The Duchess of Sussex will celebrate her 38th birthday this weekend at home with Prince Harry and baby Archie. With no plans for a big bash, Meghan and her boys will likely have a quiet dinner at their Frogmore Cottage home. No doubt Meghan will be busy fending a deluge of FaceTime calls and texts from the U.S. and Canada.

Here are 5 Things Meghan Markle Will Enjoy On Her 38th Birthday:

  1.  Mommy Merriment

As her first birthday as a new mom, Meghan’s bound to bask in the baby bliss and blessings of her new little man. Indeed, reports have surfaced that say that Meghan’s birthday will be less about her and more about soaking in the splendid euphoria of parenthood.

2. A Glass of Vino

While it’s pure speculation that the duchess will find herself with a glass of wine at her birthday dinner–it’s likely that the newest guest editor of British Vogue might imbibe for the special occasion. After all, Meghan made no secret of her love affair with the beverage as she named her blog after Tignanello wine and was frequently captured on her Instagram profile toasting with a glass or two.


3. A Gift (or more) from her Prince

Rumor has it the duchess will receive a pair of sparkly earrings and a framed photo of baby Archie for her birthday. Reportedly, Harry has commissioned a new piece of earrings to be designed especially for his wife and baby mama. In addition, there’s a chance a new piece of furniture might also be on the gift list as Meghan is hoping to add some statement furnishings to Frogmore. And there’s also a possibility of a new rocking chair or other furniture for the Major. In terms of photos, Meghan will likely get a black and white or sepia photograph of little Archie Harrison inside a silver frame from Aspreys.

4. Friendly Company

It’s possible the duchess will host a small dinner party to mark her 38th year and she could invite any number of guests including Amal and George Clooney, Victoria and David Beckham or even Duchess Kate and Prince William who have reportedly returned from the summer holiday in Mustique. Harry’s other relatives could be on the invite list as well as fashion pals like Clare Waight Keller or Roland Mouret.


5. Reveling in Her Success

Meghan has just announced she has partnered with Marks and Spencer, Jigsaw, Misha Nonoo and John Lewis to launch a collection of workwear to benefit her Smart Works charity. In addition, the former blogger has shown off her editorial chops by helming September’s issue of British Vogue which will undoubtedly be a best seller. So, the Duchess of Success or Sussex has a lot to celebrate!
