Meghan Markle celebrates her 41st birthday
Members of the Royal Family have sent well wishes and happy birthday messages to the Duchess of Sussex for her 41st birthday.
The messages appear to be a breath of fresh air as the long-running Royal feud between The Sussexes and The Firm continues.
Sharing on social media, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said “Wishing a happy birthday to the Duchess of Sussex!”. A photo of Meghan smiling was shared along with the message.
Following on, Meghan’s father-in-law and Camilla sent their own messages. However, there was no happy birthday sent from the Queen’s social media account, “The Royal Family”.

Prince Harry’s Invictus Games Foundation also sent a message writing “"The Invictus Games Foundation would like to wish the Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!"

Meghan celebrated her birthday privately in Montecito with her husband and their two children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.
Prince Harry and Meghan are believed to have had minimal contact with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales during the Jubilee. However, the birthday messages are one small step in healing the rift with the Royal Family.
