Beyoncé has shared a throwback post of Meghan Markle in an adorable message from one powerful woman to another.
- Beyoncé shared the cute photo of a very young Meghan Markle.
- It's not the first time the singer has shared her public support for the royal.
- In other royal news, Meghan Markle treats fans to first look at Lilibet Diana in surprise birthday video.
It's always nice when people celebrate you on your bigger birthdays and for Meghan's 40th, people from all walks of life have been sending their best wishes on her special day. Even the Queen celebrates Meghan Markle's birthday, but she's not the only type of royal sending their love—the Queen of R&B has too.
Via her personal website, Beyoncé shared a super cute photo of the Duchess of Sussex in childhood with "Happy birthday Meghan Markle", all in caps, to the left of the image.

Using old-school photos in birthday tributes seems to be a trend for the singer as she recently used the same format to wish Barack Obama, who celebrated his 60th, a happy birthday too.
There's no denying how Beyoncé feels about Meghan, as she's shown not only love but huge support to the royal. On their first public meeting, at the premiere for the Lion King, she greeted the duchess with a warm embrace and by calling her, "my princess."
Beyoncé previously posted a now-historic photo of her and her hubby Jay Z (AKA the Carters) accepting a BRIT award for Best International Group remotely back in 2019..

The photo, which came after an unforgettable video, shows the couple recreating their Apes**t video but instead of the Mona Lisa; they're standing in front of a painting of Meghan dressed in a very regal manner.
Alongside the caption's gratitude for the gong, the couple added an extra message to Meghan. It read, "In honor of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy."

Considering the volume of support Meghan has received, from countless friends and supporters, it's unlikely she'll be able to thank everyone personally. So she went one step further than anybody could have possibly hoped for; by sharing the first look at Lilibet Diana in a surprise birthday video.
The tiny peak at the baby girl is a big deal as the Sussexes have broken from royal tradition by choosing not to share photos of their secondborn publicly.
