Meghan Markle’s one birthday wish revealed as she overcomes ‘brutal time’

1145

MEGHAN MARKLE always wishes for the same thing each year on her birthday. Now, as the Duchess turns 39 today, her birthday wish has been revealed.

Meghan Markle’s birthday wish all stems from the “brutal time” she had in her 20s and her teens. Meghan Markle will be spending her birthday in her temporary LA home, a £15million mansion on the Beverly Ridge Estate formerly owned by actor and producer Tyler Perry. While the coronavirus pandemic may make the day a more low key affair, her day is set to be rocked by the scandal and revelations anticipated for the August 11 launch of the royal biography Finding Freedom. The book is set to explore the very reason the couple chose to step down from royal life in January. However, the book crisis aside, there is one thing the former Suits actress always asks for on her birthday. Every year, Meghan uses her new milestone to reflect on her life and make a few wishes about her future, inspired by her mum Doria Ragland.

Always more inspiration.” She previously imparted these words of wisdom to her website followers, after years of struggling with her identity.

Meghan spoke of how her school days were even worse and she tried everything to avoid eating her lunch alone. She wrote: “My 20s were brutal – a constant battle with myself, judging my weight, my style, my desire to be as cool/as hip/as smart/as ‘whatever’ as everyone else. “My teens were even worse – grappling with how to fit in, and what that even meant.

And I say that so plainly because, well…it takes time. “To be happy. To figure out how to be kind to yourself. To not just choose that happiness, but to feel it.”

I want you to challenge yourself. “I want you to stop gossiping, to try a food that scares you, to buy a coffee for someone just because, to tell someone you love them…and then to tell yourself right back. I want you to find your happiness.” And on her birthday in 2016 she said: “I am feeling so incredibly joyful right now, so grateful and content that all I could wish for is more of the same.” Source: EXPRESS CO UK
