Duchess Meghan got birthday wishes from Kensington Palace & Clarence House

Happy birthday to Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex! Meg turns 41 years old today. I wonder if we’ll get a new photo or video from her today. Last year, for her 40th, she did that cute mentorship video with Melissa McCarthy. I doubt Meghan will throw a big party in Montecito, but I bet they’ll go out to dinner or maybe have a few friends over for a BBQ. That’s just my guess! Of course, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are planning on throwing themselves some big joint-birthday party at some point this summer. Royal reporters are also claiming the Keens’ party will be “more wholesome” than anything involving the Sussexes. Sigh…

Anyway, it looks like the royal communications offices didn’t forget Meghan’s birthday. Kensington Palace and Clarence House both posted birthday messages to Meghan. Buckingham Palace has not posted anything as of this writing (I will update if and when they do). Both CH and KP chose photos of Meghan from the Jubbly, looking great in greige. This isn’t some huge conspiracy at this point, and it’s not even Will, Kate and Charles updating their social media accounts. It’s some intern or low-level staffer tasked with posting birthday messages. At least they’ve got recent photos of Meghan! (Last year they were using much older pics.)

    Wishing someone a happy birthday when you tried to pressure them into ending their life is pretty ballsy.

    May KP and CH never enjoy another moment’s peace in life again.

    • SussexWatcher says:

      Agree 💯 Haylie! And it has been nice to see karma starting to come for the Cambs and Chuckie. May it continue, longer and harder until the end of time!

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      A big AMEN to that sis. May those snakes in that snakepit and cesspool of a palace continue to sink their fangs into one another. Our good Meghan will continue to be peaceful under the tree with her hot prince and adorable children.

    • Mary S says:

      I just hope the Sussex family never lets their guard down when dealing with the Windsors. Seems to me the Windsors intended to erase Meghan and Archie. When the plan to break up the marriage, cause a miscarriage and/or cause mental illness so severe it resulted in self-harm didn’t work, I believe they were so determined to erase the “unwanteds” that they were willing to sacrifice Harry too. My fear is the Windsors’ plans haven’t changed and now they are playing the long game.

    • HennyO says:

      No happy birtday posting by Buck palace , because Harry outed it’s CEO/ the Queen’s private secretarry Award Yong, as the main palace connection to have influenced the Home Office’s decision to widdraw his security. So Yongy boy is mad at Harry, and by proxy at Meghan. Since he dislike her too, some ‘punishment’ was to be expected from the Buck palace camp.

      He was already pissed at H&M for shaming him for their secret visit to the queen last April, he knew nothing about.

      And since the queen has no say in the day to day operations of BP anymore, this guy does what he pleases to do.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Yes. EY is big mad. and the Cambridges is just PR. When I saw a Good Housekeeping online header (a mag that that had CarolE on the cover) saying something like “See the sweet tribute the D & D of Cambridge paid Meghan on her birthday”, my eyes rolled. Not sure how ‘wishing a Happy Birthday to the Duchess of Sussex’ qualifies as a “sweet tribute”. Calls were made to embiggen a simple/standard birthday wish.

        Happy Birthday, Madame Duchess! I hope your day was filled with love, laughter and excellent food.

  2. Maxine Branch says:

    Wishing for Meghan the best of the best for a Happy Birthday.

  3. SussexWatcher says:

    I honestly wish they wouldn’t bother if they’re going to leave up the nasty, racist replies that they always allow to remain for Meghan-related posts. We all know how KP and CH feel about her so these bland messages just come across as disingenuous.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      I firmly believe they do it for the eengagement. It brings out the worst in their racist fans and they know some of Meghan’s supporters will rush in to defend her. It’s best they focus on their lackluster engagements, numerous helicopters and what the sainted one is wearing.

    • Blithe says:

      I agree. It’s sad, but leaving the racist comments up strongly suggests that the nominal account holders approve—and possibly even enjoy them, with plausible deniability.

      • SussexWatcher says:

        They absolutely agree with it and enjoy the abuse she received and still receives. Will and Kate are vile, racist bullies. And their staff too.

    • equality says:

      They like it because their stans say how wonderful they are for posting BD wishes to the “terrible” Meghan.

  4. Noki says:

    They have now committed to these birthday posts it would cause more chatter if they stopped than to just half heartedly continue. Plus it makes all of them look like the ‘bigger’ people.

