This is a collaborative post with Amanda Keeler. She collected messages from some Sussex fans from all over the world to wish Meghan a Happy Birthday.

The Duchess of Sussex’s first year as a member of the Windsor-Mountbatten family has been a thrilling joy to witness. From her heartfelt foreword for the Together: Our Community Cookbook by Hubb Community Kitchen to the incredibly successful royal tours of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand and Morocco to her surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards to present the British designer of the year womenswear award to her wedding dress designer Clare Waight Keller to being the first guest editor of British Vogue’s September issue in the magazine’s 103-year history. And of course, becoming a first-time mother!
It is life-affirming to see how the Duchess of Sussex’s passion, grace and generosity influences everything she does. It is even better to celebrate it! In that spirit, we asked Sussex Squad members to share their birthday love for the HRH Duchess of Sussex. We hope you enjoy the testimonials and wishes as much as we do.
Happy Birthday Duchess Meghan!
Just as you knew and said, your platform as the Duchess of Sussex has provided opportunities to improve the human condition – and you are making the most of the opportunities in splendid fashion! I look forward to continuing to support you and your lovely family. I wish you many blessings and hope you have a wonderful birthday.
My Nubian Queen of Hearts
Though I never met you, your strength, your smile, compassion and humanitarian work encourages young girls all over to reach out and help others. Your grace under extreme pressure reminds me of the strength that all women of color endure daily. Keep being the beautiful person you are inside and outside. Continue the love that you share with your husband Harry today, tomorrow and forever. And continue to instill Harry and your values into Master Archie.
Destiny is not for comfort seekers but for the daring and determined person who is willing to endure some discomfort without fear. You are closer than ever because you’ve figured out who you are and who you are not. You have let go of people and circumstances that have no role in your future success. You live in ever-growing awareness of what matters in your life and what does not. You have embraced your ordained journey with empathy, poise and grace. Happy Birthday Little Warrior.

Some say birthdays are meant to mark the passing of our lives. A sentiment like this, however, is neglectful of the fact that for some, simply watching life pass them by is not enough. For some people, being and expressing who they are unapologetically is the greatest fulfillment of character that we as people can see exhibited. For someone like Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, this couldn’t be a truer statement.
Meghan, your life has testified to the idea that anyone with the willpower can do anything. From your philanthropic efforts to your charm and radiant personality, it’s difficult to imagine that this reality as we know it could have been the same without you. Your accomplishments are diverse and unmatched: an established feminist at the tender age of 11, actress, humanitarian and established philanthropist. You give a voice to disenfranchised groups in the Commonwealth and beyond and create opportunities for them they didn’t exist before. You are a role model of a unique disposition, showing young girls, boys, women and men, that anything is indeed possible.
Happy Birthday to a queen, a living legend, mother and wife.
From your number one fan and supporter!
I have admired Meghan Markle for over 10 years, since her acting days as Rachel Zane on my favorite TV show SUITS. Meghan brought a breath of fresh air portraying a relatable minority woman working hard in NYC, navigating tough spaces.
Meghan’s current life as a working Mother, wife, daughter and modern-day Princess makes her more relatable, now on a global stage. Her humanitarian and charity work in Africa and beyond have grown her supporters to millions around the world. May God continue to bless Meghan, Archie, and Harry. Happy Birthday to HRH Meghan Mountbatten-Windsor, Duchess of Sussex. #MyPrincess
💮💮Happy Birthday, Meghan. I hope your special day is full of happiness, laughter, and Love ❤. I Hope the year ahead will bless you with good health, strength, peace, lots of love, and success in everything that you do.
May God Bless You Always 💮💮❤❤
My wish for you, Duchess of Sussex, is to have a happy birthday, and may God continue to bless you, Harry and Archie. You continue to inspire a whole bunch of us, young, middle-aged, and old, alike.
Personally, you have inspired me beyond words, to go back into my community and get out of my comfort zone to become active and undertake a project I never thought was possible. Thank you for the work you do, the space you occupy, and the example you set for us all. I am grateful to have come across your path. I pray to God for your every success.
I pray for health for you and your family. May God continue to bless you and strengthen you and Harry. Please don’t ever stop doing what you are doing. Your inspiration is palpable. The ripple effects are immeasurable. Thank you, again, and God bless you always, and keep you and your family safe.
Happy Birthday, My Princess!!

When I think of Duchess Meghan, the term global citizen comes to mind. A global citizen is someone who is aware of and comprehends the wider world and their place in it. Duchess Meghan exemplifies these characteristics by taking an active role in her community and by working with others to make our world more equal, fair and sustainable. The charities she chose in her royal role, the organizations she worked with prior to marrying her love and the clothes she chooses to wear demonstrates this commitment.
Additionally, global citizens help young people build their own understanding of world events. Duchess Meghan established this legacy at the age of 11 by challenging a dish soap manufacturer regarding the language used to sell their product. Also, she is creative, flexible, productive (two world tours while pregnant) and respects and values diversity while consistently working against social injustices.
Many of the Duchess supporters deeply admire her for her work ethic and her ability to continue looking forward while tuning out the noise.
Dear Duchess Meghan,
You deserve all the good in this world. Thank you for being an inspiration to us all.
May your light continue to shine bright every day.
As a member of the commonwealth family, I am delighted to see such passion for charity in you.
I hope you enjoy this happy time. You have millions of people who support and love you.
I wish you well.
Dearest Duchess Meghan,
Hoping you have the happiest of birthdays. Please know, that quite a few of us wish for nothing but your happiness. You’re an inspiration & doing an amazing job! Pamper yourself on this day, and spend an amazing birthday together with your beautiful family.
Dear Duchess Meghan,
Words cannot fully express how much you inspire me with your kindness, wisdom and resilience. There are so many of us here rooting for you and we get excited and happy for you in all your achievements. Thank for for being who you are and showing all girls around the word what feminism is all about. Hope you enjoy your birthday. Sending lots of love to you and your family.
You are a bright light that is very much needed in this universe. Continue being a star and spreading kindness. Sending much love and peace your way. Happy Birthday! 💜
Happy Birthday, Meghan!
As a supporter and admirer of your work, I wish you nothing but the best on your journey as a force for change.
You are a role model and inspiring modern woman. You worked hard for your success before becoming a royal and never lost the passion to help others and make a difference.
Your remarkable path, starting at the age of 11 when you challenged a sexist ad on TV, your first speech at 14 years old, really impressed me. I admire your strength, passion for charity work and how you use your voice to change lives. For me personally, you represent everything what is right for a modern woman in the 21st century.
