Meghan Markle will be celebrating her 37th birthday on August 4th, her first as a member of the British royal family. 

Though we’re sure Prince Harry has special plans for his new wife, on the actual day of her birthday the couple will be at the wedding of Harry’s childhood friend Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks, according to Hello!.

But August 4th isn’t just a special day for the Duchess of Sussex, it also has huge significance to Queen Elizabeth, whose mum, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, was born on the same day in 1900. 

The Queen Mother lived until 2002 and was a huge part of both her daughter’s, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, lives.

We’re sure this is just another reason behind Queen Elizabeth’s soft spot for her new granddaugher-in-law.
