Prince Harry is a major fan of Barack Obama and is undoubtedly head over heels for new wife Meghan Markle.

But did you know that the two Americans share something else in common? Their birthday!

August 4 marks the big day for both the actress turned duchess and the former U.S. president.

So how are they celebrating?

President Obama, who turns 57 today, is likely luxuriating in the birthday messages he's gotten from two of his own favorite people: Michelle Obama and former VP Joe Biden.

"Happy birthday @BarackObama! The view is always better with you," Mrs. Obama wrote along with her husband staring across a desert vista.

Biden shared a photo of himself with Obama after their recent "bromantic" lunch together at Washington's Dog Tag Bakery along with his own birthday message.

"Our lunches together were a highlight of every week at the White House. Last week's trip to @DogTagBakery was no different. Happy birthday to my brother, my friend, @BarackObama," Biden tweeted.

Obama was also honored with the first ever Barack Obama Day in Illinois to honor the occasion. 

Meanwhile, across the pond, Meghan Markle spent part of her 37th birthday attending the wedding Saturday of husband Prince Harry's long-time friend Charlie van Straubenzee to Daisy Jenks.

Van Straubenzee has known the prince since childhood and was an usher at Harry and Meghan's wedding at Windsor Castle in May.

The prince wore a tailcoat and sunglasses, and Meghan a short-sleeved blue dress and matching fascinator, as the couple arrived at the medieval church of St. Mary the Virgin in Frensham, 40 miles southwest of London.

Markle happily waved to well-wishers outside the church. She also thanked her fans on the Kensington Palace Twitter.

No word yet whether Barack and Meghan wished a happy birthday to each other.
