Meghan Markle turned 38 on August 4, and people have been speculating non-stop about what she did for her birthday. At first, reports suggested the duchess took things pretty easy. She was said to have hung out at home with family and a lovely cake from Luminary Bakery, a shop that hires underserved women in London. (Markle mentioned them in the issue of Vogue she edited.) However, now the tabloids are suggesting Markle’s birthday was a little more involved; sources say she secretly jetted off to Ibiza wth Prince Harry and Baby Archie.
Both Hello! and The Mirror claim that Markle and her family took off on a private jet on August 6 and spent time in a “secluded villa,” heavily watched over by a security team and local escorts. The rumors are based on sightings covered in Spanish media outlets, who first reported that the trio was in the country for a six-day trip. Buckingham Palace did not comment on whether or not the trip actually happened.
Still, it seems like it might have. As Hello! pointed out, Markle has traveled to Ibiza before, in 2016, and there are a few photos from that trip floating around the Internet. Plus, she’s had a lot going on lately, between Vogue, her newly-announced workwear line for charity, and her new mom duties. So it could be that she just needed a mini vacation.
The only confirmed birthday detail people have is the sweet note that Prince Harry left her on their joint Instagram account. “Happy Birthday to my amazing wife. Thank you for joining me on this adventure!’ – Love, H,” he wrote in a caption. For anyone still dying to know exactly how Meghan Markle celebrates her birthdays, there’s a simple solution: Just get an invite to her bash next year.
