Duchess Catherine and Prince William briefly mark Meghan Markle's birthday with public message

Duchess Catherine and Prince William took to social media on Tuesday to wish the Duchess of Sussex a happy birthday.

What did Duchess Catherine and Prince William say on Meghan's birthday?

On the official Kensington Royal Instagram account, a sweet photo of Meghan talking to a child from an engagement in November was posted.

Alongside it, the caption read: "Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex today!"

A cake and red balloon emoji were also added to the end of the message.

In the run-up to Remembrance Sunday 2019, Meghan and Harry visited the Broom Farm Community Centre - close to their former home in Windsor - to have a coffee with families of soldiers deployed.

In the picture, Meghan is speaking to a little girl who is offering her a cupcake.

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family this spring and moved to Canada.

They later moved again to LA, where Meghan's mum Doria resides.

This follows royal news that Duchess Catherine has been following in the footsteps of Princess Diana by wearing similar floral print dresses to the late Princess.

The Duchess of Cambridge often chooses to emulate Prince William’s late mother’s love of floral prints.

In 1982, Princess Diana wore a pink floral dress with a matching hat at Prince William’s christening.

In 2019, Kate wore a strikingly similar dress at Prince William’s charity polo match and was pictured carrying Prince Louis.

The picture bore a shocking resemblance to the one of Diana holding baby William all those years ago.

Kate also famously mirrored Diana’s outfits when she introduced Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to the world.
