Meghan Markle recently celebrated her 39th birthday. Due to the ongoing pandemic and shutdowns in Los Angeles, the Duchess of Sussex ended up having a quiet birthday at home with her family.
“They spent the day as a family and in the evening Doria looked after Archie so that Meghan and [Prince] Harry could enjoy some couple time,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Harry cooked Meghan a three-course dinner, but Doria helped him with the preparation. While Harry has become a better cook since marrying Meghan, he still has a long way to go!”
According to the source, Harry also “organized a huge chocolate birthday cake, covered in icing sugar and balloons” to make sure this birthday was special despite the limitations from the pandemic. He also made sure his gift was perfect, too. “He wanted the gift to be personal, so he surprised Meghan with a necklace that he designed," the source dished. "And a framed photograph of the two of them, which he took himself.”
Meghan wanted to keep the celebrations "small and intimate” this year, however, she has big plans for her next birthday. She reportedly wants to throw a “big, glamorous birthday party with all her friends for her 40th next year.”
