Meghan Markle’s Birthday Marks a Very Special Day for the Queen
As Thursday came and went it was clear there would be no formal recognition of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle's, birthday from the Queen, leading to speculation online.
Meghan, who turned 41, was wished a 'happy birthday' by her brother and sister-in-law the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their Instagram Story along with the Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall.
But many noted Queen Elizabeth II had failed to do so.
Rather the Royal Family's official Twitter and Instagram posted about Anne, Princess Royal's trip to Edinburgh.
But there is apparently a very real reason why the social media pages representing Queen Elizabeth II did not post wishing her a 'happy birthday'.
According to The Daily Express' royal correspondent Richard Palmer, "it is thought he Queen congratulated Meghan privately yesterday but her official website neglected to mention her birthday after deciding it will only mark the birthdays of non-working members of the family when they end in a zero."
However the silence from the official Royal Family social media sparked some conversation online from people who believed the relationship between the two was non-existent.
\u201cThe fact that the Queen has opted to not give Meghan Markle a public birthday wish today speaks VOLUMES! \ud83d\udc4f\ud83d\udc51\ud83d\udc99\n\nIt is evident that even Her Majesty the Queen (who has the patience of a saint) is fed up with all of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's victim-playing drama and lies.\u201d
