The coldness and disputes between Britain’s Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and the rest of the British royal family continue. Harry’s father, King Charles III, will celebrate his 75th birthday with a grand party next week. Although there were reports that he invited his younger son to the event, a spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex denied this. Harry and Meghan are said to be disappointed because they have reportedly not even been approached by anyone from Buckingham Palace.
British royal family is preparing for a big birthday party. On Tuesday, November 14, its current head, King Charles III, will celebrate his 75th birthday. “London’s Clarence House will host a lavish party to mark the milestone anniversary,” reported the British newspaper The Independent.
But the king’s birthday also became another opportunity to deepen the split between the monarch and his younger son, Prince Harry, who a few years ago, together with his wife Meghan Markle, gave up his official position in the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who live permanently with their children in Los Angeles, USA, have long had a strained relationship with the royal family, and it has worsened the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, documentary about the couple on Netflix and the release of Harry’s memoirs Sub.
Britain’s Prince Harry published his memoirs. And he shocked them:
Prince Harry shocks in new book: I took drugs and killed 25 Taliban
They meet only under the most necessary circumstances. The last time Prince Harry saw his London relatives in person was May coronation of Charles III., where he arrived alone. But he did not speak to his father or his older brother Prince William and his wife Catherine and left the country immediately after the ceremony.
So when the British media started reporting a few days ago that Harry and Meghan had been invited to their father and father-in-law’s birthday party, it was seen as a possible attempt to break the ice. And at the same time as proof that while there is a will for reconciliation in Buckingham Palace, there is not on the part of Harry and his wife, as the prince allegedly refused the invitation.

But a spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has now said that these were just rumours, and that neither Prince Harry nor Duchess Meghan had received an invitation. “In response to UK media headlines, we clarify that there has been no contact between the couple and Buckingham Palace regarding invitations to the upcoming birthday His Majesty,” a spokesperson told The Independent.
At the same time, a spokesperson for the couple was supposed to say that Harry and Meghan were very disappointed by the unsubstantiated information about the invitation to the party. According to a source in The Standard, the prince will now look for another way to congratulate his father.
The Independent reminded that the royal family did not publicly wish Prince Harry on his 39th birthday, which he celebrated in September. “The royal family did not even mention his birthday on the official Twitter and Instagram accounts of King Charles III. and of Queen Camillanor on the social networks of the Prince and Princess of Wales (that is, Prince William and Princess Kate),” The Independent mentioned.
Relations between Harry and his family are at freezing point. Also because of the document:
Harry and Meghan have left no stone unturned in the royal family. They started the war with the document
The king’s birthday thus became another proof of continuing schism between the king and his younger son. Experts on the British monarchy have previously emphasized that, although disturbed family relations are primarily a private matter, they also affect the public image of King Charles III, who is failing in his efforts to reconcile with the prince and his wife, even though he is reportedly trying hard to do so.
