MEGHAN, Duchess of Sussex turns 38-years-old today, and the Queen and Prince Philip have paid tribute to her in a touching post.
Meghan Markle’s 38th birthday is today, and social media has been awash with posts wishing her well on her special day. One such message came from the Queen and Prince Philip themselves, as they took to their Instagram account to pay tribute. They wrote: “Happy Birthday to The Duchess of Sussex. The Duchess was born on this day in 1981.”
Their message included a birthday cake emoji, and was accompanied by a picture of Meghan and Harry hand in hand.
The picture was taken in June when Meghan stepped out for one of the first times since Archie was born.
She and Harry attended a baseball game, the first-ever regular-season Major League Baseball game in London.
The Boston Red Sox took on the New York Yankees, and the Sussex’s were given a tiny baseball jersey for their son, which was personalised to say ‘Archie’ on the back.

The tribute from the Queen and Prince Philip came from the official Royal Family Instagram page.
Kate and Prince William have also uploaded a message and picture for Meghan’s birthday, and husband Prince Harry added a sweet comment to his and Meghan’s Instagram account.
Meghan enjoys birthdays, explaining on her now-deleted blog The Tig: “My mom has always said that birthdays are your own personal New Year.
“Your own chance to make resolutions just for yourself and what you prognosticate for your year ahead.”

She said that all she wished for was “More surprises, more adventure, more opportunities to grow, more days filled with giggles and cheeky jokes, more delicious meals, and more inspiration. Always more inspiration.”
A royal insider told Fabulous Digital the touching gifts Meghan will be recieving this year.
The royal source said: “This year there will be a birthday gift from Archie and the odds are on a sepia or black and white photograph of her precious son in a solid silver frame from Aspreys.
“The precious present is likely to have an engraving chosen by Harry that will make it extra special.

“And Harry has a weakness for designing jewellery for Meghan, so it is expected that the royal will design another stunning piece – likely to be earrings – as a Sussex surprise.”
No doubt she will be celebrating the day with her family, as this is the first birthday for the Duchess since becoming a mother.
This year has been a busy one for the Duchess, as she welcomed her first child, became a patron of several charities and has guest-edited the September issue of British Vogue.
Despite still being on maternity leave, Meghan has also attended a baseball game and the UK premiere of the Lion King.
