The Queen, Kate Middleton and Prince William wish Meghan Markle happy birthday
The Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have sent public well-wishes to the Duchess of Sussex on her 39th birthday.
The official Royal Family Instagram account this morning posted a photograph of the Queen, 94, and Meghan Markle on their first joint royal engagement two years ago alongside the message: ‘Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!’
It was followed shortly afterwards by posts from Kate and William’s Kensington Palace account and the Clarence House account, run by the household staff of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The messages come as the Royal Family reels from the bombshell claims made in the Sussexes’ biography Finding Freedom, released next week, which lays bare a rift between the couple and senior members of The Firm.
The book, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durant, claims relations between the Sussexes and the Cambridges grew so bitter that by March, when Harry and Meghan officially hung up their HRH titles, the couples were barely speaking. It is also said the Queen was ‘blindsided’ by Harry and Meghan’s ‘Megxit’ announcement.
