*This* Is How Meghan Markle Is Spending Her First Birthday as Duchess

Meghan Markle’s 37th birthday plans are reportedly set. But before you get caught up dreaming about a romantic candlelit dinner of roasted chicken and Tignanello at Kensington Palace, you should know that she’s not celebrating her August 4 birthday in the optimal way (in our opinion).    

In fact, the Duchess of Sussex’s first birthday as a royal will take a back seat to Prince Harry’s best friend’s wedding, according to Hello!. Instead of sipping Champagne with the queen and graciously accepting gifts from Kate Middleton, Meg will supposedly accompany her beloved to Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks’s nuptials in Churt, Surrey, where he’ll serve as best man.

Although it’s not how we’d prefer to spend our birthday, Harry and Van Straubenzee have been friends since they attended Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire, England, as children, so it’s kind of non-negotiable.

Fingers crossed for an open bar.
