Fans have been holding out hope that the Sussexes would share a new family portrait for the occasion, offering the first glimpse of their new baby, Lili. Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born on June 4, has yet to make her first photographic appearance, leaving fans eager for a look at the littlest royal.

Meghan did, however, decide to use her 40th birthday to do a little good. Through her and Prince Harry's non-profit organization, Archewell, the Duchess of Sussex is launching her 40x40 campaign, which aims to empower women as they reenter the workforce. The duchess asked 40 of her friends, including Adele, Melissa McCarthy, Gloria Steinem, and Amanda Gorman to donate 40 minutes of mentorship to a woman in their community.
