Meghan Markle is believed to have snubbed Royal tradition in favour of her own birthday ritual for son Archie Mountbatten Windsor, who turns three today (May 6).
Meghan has always celebrated traditions of her own for as long as she can remember one of which is practiced on birthdays and is something her mum, Doria Ragland, taught her.
Meghan once claimed on her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, that a birthday is an individual's "own personal" New Year and is a time for growth.
Past goals of Meghan's included "more surprises, more opportunities to grow and more days filled with giggles and cheeky jokes," adding that she always looks for "more inspiration."
Meghan will likely turn her attention to Archie, who has recently become a big brother to Lillibet.
As is tradition, the Duchess may look to teach Archie what she has learnt.
It was today announced that both Meghan and Prince Harry will come to the UK for Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, after all.
The couple has not been in the UK together since dramatically quitting the Royal Family in 2020, however, they are now set to return for the celebrations.
A spokesperson for the couple: " Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children."
Her Majesty is likely to welcome the decision for the Duke and Duchess to return to the UK, as it will represent an opportunity for the 96-year-old monarch to reconnect with her great-grandson Archie as well as being the first time she has seen her new grand-daughter Lilibet.

However, Her Majesty the Queen has reportedly decided that only working royals will join her on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to mark her Platinum Jubilee.
This rules out Harry and Meghan as well as Harry's uncle, the Duke of York.
A Buckingham Palace source said: “After careful consideration, the Queen has decided this year’s traditional trooping the colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2 June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the royal family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen.”
