A couple of days into Megxit, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Already Missed to Wish Queen Elizabeth on her Birthday
It’s bad when you forget your grandma’s birthday days after you’ve parted ways with your household. It’s even worse when your grandma is also Queen of England and the longest-reigning monarch in history.
Highlights! Queen Elizabeth of England celebrates her 94th Birthday without Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wishes
- Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 94th birthday quietly
- Prince Willian and Kate Middleton first to wish
- Harry and Meghan missed the opportunity
Queen Elizabeth Turns 94 today! It is to be noted that she has not one but two birthday celebration every year. She was born on April 21, so it’s her actual birthday. However, the monarch dons the birthday cap again in June for public celebration since her ascension to the throne.
Queens Birthday Celebration
The tradition of celebrating two birthdays goes back to 18th century. Every year the Queen celebrates her birthday privately with the family but this is was even quieter. Queen Elizabeth is self-isolated with Prince Philip in Clarence House. While he son Prince Charles and Camilla have recently recovered from the pandemic.
The Queen last spoke to Commonwealth nations via a recorded message about Coronavirus pandemic. Due to the coronavirus lockdown, there was no fanfare and even the tradition of gun salute didn’t take place.
However, The Royal family’s Instagram account released an archive family video of the Queen. She received a lot of wishes on social media.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate were the first ones to wish Queen. With a cake and balloon emojis, the couple wrote on social media, “Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 94th birthday today!”
Harry and Meghan Missed Queens Birthday
However, Queen’s grandson Harry and Meghan Markle have been missing in action on the big day. The couple is not allowed to use their Sussex Royal Instagram account under the Megxit deal. Part of the reason they can’t use it the ‘Royal’ part of the handle. Harry and Meghan cannot use the royal as a trademark or for their personal branding. The couple had last used the account on March 30 while still serving as senior royals.
Last year, the couple shared a tribute to Queen Elizabeth on their SussexRoyal account. They wrote, “Happy Birthday Your Majesty, Ma’am, Granny. Wishing you the most wonderful day! 🎈Harry & Meghan.”
