It's Meghan Markle's 40th birthday, and while the Duchess of Sussex is busy giving back in the form of a newly-launched initiative to help women re-entering the workforce, she's also giving us something new to add to our shopping lists. Earlier today, the duchess released a video of herself and actress Melissa McCarthy announcing the project, called 40x40, and among some of the hilarious tidbits, she also gave us a glimpse into her routine, including a covetable bit of drinkware. The British royal family is, of course, well-known for their affection for tea, so perhaps its no surprise that Meghan herself is also a sipper—and certainly no shock that she has impeccably stylish taste in teacups.
In the video, Meghan can be seen with a beautifully patterned black and white teacup and saucer. The style appears to be from Burleigh's royally named Black Regal Peacock collection. Though the duo is currently sold out, they do appear to be available separately, and the pattern can likewise be found on a number of other ceramics, so you can round out your collection.
Meghan's new 40x40 initiative is the latest move in the duchess's dedication to women in the workforce. For the project, she asks people—including 40 of her celebrity friends like Adele, Amanda Gorman, Deepak Chopra, and Gloria Steinem—to dedicate 40 minutes of their day to helping a woman returning to the workforce after the pandemic.
"Because I’m turning 40, I’m asking 40 friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help mentor a woman who is mobilizing back into the workforce," Meghan said in the video. "Over 2 million women in the US alone and tens of millions around the world have lost their jobs due to Covid and I think if we all do it and all commit 40 minutes to some sort of act of service, we can create a ripple effect."
