Meghan Markle’s fortieth birthday will be extremely modest. The actress and her husband Harry are still on parental leave after the birth of their daughter Lilibet in June.
The couple will be celebrating at their home in Montecito with the children. According to the reports, “it will be calm, especially in the worsening COVID-19 situation.”
Meghan also does not plan to invite his closest friends who live in the United States to dinner. It goes, among others for her college friend Lindsay Roth, actresses Janina Gavankar and Abigail Spencer, TV director Silver Tree and makeup artist Daniel Martin. They all backed Meghan when Buckingham Palace staff accused Meghan of mobbing earlier this year.
Interestingly, on August 4, Barack Obama will celebrate 60 years. At the weekend, there will be a big celebration at his home on the Atlantic island of Martha’s Vineyard. However, the Sussexs are not planning to attend the party.
How did Meghan spend her birthday in previous years? Three years ago, she had fun at the wedding of her friend Charlie van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks in Surrey. The 38th birthday – the first after Archie’s son was born – was very private. The couple spent it at their home Frogmore Cottage, eating carrot cake. A few days later, the family flew to Ibiza on vacation.
Markle had been delighted to move to the States last year when she was fresh out of the royal family.
The Duchess turns 40 just a few months ahead of her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, who will be celebrating her round birthday in January. Prince William will turn 40 next June.
