Happy Birthday Meghan Markle! The royal family is turning a blind eye to the scathing tell-all that has lit the internet on fire over the summer. All three social media account for the senior royals wished Meghan Markle a happy 39th birthday. Shocking royal watchers.
After weeks of gossip and confirmed tension exposed in excerpts of Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie’s Finding Freedom, the royal family seemingly strategically chose to take the high road. “The Cambridges, classy as always,” one Instagram comment (with over 8,250 likes) read.
“Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex today! ??” @kensingtonroyal posted alongside a flattering photo of Meghan with a child.
Her father-in-law Prince Charles wished her well and included “photo cred.” “Happy Birthday to The Duchess of Sussex! ? ? PA” said the post. One comment read, “Careful she doesn’t sue you for using her photo. Duchess of Litigation” – with over 1,800 likes. Which kind of sounds like it goes against the royal family’s social media etiquette.
Comments on @theroyalfamily page are just as aggressive. The Queen posting a glowing photo of Meghan with the caption, “?? Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday! ? The Queen and The Duchess are pictured during a joint visit to Chester in 2018.” “Who?” replied one user.
With all of the courteous birthday wishes, it makes you wonder if the royal family is at all phased by the claims made in Finding Freedom. This isn’t their first rodeo :::cough::: Diana: Her True Story :::cough:::.