    • Maxine Branch says:

      The image of that dastardly family is forever soiled. Nothing they do will change perceptions. They have committed to a smear campaign and will die on that hill. May they all receive the Karma awaiting them.

      • CheChe says:

        Oh, I think karma has started kicking in already. There is a flatness and tawdry aura with British royalty these days. They’ve done themselves no favors by getting in bed with tabloids. You are judged by the company you keep and the stench can’t be covered with flowery phrases and empty photo ops. Many, like me, have lost interest in the ” clown show” called royalty. Purpose driven lives are more interesting.

      • Elizabeth Regina says:

        Spot on @CheChe.

      • SussexWatcher says:

        @CheChe – yes! The number of exclusive interviews and articles etc. lately in the Fail is shocking. I mean, you know the royals are in bed with them but it makes me think this is either quid pro quo for the Meghan abuse or else the Fail is sitting on some other damaging info about Chuck and Cams. I avoid the Fail at all costs so just may be unaware but it seems like the access is a lot more than before.

  5. C-Shell says:

    In our hearts of hearts, we know that KP would not post anything if Bulliam and Khate were making that call, so at least they let their Birthday Intern make a post to save them from themselves. CH seems to have a more benign social media presence (not including their unmoderated commentary). BP? That’s a bit more interesting. I expect they’ll post something. The RR, however, will make a big deal about how no bells are being rung for Meghan’s birthday.

    • Qita says:

      Well, look at the pic they chose and remember what happened that day. Doesn’t seem to be giving a benevolent impression it seems more like shade or trolling. Which an intern probably wouldn’t have the authorization to do on their own. Something is off with this

      • Blue Nails Betty says:

        Right? They refused to interact with H&M at the service but used a photo from that moment to send her bday wishes.

        Bonus: KP and CH had to use a paparazzi pic since they don’t have any candids from personal interaction with M.

        So damn pathetic.

  6. Snuffles says:

    Happiest of Birthdays, Meghan! Now drop that Archetypes podcast as a gift to the world. 😜

    • dogmom says:

      Speaking of, I hope we get an update on 40×40! Would be awesome to have some people say how their lives have been impacted and changed looking back a year later.

      • HennyO says:

        I posted this at the top:

        40 by 40 was created as a Personal Favour of her friends to empowerment other women in their circles, affected by the covid’s loss of jobs, etc., and was never intended as some “project” to be reported about after execution.

    • susan says:

      40X40 was ‘created’ by Meghan and introduced on the Archewell website.
      It was not a personal favor or favour from friends.
      She asked ‘friends’ to donate 40 minutes of their time to women trying to re enter the workforce post covid.
      It was a failed project. 40 women didn’t come on board and frankly, what can well off, well connected women tell an unemployed struggling woman to do….in merely 40 minutes?
      I enjoy this site, but the struggle to be consistently fair to all women is weak.

      • poppedbubble says:

        Hmm I guess that’s why people from all over the world talked about volunteering and how much fun they had mentoring someone.

      • GuestWho says:

        Susan: Not sure why you want to denigrate the impact that 40×40 actually had. There were multitudes of stories of people reaching out giving /getting support – certainly more than 40 people. It wasn’t a formal “project” like, say, the Early Years failure. It was an informal suggestion that moved many people to mentor others. Because you personally didn’t read anything positive about it, doesn’t mean it didn’t make an impact.

        As a long-time fan of this site, I always find it suspicious when one commenter calls another a bot (as you did upthread) for answering a question politely and succinctly. You are wrong about this – either accept that and move on or don’t, but don’t behave like a troll here.

      • equality says:

        I think when she says “favour from friends”, it means that she was informally asking friends (as well as others) to participate. I saw many celebs and everyday people responding on SM that they were participating. Some told details, some did not. Likely, that was to maintain the anonymity of whomever they assisted.

  7. Louise177 says:

    I expect the tabloids will say Meghan is having a multi-million dollar party like they claim every year. Probably a lot of articles about the animosity with the Royals. They don’t change.

    • Amie says:

      And how she invited a slew of a-listers to her lavish birthday bash but they declined and thusly she’s been rejected again and again and again. Like that made up bs for Obama’s birthday last year.

