Meghan Markle Birthday: Why Is Meghan’s Birthday So Special For Royal Family?

The Duchess’s special day is celebrated alongside that of another royal relative.

On Thursday, the Duchess of Sussex turns 41, and it turns out she shares her birthday with another famous royal: the Queen Mother.

Meghan, Prince Harry’s future wife, was born on the 4th of August in Los Angeles, 81 years after the birth of King George VI’s late wife, who was born in Hitchin, England, on August 4, 1900.

The Queen Mother, whose birth name was Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon, was married to King George and gave birth to two daughters: the current monarch, who was known as Princess Elizabeth until she became queen at the age of 25, and Princess Margaret.

In March 2002, just seven weeks after Princess Margaret’s death, the Queen Mother passed away at the age of 101. As the first member of the British royal family to turn 100, she died in her house in Windsor, Royal Lodge, in her sleep.

After George’s passing in February 1952, his daughter, Princess Elizabeth, became monarch.

On the same day that the Queen would be honoring her late mother, she also used social media to officially celebrate her granddaughter-in-law Meghan’s 41st birthday.

It is speculated that Meghan is spending the day alone with Prince Harry and their two darling children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, who both celebrated their first birthdays in June, where she will be showered with gifts and attention.

The Sussex family celebrates holidays and milestones like birthdays in private at their home in Montecito, Santa Barbara, California.

Earlier this year, while in the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Harry and Meghan did release one photo from their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday celebration at their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage. The photo, the first official image of Lilibet, featured the youngster seated on the grass and beaming up at the camera.

Because Her Majesty’s family nickname was Lilibet, Prince Harry and Meghan’s daughter shares a special bond with the monarchy.
