Meghan Markle shares birthday with someone very special to Queen | Royal | News (Details)



The Duchess of Sussex turns 37 on August 4, which is the exact same date the Queen Mother was born in 1990.

The Queen Mother died in her sleep back in March 2002 after suffering from a cold for four months before her death.

This year would have been her 118th birthday.

The Queen Mother was the first member of the British Royal Family to reach her 100th birthday in 2000.

Her husband, King George VI, died in February 1952 following a battle with cancer, aged 56, making his daughter Princess Elizabeth the new Queen.

And while the Royal Family will no doubt be remembering the Queen Mother on her birthday, Harry will be celebrating with his new wife.

The Duchess of Sussex’s birthday this year is set to be extra special – as its her first as an official member of the Royal Family.

Last year Harry, 33, whisked Meghan off for a romantic getaway to Africa to celebrate her birthday, a year after they started dating.

A smitten Harry is said to have organised a surprise BBQ under the stars for his new girlfriend.

But this year, Meghan Markle and Harry will celebrate at the wedding of the duke’s best friend Charlie Van Sttraubenzee to Daisy Jenks.

Prince Harry, 33, will be the best man on his close friend’s big day – meaning Meghan will not be allowed to sit next to her new husband during the ceremony.

Mr Van Sttraubenzee served as an usher at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding in May.

His brother is also godfather to Princess Charlotte.
