Despite continued and well-publicised rifts in the wake of Megxit, the Royal Family didn’t hold back in wishing Prince Harry a happy 37th birthday today.

The Queen led the way, sharing a selection of photos highlighting Harry’s charity efforts from when he was a working royal.

Prince Charles tweeted a throwback picture of himself and his son leaving their mark in cement at the Dukuduku village school in South Africa in 1997 - a particularly poignant choice, given their falling out.

In Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, Harry addressed his relationship with his father, claiming he had been ‘let down’ by Prince Charles.

Harry and Meghan also made more serious allegations during the interview, accusing the royal family of racism towards their son, Archie, and ignoring Meghan’s claims that she felt lonely and suicidal while pregnant.

Omid Scobie, the co-author of Harry and Meghan’s explosive biography, Finding Freedom, has said that William was ‘furious’ about the interview.

It’s perhaps unsurprising, therefore, that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kept their birthday wishes simple, posting a single portrait.

While it’s custom for members of the Royal Family to mark their birthdays with a charitable initiative or donation, Harry has yet to announce how he’ll celebrate his 37th milestone.

Last year, he chose to promote CAMFED, a charity that supports girls’ education in Africa, by donating $130,000 to the cause, matching donations that the charity had collected in a day.

Meghan, who turned 40 in August, launched the 40x40 project, which encourages people from around the world to donate 40 minutes of their time to help women get back into work.
