The Duchess of Sussex has been out and about in nations abroad. After kick-starting her 42nd, with a close-knit party in California, Meghan Markle recently grooved to the tunes of her Hollywood bestie Beyoncé. Nonetheless, it is just as true that the Duchess has kept it strictly private when it comes to her social circle. Especially after her two most infamous fallouts with David Beckham and George Clooney, split-ups with Markle have become quite common. Hoping onto the bandwagon of the same, another personality now stands against the Duchess. 

Following Oprah Winfrey, this close celebrity pal has also seemingly forgotten Meghan Markle in her celebrations.

As reported by People, Cleo Wade recently threw a joint extravaganza of celebrations with actress Nicole Richie to mark their birthdays. With Richie yet to turn 42 on Thursday, Wade turned 34 on the 13th of September. Engaged to one of the brilliant masterminds of Hollywood, Simon Kinberg, Wade celebrated her big day with her closely knit fellow Virgos. According to the outlet, the author and the stylist had Cameron Diaz, Sofia Richie, and Rachel Zoe on the special list.

Meghan Markle, however, was seemingly absent from the birthday bash. This has become all the more questionable since Wade was recently featured in a picture alongside the Duchess at a brunch. The anti-Sussex squad on social media has reportedly mocked the Duchess for not being invited to the party.

None, by far, however, have been able to discover the exact reason behind the snub. 

Why did Markle not attend the star-studded event? 

For all we know, the Sussexes had been quite swamped with their service at the Invictus Games. Even after wrapping the Rita Ora-led grand finale, the Duchess continued her charitable endeavors before heading back. She reportedly dropped by a German café, surprising the members. There has been no confirmation of their return journey so far.