  8. Amy Bee says:

    The royalists like to praise the Royal Family for doing this. Apparently it shows how classy they are but it’s all performative. The Royal Family publicly called Meghan a liar and bully but wish a happy birthday. Yeah, I wish they would stop pretending that they wish Meghan well.

    • Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

      Oh lord, the number of “classy” comments makes me cringe 😬. What ever W&K and C&C are, “classy” is not it. And really who the hell uses “classy” anymore?!

      • Tessa says:

        They are so not classy

      • NYC212 says:

        Much like money and power, if you or someone else has to say you have class, you probably don’t.

      • C says:

        “Classy” is code for “white”.

      • Nick G says:

        The day of Trump’s inauguration, the Magas were in full force commenting on Melania’s and Ivanka’s photos, how “class” was finally back at the White House. My jaw was on the floor. I can’t unlearn the lesson now that “class” is a coded word, used by the hopelessly classless.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      I concur. Why wish someone who you claim drove people to tears and was unkind to a 3 year old a happy birthday? Dreadful family. They may be called the royal family but there is nothing regal or classy about them.

    • swaz says:

      This is exactly why they do it, to generate good PR. I can’t believe that I was so in awe of this family at one time. Ignorance is really bliss. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGHAN🎈🎈🎈

  9. Jais says:

    Happy Birthday 🎉 Meghan 💕

  10. Lili says:

    Happy Birthday Meghan, hers wishing you a great time with your babies and hubby, i hope you are on holiday too

  11. Pumpkin (was Sofia) says:

    Happy Birthday to Meghan!

  12. Rapunzel says:

    They don’t even refer to her by name. Just title. Tells you everything you need to know.

    • Laura D says:

      @Rapunzel
      I noticed the same but, I think it was to avoid Duchess of Sussex trending. The thing is #Happy BirthdayMeghan (with lots of nice positive comments and pictures) has been trending in the UK all day. No matter how hard KP and CH and their tabloid attack dogs try to rewrite history, Meghan is still very popular and well liked in the UK.

  13. Laura D says:

    Happy Birthday Meghan. 🙂

    It’s nice to see you’re trending in the UK with lots of positive tweets. Honestly, you’re loved over here by a lot more people than the tabloids would have you believe. 🙂

    • aquarius64 says:

      I am happy to hear that not every Brit sees Meghan as the anti Christ. Frankly the BM is giving the UK an international black eye.

      • Both Sides Now says:

        They are and are unaware of the damage they have heaped upon themselves. Clueless as usual….

        May they all end up in the vipers pit attacking each other…….oh wait, they already are!!

  14. Islandgirl says:

    Happiest of birthdays to Meghan.
    I wish you much joy and peace with your absolutely amazing family.

  15. Zee says:

    Agreed, and the fact that they never moderate or close comments on these birthday posts knowing full well the hate she gets upsets me every time.

    • one of the marys says:

      My preference is for her supporters to totally ignore the comments under these posts, don’t engage, don’t reply, nothing. Let the stream of hate and disrespect stand alone for the world to see

  16. Tessa says:

    Happy birthday Meghan

  17. C says:

    Happy birthday to Duchess Meghan!!!

  18. Aurora says:

    They always choose an image of Meghan by herself. They never choose a pic with her husband, her children or other royal family members.

    • Amy Bee says:

      They can only use what they have and they don’t have permission to use any unofficial or personal pictures. If she didn’t go to the Jubilee they would have used another old photo of her from when she was a working royal.

  19. Harper says:

    Happy Birthday Meghan! Have a peaceful under a tree kind of day, or whoop it up instead if that’s what you are feeling.

    As for the Cambridges, well, they wouldn’t even come near Meghan when she was there in person for the Jubbly, so this tweet is purely performative.

  20. B says:

    Wishing the Birthday Girl Princess Meghan a great day! 🎂🎈

    The Cambs & Cornwalls are clout chasers of course they wished her HBD & their crap gift was her dad back on british tv yesterday 🙄.

  21. aquarius64 says:

    More like CH & KP are afraid of Harry’s coming out later this year. They want to show they don’t hate Meghan (sure Jan) and Harry is off base for coming for us.

    On a positive note, HBD to HRH the Duchess of Sussex, Countess of Dumbarton, Baroness Kilkeel, Princess Henry of Wales, Mrs. Mountbatten -Windsor. Or you can call her Meghan.

