Given the trenchant controversies that have engulfed the royal family and its hanging-by-the-thread relationships over the last few years, it is only natural that Buckingham would not be celebrating the birthday of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, with any pomp and show. For the sake of it, they kept their royal courtesies while wishing the Duchess a couple of years, even after the split. The one-liners have now been reduced to zero. Following the bombshell Netflix docuseries, Buckingham has seemingly restrained its ties with the estranged royal. However, this day brings in more upsetting memories for the Windsors.
