Today is Prince Harry’s 39th birthday, and the royal could be in for a surprise from his brother, Prince William, according to a royal expert.
According to Grant Harrold, King Charles’ former butler, the Prince of Wales may yet reach out to Harry on his special day, despite their ongoing animosity.
Mr. Harrold suggested William give his younger brother an “olive branch,” even though it’s a short one.
He said: “He might get a text, or he might get an email. I hope they do reach out. I’d like to think William would pick up the phone to wish him a happy birthday.”
According to the expert, Harry’s birthday will be an “opportunity” for King Charles to reach out to his estranged son.
He said: “I would hope that Harry would do the same to them on their birthdays. I think the damage has already been done now and I think at this moment in time, I don’t see it dramatically changing.”
Prince Harry began his birthday celebrations in Dusseldorf with “six beers” and a “very jolly good time” with his wife at a traditional German brewery.
Harry and Meghan Markle were sighted in the heart of the German city on Thursday, where they were joined by several aides for dinner at Im Goldened Kessel restaurant after witnessing the Invictus Games.
They were seen laughing throughout the night, with Harry downing six drinks. Meghan chose to limit herself to one beer.
