They shared a tweet and Insta Story with their millions of followers just after 9am this morning.

How royal fans reacted
Reactions from royal fans on social media encompassed a whole range of emotions.
However, it seems publicly acknowledging Meghan’s birthday may have reflected well on the Cambridges.
That’s because, amid weeks of headlines generated by Tom Bower’s Revenge book, they reached out on social media.
Some commenters on the celebratory posts claimed William and Kate had risen above tabloid presentation of the royals.
