LONDON - Britain’s royal family wished happy birthday to Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, wife of Prince Harry, via Twitter on Tuesday in a show of friendliness after a rocky period that saw the couple move to the United States.

The official Twitter account for Buckingham Palace, which gives updates on the activities of Queen Elizabeth and other royals, posted a 2018 picture of the monarch with Meghan, who is celebrating her 39th birthday.

Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and his elder brother, Prince William, also posted messages to wish her happy birthday.

Meghan and Harry moved to Los Angeles with their baby son Archie earlier this year after they gave up their official royal roles following disagreements with other family members and in the face of huge media attention.
