The Duchess of Sussex celebrated her 40th birthday on Wednesday and while many people chimed in to offer their well-wishes, few will compare to those sent by Beyoncé.
The singer, who met Meghan at the UK premiere of Lion King in July 2019, shared a special message on the homepage of her website to mark the occasion.
Visitors to Beyonce.com will have seen that the first thing on the website is a childhood photograph of Meghan alongside the words “Happy Birthday Meghan Markle”.

It’s not the first time Beyoncé has expressed support to Meghan. In March, following the Duchess’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, the musician shared a picture of their 2019 alongside the words:
“Thank you Meghan for your courage and leadership,” the singer wrote. “We are all strengthened and inspired by you.”
During the interview, Meghan spoke at length about her struggles with mental health during her time as a senior member of the royal family.
