Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She researches and shares remedies for using certain products for illnesses.

Meghan Markle, whose official title is Duchess of Sussex, turned 37 years old on August 4. What did she wish for that she doesn't have? She has fulfilled her goal of being a star on a hit television show. She played the part of Rachel Zane on Suits for seven seasons. She is married to a prince and lives in a palace. She went from a commoner to a royal and has a royal title.

Even so, there is one thing the Meghan wishes for every year. This year will be no different. She is expected to make the same wish. So, what will she wish for?

Meghan Markle's Annual Birthday Wish

Before she gave up writing her blog The Tig, she explained what her yearly birthday wish has always been. Her annual birthday wish was inspired by her mother, Doria Ragland. She uses her birthday as the perfect time to look back on the last year and to look forward to the next twelve months. She set new goals for the upcoming year and reflects on them.

Back in 2016, Meghan wrote that her mother said birthdays are a person's own personal New Year. It is the appropriate time to make resolutions just for yourself for the year ahead.

Based on that, what will Meghan wish for this year? If she follows her customary pattern of previous years, she will wish for more of the things other people might take for granted. She usually wishes for more surprises, more adventure, more opportunities to grow, more days filled with laughter, more delicious meals, and more inspiration.

According to ELLE UK, she indicated when she was 33 years old that she was happy because she had figured out how to be kind to herself. She added that she had learned not just to choose happiness but to feel it. That was four years ago. The world has seen how much happiness is in the Duchess of Sussex's life.

Meghan's Advice to Others on Their Birthday

Usually, when Meghan celebrates her birthday, she gives others a gift inside of expecting one from them. She gives them a gift of encouragement. She tells others to be kind to themselves. She wants them to challenge themselves. She advises them to stop gossiping, to try a food that scares them, to buy a coffee for someone just because, to tell someone they love them, and then to tell it right back to themselves. In essence, she wants others to find happiness.

On Meghan's Birthday

This is Meghan's first birthday as a royal. Last year, Prince Harry took her on a safari to Africa. This year, the Duke and Duchess will attend a wedding on Meghan's birthday. It is the wedding of Harry's oldest friend from prep school. The wedding is in Surrey, England where Charlie Van Straubenzee is marrying Daisy Jenks.

While Prince Harry will be handling best man duties, Meghan will not be sitting alone because Prince William and Kate Middleton will be attending the same wedding. Prince William and the groom's older brother, Thomas van Straubenzee, are also best friends. In fact, Thomas is one of Princess Charlotte's five godparents.

Both of the Straubenzee brothers were ushers in Prince Harry's wedding on May 19, 2018, when he married Meghan. Surely, being part of the wedding will bring back memories for Prince Harry.

Other than the wedding, there are no other details about birthday plans Harry has for Meghan. Because he is such a romantic, he probably has something special in mind for his wife. They are not scheduled for any official duties because all the royals are on holiday for the entire month of August.

Queen Mother Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon; Born August 4, 1900; Died March 30, 2002 (aged 101)

Meghan's birthday has special meaning for Queen Elizabeth because her own late mother was born on August 4, 1900. She would turn 118 if she had lived, but she died in 2002 at the age of 101.

While Queen Elizabeth II will wish her granddaughter-in-law a happy birthday, she will probably be thinking about her own mother on Saturday.
