Saturday, August 4th marks a special day for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Meghan Markle will be turning 37 years old — celebrating her first birthday as an official member of the Royal family.
However, surprisingly, Markle will not be the center of attention on her big day. Prince Harry and his new wife have other plans over the weekend.
According to PEOPLE, the Duke and Duchess will be attending the wedding of Prince Harry’s childhood friend Charlie Van Straubenzee. Harry is Van Straubenzee’s best man. Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton are also expected to make an appearance at the wedding.
The two families are reportedly very close. Van Straubenzee and his soon-to-be wife Daisy Jenks attended the Royal wedding in May. Additionally, Van Staubenzee’s older brother is one of Princess Charlotte’s godparents, reported PEOPLE.
As the big day approaches, Royals fans are anxious to see what Duchess Meghan will wear to the wedding. Earlier this summer, Meghan stunned in a gorgeous dress at the wedding of Princess Diana’s niece.
It is assumed that the newlywed couple will still celebrate Meghan’s birthday at a later date. In 2017, they visited Africa for a safari vacation as her extravagant birthday celebration.
