The youngest member's picture was spotted on Meghan Markle's desk along with her firstborn, Archie, and Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle is 40!
To mark the milestone, Meghan got on a video call with comedian Melissa McCarthy, and the two-minute video was shared on the Archewell Foundation website she co-owns with her husband, Prince Harry.
In the video, she spoke about her latest initiative, 40x40, where she encourages people to commit 40 minutes of their time to support women going back to work. When the video begins, Meghan asked McCarthy if she has a second.
McCarthy, who was captured fiddling around with a Rubik's cube, says she does, but immediately goes off-camera once Meghan points out her video is on. She then comes back, complete with a fascinator and a teacup, before the Duchess of Sussex proceeds to tell her what she's planned for her 40th birthday.
While the whole exchange is fun and light, the first thing most people noticed when the video started was the photos on Meghan's desk. A brief glimpse of Lili can be seen in the center of a tri-fold picture frame on the desk, along with a photo of Archie behind, reports PEOPLE. Though not very clear, this is the first time the 2-month-old baby has made an appearance as the doting parents are yet to share an official image.
The couple's beloved rescue dog Guy can be seen napping peacefully behind the former Suits actor's desk throughout the video, but towards the end, Prince Harry makes a cheeky appearance.
After McCarthy asked Meghan if she was going to mark her birthday by throwing an afternoon tea party with her beloved chickens, the actress laughed as she noticed Harry outside through the window, sporting sunglasses and showing off his juggling skills, which was followed by laughter from McCarthy.
Meghan also wore two gold necklaces, that kept her 2-year-old son Archie Harrison and daughter Lilibet Diana, close to her heart. One is the Taurus constellation, representing Archie's zodiac sign, which she paired with the Gemini constellation for Lili, states PEOPLE.
Meghan opened up a bit more about her 40x40 initiative on their website.
"In reflecting on my 40th birthday and the many things I am grateful for, I'm struck that TIME IS AMONG OUR GREATEST AND MOST ESSENTIAL GIFTS: Time with our loved ones, time doing the things we love, time spent learning, laughing, growing, and the sacred time we have on this earth," the mom-of-two wrote.
"Amongst the most valuable gifts of time is also time spent in service to others knowing that it can contribute to incredible change. To that last point, and with my 40th lap around the sun in mind, it made me wonder: what would happen if we all committed 40 minutes to helping someone else or to mentoring someone in need? And then what would happen if we asked our friends to do the same?"
Emphasizing the fact that women are now getting back to work after the COVID-19 pandemic, Meghan noted that "mentorship is one way to help women regain confidence and rebuild their economic strength."
"For my birthday, I have asked 40 friends, activists, athletes, artists, and world leaders to help kickoff a global effort by contributing 40 MINUTES OF MENTORSHIP to support women re-entering the workforce. With this time, I hope they each help someone advance a professional life on her own terms, and, I hope that they inspire countless others to give 40 minutes of their time as well."
Also, Meghan received birthday wishes from Queen Elizabeth, Kate Middleton, and Prince William, and Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
