Royal Family Members Wish Meghan Markle a Happy 41st Birthday on Instagram

Meghan Markle is celebrating her 41st birthday today, and she is feeling the love from other members of the royal family.

Various royals have shared posts on their social media accounts to mark the Duchess of Sussex's special day. One came from none other than her brother-in-law, Prince William, and his wife, Kate Middleton, who celebrated Markle with a Twitter post that said, “Wishing a happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex!” They shared the same post to their Instagram, and the photo they chose was taken at the Service of Thanksgiving during Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.

But they weren't the only ones who sent birthday wishes.

Markle's father-in-law, Prince Charles, used the account that he shares with Camilla Parker Bowles to also send a message to the duchess. In a new Instagram Story, he wrote, “Happy birthday to the Duchess of Sussex!” And he included a red balloon emoji at the end.

While we're unsure how Markle will celebrate the big 4-1, we're sure that Prince Harry and her two young kids—Archie and Lilibet—have planned something special (and we'll personally be celebrating by buying ourselves some Markle-approved gifts).

In the past, the Duchess of Sussex has hosted relatively low-key affairs with her family, so she'll likely do the same this year (especially since she has a 1-year-old).

Either way, we're just glad to see all these wishes pouring in from her family across the pond. Happy birthday, Meghan!