  22. Over it says:

    Happiest of birthdays to my favorite Madame duchess the beautiful, incredible, kind,smart and amazing Meghan. Hope you have a wonderful day with the ones you love and that also love you.

  23. MsIam says:

    Happy birthday to someone who’s beautiful inside and out Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex! ❤👑❤

  24. Lady D says:

    Happy birthday, Duchess. I hope today is everything you want it to be.
    P.S. You look absolutely amazing.

  25. swirlmamad says:

    Happy birthday to Meghan, the only one from that wretched family that I consider a true princess. I hope you have an amazing day with your hot hubby cuddling those adorable babies, surrounded by those who truly love and care about you! You did good, girl.

  26. Mslove says:

    Happy birthday to Duchess Meghan!

  27. AmelieOriginal says:

    Happy birthday to Meghan! I hope she enjoys some family time with Harry, the kids, the dogs, and her mom.

    I did notice the Cambridges didn’t use a birthday emoji like they usually do with other senior members of the royal family. It is awkward they keep wishing happy birthday to the Sussexes, they don’t do it with other members of the BRF apart from Charles, Camilla, the Cambridges, and their kids? All of them are senior royals minus the Sussexes.

  28. Swirlmamad says:

    Also, great point I’m seeing on Twitter — why on earth would you wish a happy birthday to someone who “bullied” your child?!?! Unless, of course, those salacious allegations were completely made up to smear someone’s good name. 😒😒😒 KP can take those fake PR bday wishes and stuff ‘em where the sun don’t shine. Hypocrites.

  29. Janice Hill says:

    I clicked onto the original feed, and someone actually said that Meghan had a weird obsession with the Cambridges marriage! What an insane narcissistic Trumpian move: Accuse your enemy of doing exactly what you are doing.

  30. K8erade says:

    Must be the press offices’ idea of an olive branch. *Yawn*

  31. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    Happy Birthday Madame Duchess!!!!

    Every time I see those shots of her and Harry entering the cathedral it takes my breath away
    Not only does she slay in her outfit, but the POSTURE. Head up, shoulders back, serene attitude. She owned them all that day

  32. Beverley says:

    Happiest of birthdays, Madame Duchess. Big love to you, Princess Henry of Wales. May every good thing come your way. Many happy returns! 💐🎂🎈🎈🎊🎉

    Your white church outfit was fabulous. You slay every time you step out. Always impeccable! You are worth more than all your royal in-laws put together. May all your dreams come true.

  33. SuzieQ says:

    She deserves only joy. May her day — and all the days to come — deliver it.

  34. TheOriginalMia says:

    Happy Birthday, Meghan, from someone who really likes you and wishes you the best today and every day. Hug your gingers and some delicious cake.

  35. L says:

    Have a wonderful birthday 🥳 beautiful Duchess of Sussex!!! 🎂 🎉 🎈 💕 👑 ✨

  36. CheChe says:

    Birthday blessings to Marvelous Meghan. She brings such joy to her admirers and to her family, she is the wonderful gift of a daughter, wife, and mother. I look forward to future projects.

  37. ArtMaven says:

    Her birthday is the same as the Queen Mother? Interesting.

  38. HennyO says:

    No happy birtday posting by Buck palace , because Harry outed it’s CEO/ the Queen’s private secretarry Award Yong, as the main palace connection to have influenced the Home Office’s decision to widdraw his security. So Yongy boy is mad at Harry, and by proxy at Meghan. Since he dislike her too, some ‘punishment’ was to be expected from the Buck palace camp.

    He was already pissed at H&M for shaming him for their secret visit to the queen last April, he knew nothing about.

    And since the queen has no say in the day to day operations of BP anymore, this guy does what he pleases to do.

  39. Dee says:

    Every single person in the UK saw the word “wholesome” and thought “pegging,” as we all did.

  40. Well Wisher says:

    Happy Bornday to Meghan !!

  41. blunt talker says:

    I wish Meghan a very happy and relaxed day -I hope she and her entire family are relaxed and at ease with life-the royal family has said Meghan has done all these awful things and they decide to wish her a happy birthday-I rather kiss a toad-they don’t mean it and most normal thinking people know it-fronting big time.
