Meghan Markle has just celebrated her first birthday a royal, and it looks like she had a lovely day.
The Duchess of Sussex joined Prince Harry at his close friend Charlie van Straubenzee’s wedding in Surrey.
Meghan would have been sent gifts and cards from fans and well-wishers. But as the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan will have to return many of the presents she received this year, and she had to do the same with her wedding presents.
But as a member of the royal family, she has to be very careful about the presents she accepts and there are lots of rules to follow.
According to the Royal Family’s guidelines: “The fundamental principle governing the acceptance of gifts by Members of The Royal Family is that no gifts, including hospitality or services, should be accepted which would, or might appear to, place the Member of The Royal Family under any obligation to the donor.”
However, they also have to consider whether refusing a gift would offend the person offering it.
