William, Kate and Queen wish Prince Harry ‘very happy’ birthday as Duke turns 36

Prince William and Kate Middleton put their differences with Prince Harry aside by sharing a cheeky birthday message as he turns 36.

The couple posted a snap of Harry beating them in a 2017 race, alongside the caption: “Wishing a very happy birthday to Prince Harry today!”

Other senior royals have also shared their affection for Harry – who quit the royal family and headed to America earlier this year – on social media.

The royal family’s official Twitter account shared a picture of Harry grinning alongside the Queen.

The post said: “Wishing the Duke of Sussex a very happy birthday.”

And Prince Charles’ social media team shared an image of father and son laughing together in 2014.

It comes amid repeated claims of a well-publicised rift between brothers William and Harry.

During their last official engagement before quitting, Harry and wife Meghan Markle were reportedly “very disappointed” after being left out of the royal procession.

It is also claimed that William and Kate “barely acknowledged” Meghan and Harry, despite their efforts to say hello.

Harry and Meghan are reportedly set for a low-key birthday with son Archie.

The couple, who left the UK in March this year, bought an £11million mansion in Santa Barbara, California, after a brief stint in Canada.

Last week they announced that they had paid back the £2.4 of taxpayers’ cash which was used to renovate their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor last year.

It comes after they signed a whopping £112 million deal with Netflix to make documentaries and children’s programmes.

A spokesman for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said: “A contribution has been made to the Sovereign Grant by The Duke of Sussex.

“This contribution, as originally offered by Prince Harry, has fully covered the necessary renovation costs of Frogmore Cottage, a property of Her Majesty The Queen, and will remain the UK residence of The Duke and his family.”

Last year’s royal accounts showed the cost of the renovations – paid for from taxpayers’ money – was £2.4 million.
