A Tell-All Book

With the release of Finding Freedom, much of the dirty laundry behind the scenes of the British Royal Family has become public, especially regarding the treatment of Meghan Markle. With Prince Harry and Markle making the decision to step down as senior royals at the beginning of 2020, more and more leaks have sprung, shedding light on how the couple was treated by Harry's family and courtiers.

Still, Finding Freedom is not an official biography, so a source told HollywoodLife that the backlash that the book has gotten isn't causing too much tension for Meghan and Harry.

"They’re not paying it any mind. Although there have been rumors that they collaborated on this book that’s simply not true. They didn’t give a single interview for it. The authors are part of the Royal press corps so they’ve had contact with Meghan and Harry over the years but this is by no means the official Meghan and Harry biography."

How Meghan Is Celebrating Her Birthday

Now that they've broken off from "The Firm" and are living in Los Angeles, Meghan and Harry are focusing on their family and their upcoming business and philanthropic ventures. However, their most pressing thing this week was celebrating Meghan's 39th birthday on Tuesday.

A source told HollywoodLife that the family was keeping things low-key with their celebration, spending time with their son, Archie, and Meghan's mother, Doria Raglan.

"She won’t be having any big party. She doesn’t normally throw herself birthday parties but with all that’s happening [COVID19] it’s not even a consideration for this year. One thing she will absolutely do though is lend her support to some special causes in honor of her birthday. That is something that has been a tradition of hers even before she was famous. It’s something she learned from her mom."

Behind The Scenes

An important part of moving to Los Angeles was the new proximity to Markle's mother, and the HollywoodLife source explained that Raglan is a real support system to the couple right now.

"Meghan’s incredibly close to her mom but it’s been years and years since they lived in the same city so Meghan is taking full advantage of spending time with her. Her mom is the only other person Meghan is spending time with regularly and she has been a huge support for both her and Harry."

Wishing Meghan Happy Birthday

Although Finding Freedom alludes to quite a bit of tension behind the scenes, particularly between Meghan and Kate Middleton, the family's public Instagram accounts are keeping up appearances. Clarence House's Instagram, which focuses on Prince Charles' household, posted a lovely picture of Meghan with the caption "Happy Birthday to The Duchess of Sussex! 🎈"

The Royal Family account shared a lovely picture of Markle alongside the Queen, writing "🎂🎈Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!" The Kensington Royal account, run by Prince William and Kate Middleton's team, posted a pic of Meghan with the same message.
