MEGHAN Markle has given royal fans a look inside her very stylish office as she celebrated her 40th birthday.
The luxurious space features a healing crystal, what appears to be a Hermes "H" blanket, stacks of her books and pictures of Archie and Lilibet on her desk.
Prince Harry's wife announced her own "40 for 40" birthday bid, which involved people giving "40 minutes of service" helping or mentoring someone.
But in Meghan's "40 x 40" video on her Archewell site – featuring fellow actress Melissa McCarthy bizarrely decked out in English tea attire – we get a glimpse of her zen office space in the Sussexes' Cali mansion.
She chatted to McCarthy Apple Macbook computer, flanked by 11 copies of her children's book The Bench on a huge oak desk, which also features white file in-trays and glass bottles as her beagle "Guy" slept behind her.
Viewers could also see a fancy $1,723 (£1,240) Hermes throw blanket emblazoned with the letter "H" on two cream chairs, while a gold vase with a bunch of large white roses took center stage on her desk.
Her Hermes "H" blanket is made of woven wool, cashmere and the shade Meghan chose appears to be Écru/Gris Clair, the Daily Mail noted.
Meghan also has paper organizers which look like Threshold items sold at Target and priced just under $8.
There is also a framed picture of Archie and picture of Harry kissing a baby while in another image, a person who appears to be Meghan can be seen holding a young child, which reports suggest could be baby Lilibet.
The hardback copies of Meghan's book – a New York Times' bestseller – seem to strategically obscure the pictures. But The Bench sold a meagre 3,212 copies in the UK and didn't make the Official Top 50 chart.
A large, white "master healer" crystal could also be seen in the video beside her books – a type of stone which ranges in price on sites like Etsy. The Duchess and her hubby are openly fans of the healing properties of crystals.
Meanwhile, in a nod to her husband's royal roots, Meghan ensured she had a silver, gold handled tray on her desk during her conversation with McCathy.
A Burleigh Black Regal peacock teacup and saucer from English brand Twinings were also on-hand, which cost approximately $41 each.
Behind Meghan was a stunning stone fireplace, despite the hot weather in California.
The duchess turns 40 today, August 4, 2021.
In her birthday message, Meghan said she asked 40 friends, activists, athletes, artists, and world leaders to "kickoff a global effort by contributing 40 minutes of mentorship to support women re-entering the workforce."
