Prince William and Kate Middleton have led tributes to Meghan Markle, as she celebrates her 39th birthday today.

The Queen and Prince Charles also wished Meghan a happy birthday today, via their official social media accounts.

“Wishing a very happy birthday to the Duchess of Sussex today,” Kate and William shared on their official Kensington Royal account.

Sharing a photo of the Queen and Meghan during a joint visit to Chester in 2018, the Royal Family account wrote: “????????Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!”

Through their Clarence House account, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla shared: “Happy Birthday to The Duchess of Sussex! ????”

The messages from the Royal Family come just one week before the release of Finding Freedom, a biography about Meghan and Prince Harry.

The book, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durant, details Meghan and Harry’s romance – as well as their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal family.

According to reports, the book will shed light on the couple’s strained relationship with William and Kate, and will reveal how they felt “unsupported” by Harry’s family.

A source has told MailOnline that there is “no going back” after the release of the bombshell book, and that the pair could face “permanent exile” over the book’s contents.

The biography was reportedly written “with the participation of those closest to the couple”, but Harry and Meghan have denied being involved with the book whatsoever.

A spokesperson for the couple has said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom.”

“This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
