family. New scathing revelations that the former Suits actress would certainly have done well without.
