The Duchess of Sussex shares her birthday with the late Queen Mother which is possibly why Meghan Markle and her Majesty are BFFs. Last year Prince Harry was rumoured to have bought her a £31,000 Mini for her birthday, but with Meghan’s birthday on August 4, what can the Duchess expect this year?
Known for her love of shoes, perhaps the Prince will buy her a pair of Sarah Flint heels. Meghan’s been a fan of Flint’s footwear since her Suits days and attended the London ANZAC day dawn service wearing a pair of black Flint pumps.
If Harry wants to stay in his wife’s good books he’d be wise to give her a massive bunch of peonies – Meghan’s fave floral.
With her natural good looks and glowing skin, the Duchess keeps her make-up low key, “It's just Touche Éclat, curled lashes, mascara, Chap Stick, and a little bit of blush,” says Markle. “That is my favourite kind of look.”
So, rather than a make-up kit, Prince Harry could surprise her with a facial at her fave salon, Nails and Brow in Mayfair, dinner at The Sands, a pub owned by one of Harry’s best mates and a Violet Bakery cupcake. Violet Bakery is owned by Claire Ptak who made the couple’s wedding cake.
And a birthday cake needs candles of course, so the big question: how old is Meghan Markle? The Duchess of Sussex turns a fresh-faced 37 on August 4. So, 37 candles it is.
