The former actress, alongside husband Prince Harry, were very special guests at the wedding of Charlie van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks.

"Thank you everyone for your lovely messages on The Duchess of Sussex's birthday", Kensington Palace added.

Meghan Markle's half-sister has used the opportunity of the Duchess's birthday to take a swipe at her - comparing her to Disney villain, Cruella DeVil.

The royal was photographed mingling with others outside the Church of St. Mary the Virgin in Frensham, shortly before the wedding kicked off.

Meghan styled up her pleated colour-block dress with a Kayu bag, a Philip Treacy hat, Aquazzura shoes, bracelet by Saud Leane.

Prince Charles and Camilla also posted a sweet snap to mark Meghan's first birthday as a royal.

This year marks the 37th birthday of MTV, Donkey Kong, Phil Collins' solo career, and - most importantly - Meghan Markle.

Samantha, 53, went on her private Twitter account to throw shade aimed at the Duchess of Sussex in an effort to push her to send b-day wishes to their dad, Thomas Markle, who celebrated his 74th birthday two weeks ago.

Harry and Mr van Straubenzee are said to have struck up a close friendship as the groom, 30, and the royal attended Ludgrove School in Berkshire together.

Princess Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and her finance Jack Brooksbank, who are also due to marry at Windsor Castle this October, also attended the wedding festivities.

It has already been announced both Harry and Meghan will attend.

Harry also alluded to children being in the couple's future in an interview last November.

"I think a lot of the public is concerned, like, 'Why are you utilizing public channels?'" she continued.
