Meghan Markle has a lot to celebrate! In addition to welcoming her daughter, Lilibet Diana with husband Prince Harry earlier this year – she's also ringing in her 40th birthday, and this year, everyone can get in on her birthday celebrations.
Last week, the Duchess of Sussex announced her newly-launched initiative 40x40, alongside actress Melissa McCarthy. And while the brand-new initiative is reason enough to raise our glasses – the two are helping women re-enter the workforce – there's also one other reason to celebrate.
If you look close enough in the video, you'll notice that Markle also gives us a glimpse inside her morning routine, and more specifically, her favorite teacup.
So, if you want to give your kitchen cabinets the royal touch, now's your chance.
Meghan Markle's impeccably chic black and white handmade teacup and saucer set are handmade by the brand Burleigh. And, we've spotted a variety of these handmade ceramics sold individually at Harrods, including her two signature staples.
