Meghan Markle turned 39 on Tuesday, and sources say Prince Harry celebrated her birthday in a very special way.
The couple is currently holed up in their Los Angeles, where several lockdown restrictions are in place citing the still-raging coronavirus pandemic. A slew of recently surfaced reports suggests Meghan and Harry celebrated the occasion with an intimate family affair.
“They spent the day as a family and in the evening, Doria looked after Archie so that Meghan and Harry could enjoy some couple time,” a source told The Mirror. Harry prepared a three-course dinner for his wife, while Doria helped him with the cooking, the source added.
Harry’s cooking skills have improved after marrying Meghan, but he still has a long way to go, the source suggests. He bought Meghan two highly personalized gifts – the first was a necklace that he had personally designed for his wife.
Aside from that, Harry gave Meghan a framed photograph of the two of them together. Although Meghan stepped down as a senior royal along with her husband earlier this year, her birthday was celebrated by other members of the royal family.
The Queen shared a photograph of her with Meghan from their joint visit to Chester two years ago. She accompanied the picture with the caption, “Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to their Instagram account to mark Meghan’s birthday by sharing a post that read, “Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex today!”
The couple shocked the world by announcing their plan to step down as senior members of the royal family in Jan. this year. The couple attributed its decision to be financially independent while splitting their time between North America and Britain.
During the lockdown, Harry and Meghan were spotted distributing supplies to residents who were hit the hardest due to the economy closing down amid the pandemic. While Harry caught COVID-19 when the pandemic started, he only experienced mild symptoms and made full recovery.
