Last year Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated her 36th birthday on a trip to Africa—the same continent where they also spent their honeymoon. Now, with Meghan’s birthday just around the corner on August 4, what do the newlyweds have in store for her first since becoming a royal? Attending another wedding!
Hello! reports that the royal couple will spend August 4 at the wedding of Harry’s childhood friend Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks. Harry and Charlie have been friends for a long time—dating all the way back to their days at Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire. Charlie and his brother, Thomas van Straubenzee, were reportedly ushers in Harry and Meghan’s wedding party, and this time around Harry is returning the favor by serving as Charlie’s best man. As of now it’s unknown if Meghan will have a role in the wedding—so far it’s just been reported that she’ll attend as Harry’s plus-one.
Harry and Meghan’s attendance at the wedding—despite it falling on Meghan’s birthday—was also confirmed by royal photographer Tim Rooke, who took to Twitter to let everyone know that he would’t be photographing the event, as he has a vacation scheduled. ” It has been a busy summer! No more tweets till I visit the Faroe Islands with The Danish Crown Prince Couple and their children towards the end of August.Have a great holiday everyone.Don’t forget the sunscreen,” he tweeted before adding, “Unfortunately I will be missing the wedding of Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks where Prince Harry will be best man on August 4th in Churt Surrey as I will be on the beach .Can’t do everything!”
But knowing Harry and Meghan—and their love for romantic gestures—this might not be all all they have in store for celebrating Meghan’s 37th. We can’t wait to see what transpires on her big day.
