The Royals brutal snub to Prince Harry on his birthday reveals their rift isn't over

The Royals have clearly placed Meghan Markle out of the picture - literally.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with the Queen and Prince Charles all wished Prince Harry a happy 36th birthday on Tuesday. But each included a sly snub against his wife, Meghan Markle.

Royal fans were quick to point out that the four photos posted of Prince Harry wishing him well on his special day didn't include his wife.

The Duke and Duchess shared a birthday message alongside a picture of themselves and Harry at London’s Olympic park in 2017. The pair can be seen smiling togther druing a royal engagement.


Meanwhile, the Queen posted her birthday message alongside a picture of Harry smiling at Buckingham Palace back in 2017.


Prince Charles’ message to his son included a simple message and two old photos of the Prince, but again, no mention of Meghan.


Eagle-eyed royal fans spotted the snub on social media and commented on what this says about their ongoing royal rift.

"Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Birthday Tribute to Prince Harry Says a Lot About Their Relationship," one said, with another labelling the royals ‘really selfish’.

“How rude. Why not have a photo of him when he’s happy with his lovely wife. Really selfish.”

Prince Harry celebrated his 36th birthday – his first birthday celebration since leaving the royal family – at his new $20 million home in Santa Barbara.

The couple and their son Archie are said to have celebrated the event privately.

Royal watchers say the couple have also given their clearest sign yet that they will not be returning to royal life.

The pair have recently gained financial independence by signing a multimillion dollar deal with Netflix and have repaid the queen the tax-payer money they used to renovate Frogmore cottage.

The bold move suggests they are working independently and distancing their association with the royal family.
