This year marks the 37th birthday of MTV, Donkey Kong, Phil Collins' solo career, and — most importantly — Meghan Markle. Born Rachel Meghan Markle on Aug. 4, 1981 in Los Angeles, Saturday marks the Duchess of Sussex's first-ever birthday as a royal.
Meghan and husband Prince Harry spent the day attending the wedding of Harry's old friend Charlie van Straubenzee, who married Daisy Jenks in Surrey, just outside of London.
According to the U.K. tabloid The Mirror, well-wishers sang "Happy Birthday" as Meghan arrived.
And to no one's surprise, the Duchess of Sussex looked gorgeous.
The black and white "My Fair Lady"-esque hat Meghan wore to the Royal Ascot last month was also designed by Treacy.
Her shoes were by luxury brand Aquazzura, and her woven raffia clutch was by Kayu.
And Meghan made the refreshing choice of wearing a (relatively) affordable outfit: her pleated colour-block dress is from Club Monaco and retails for about CAD $425. (That's less than half the cost of her shoes!) The dress is somehow still available online, although it's sure to sell out soon.
The brand, of course, was thrilled: there's no better publicity for a fashion label than for the Duchess of Sussex to wear your clothing.
