Meghan Markle turned 37 yesterday, August 4, marking her first birthday as a royal with her new official title the Duchess of Sussex.
To pay tribute and show public support for their new family member, the social media accounts for the royals posted sweet messages to Markle, wishing her well wishes on her special day.
The first posting came from the Kensingtion Palace accounts, who according to Elle represent Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. To their Twitter and Instagram accounts they shared a photo thanking the public for the plethora of birthday messages the Duchess of Sussex has received.
“Thank you everyone for your lovely messages on The Duchess of Sussex’s birthday! #HappyBirthdayHRH,” the offical Instagram account captioned the photo, alongside a photo of Markle at a previous event.
The Royal Family social media accounts, who represent Buckingham Palace, including Queen Elizabeth II, similarly posted a photo to their profile to mark the occasion and send their own special message to Markle.
“Happy Birthday to HRH The Duchess of Sussex! #HappyBirthdayHRH,” the Royal Family captioned this photo.
For this message, they chose a now-iconic picture of Meghan Markle sitting next to Queen Elizabeth II at a ceremony, looking very happy in each other’s company.
