We'd imagine that there is going to be a traditional, family-only celebration with her new in-laws - and Prince Harry definitely has something super romantic planned, surely.

But as for the day itself? It looks like she will be at the wedding of one of Prince Harry's closest friends, Charlie Straubenzee.

Meghan Markle turns 37 on August 4, which is the same day that her husband is due to be a best man at the wedding.

Charlie, as well as his brother Thomas, are very close to Prince William and Prince Harry. Both are thought to have been ushers at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May.

As noticed by Helloroyal photographer Tim Rooke appeared to confirm the news in a series of messages on Twitter.

He started by wishing everyone a "great holiday" and signing off the social media platform for a few weeks, before later adding:

"Unfortunately I will be missing the wedding of Charlie van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks where Prince Harry will be best man on August 4h in Churt Surrey as I will be on the beach.

"Can't do everything!"
