He steals the show.

It’s Meghan Markle’s 40th birthday and what better way to celebrate the big bash than teaming up with Melissa McCarthy for a light-hearted video?

Apparently one thing is as Prince Harry had other things in mind when it came to putting a smile on his wife’s face for her big day.

Speaking via video link to the comedian, the Duchess of Sussex and her famous pal chatted all things celebratory and what she could do to mark the big occasion including a photoshoot under a tree, tattoos of their faces, a yacht party, and even a Suits reunion.

We definitely wouldn’t mind seeing that last one.

As the video went on, Melissa burst out laughing towards the end in a hilarious blooper and Meghan was quick to turn to the window to see what was so funny.

Harry decided to completely upstage the actress and starts to show off his juggling skills from outside her office.

Thankfully Meghan gets the giggles too, saying “what the -” before not being able to contain herself.

But Meghan wasn’t only laughing at her husband, she was poking fun at herself throughout the whole video too.

Showing up to the call dressed for afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace, Melissa brought up the photoshoot under a tree as one of  her party ideas, which Meghan responded with: “Peaceful under a tree, that’s me every day.”

While the two laughed and joked throughout the video, Meghan also revealed that she would be starting a 40×40 initiative where she plans to call on 40 of her pals to help get women back to work after losing their jobs due to Covid.

She said in a post on Archewell: “In reflecting on my 40th birthday and the many things I am grateful for, I’m struck that time is among our 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.”

And it will see some famous faces helping out with Adele, Amanda Gorman, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and Stella McCartney all jumping on board.
