It's likely that Meghan will be celebrating her birthday with husband Prince Harry and their one-year-old son Archie in Los Angeles. The couple could also be joined by Meghan's mother Doria Ragland for the special occasion.

 

The Sussexes moved to Los Angeles in March after stepping back from royal life and it will be the first time that they will celebrate Meghan's birthday in their new home city.

Prince Harry is yet to make a public tribute. For Meghan's 38th birthday last year, the Duke shared a photo of his wife wearing a blue Veronica Beard dress during their royal visit to Tonga in 2018, on their now-inactive Sussex Royal Instagram account.
