Meghan Markle is celebrating her 38th birthday today (August 4). She's had a remarkable year: welcoming her baby son into the world, tried her hand at guest editing the most important issue of British Vogue, is bringing out a capsule clothing collection to benefit her patronage and is even reportedly planning to write a children's book.

And even though all birthdays are special, this one may just be her most special one yet, as it is her first one as a mother, so it's safe to say she's planning to spend a quiet Sunday with her husband Prince Harry, her son and close family.

According to royal expert and commentator Omid Scobie, it's not going to be a lavish celebrity affair.

"Prince Harry will be back from Google Camp in Sicily, where he gave a speech about the fight against climate change, so they’ll be spending Meghan’s birthday quietly as a family," he said, adding, "The Sussexes have been so busy this year that I can imagine her birthday will simply involve a well-deserved day of rest with a few friends — and, of course, precious moments with Archie."

There were also rumours that the Sussex clan could be joining the Queen and Prince Philip at the royal estate in Balmoral, where the Queen spends the majority of her summer days.

A source told The Sun: "The Queen and Prince Philip adore the couple and, of course, their new great-grandson Archie, and they have invited them to Balmoral for a few days.

"It is testament to Meghan that she has been given this invite. It’s a huge honour. They will celebrate Meghan’s birthday, and the catering team will bake a cake to mark the occasion."

Just as a devoted husband should, Harry took to Instagram early first thing this morning to wish his 'wonderful wife' Meghan a very happy birthday.

Alongside a gorgeous unseen snapshot of Meghan, he gushed: "Wishing HRH The Duchess of Sussex a very Happy Birthday.

‘Happy Birthday to my amazing wife. Thank you for joining me on this adventure!’ - Love, H."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also shared that cute snap of the four of them heading to church at Christmas with the caption: "Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex today!"

Cute!
