Thomas claimed that The Bench author did not respond to his gift, days after Us Weekly confirmed her quiet birthday plans.

“Meghan and [Prince] Harry will be keeping it low-key and simple,” a source told Us exclusively at the time, noting that the couple planned to spend the day with their children. “It’ll be a family affair.”

The insider added that the former actress was not planning a “blowout” party amid the continuing pandemic, but she wasn’t bothered about turning another year older.

“Meghan isn’t fazed about entering into a new decade of her life,” the source explained. “She’s embracing turning 40 years old.”

The Duchess of Sussex also celebrated her birthday by launching her 40×40 initiative. In a video posted on her Archewell website, Meghan asked 40 of her friends — including Melissa McCarthy, Princess Eugenie and Priyanka Chopra Jonas — to donate 40 minutes of mentorship to women reentering the workforce after the coronavirus.
