Tyler Perry is very proud of Meghan Markle for persevering through things that otherwise would have  ...

To him, she's a princess.

Tyler Perry said in a sweet message to mark Meghan Markle's 41st birthday how he is of her close friend and all that she has overcome.

Perry posted a photo of the Duchess of Sussex kissing the hand of a young girl while on a tour in South Africa in 2019. Ive witnessed you endure things that would have broken a lot of people.

Im so incredibly proud to see how you, your husband, and your children are now. It fills me with joy to say Happy Birthday Princess Meghan.

Perry might have been referring to the press attention Markle has received since joining the royal family. In 2021, she admitted she even considered suicide after being exposed to intense tabloid coverage, especially in the United Kingdom.

After they resigned from their royal family and moved to the United States during the COVID-19 lockdown, Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, are close pals with the filmmaker. He even temporarily moved into his $18 million Beverly Hills home after they moved there.

After a drone passed over the residence, Perrys' security team was hired.

When Markle and Harry parted ways with the British monarchy, she said in a sit-down interview in March 2021, We didn't have a plan and that the invitation to live in Perry's house gave us breathing space to think about what we would do.

The Sussexes have purchased a $14 million house in Montecito, Calif., with their two kids: Archie, 3, and Lilibet, a one-year-old baby.

Perry's heartfelt words came after members of the royal family expressed their congratulations to Markle on Thursday, including Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are said to be on the outs with her and Harry.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge send a happy birthday to the Duchess of Sussex!

Former Suits star also received birthday wishes from Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
