Did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Snub Prince William?
It looks like there really might be something brewing behind closed doors at Kensington Palace. As a matter of fact, many royal observers noticed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had nothing to say on Prince William’s birthday this past weekend. What’s more, it seems as though they completely snubbed him by not only failing to wish him a Happy Birthday on social media, but by also staying completely silent throughout the entire day.
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Had Nothing To Say On Prince William’s Birthday
For many months now it’s been reported that Prince Harry and Prince William had a falling out after the Duke of Cambridge suggested to his brother that he might have been moving a little too fast with Meghan Markle while they were still dating a few years back. The couple got engaged in November of 2017 and then tied the knot at Windsor Castle in May of 2018.
And while Prince Harry and Meghan Markle apparently forgot to wish the future King of England a very happy 37thbirthday on Instagram, they made sure to send their best wishes to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip on their birthdays.
It Was Rude For Meghan Markle And Prince Harry To Do What They Did
So, what’s up with the snub? That’s what a lot of fans want to know. Royal commentator Ingrid Seward told Britain’s The Sun that it was pretty rude for Harry and Meghan to not even acknowledge William on social media. She said, “I think it’s a snub if they don’t leave one for Prince William as they did for the Duke and for the Queen. If they don’t I think it’s pretty rude and will certainly be construed as purposeful. That is the trouble with Instagram it becomes your slave. But it’s not as if it’s a cousin or a friend – it’s Harry’s big brother.”

Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined The Queen and members of The Royal Family at the annual Trooping the Colour, to celebrate Her Majesty’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour orginated from traditional preparations for battle and has commemorated the birthday of the sovereign for more than 250 years. In the 18th century, guards from the royal palaces regularly assembled to “troop" colours or flags down the rank, so they could be seen and recognised by the soldiers. In 1748, it was announced this parade would also mark the Sovereign’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour is performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies for The Queen’s birthday parade, allowing them to pay a personal tribute to Her Majesty. Today over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians came together on Horse Guards Parade in London in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare. The parade concludes with a 41-gun salute fired by The King’s Troop, following which The Queen leads members of The Royal Family back to the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the Royal Air Force flypast display.

So far the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not made any comments about the supposed snub but at this point it’s safe to say that they won’t be organizing any birthday gatherings for Prince William anytime soon. Of course, that can easily change in the future. For now, it’s pretty clear that Harry and William are not as close as they used to be.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined The Queen and Members of the Royal Family to attend this year’s Order of the Garter service in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. The Order of the Garter is the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain, established by King Edward III nearly 700 years ago. The Order includes The Queen, who is Sovereign of the Garter, The Duke of Cambridge and several senior Members of the Royal Family, and twenty-four knights or ladies chosen in recognition of their work. Knights of the Garter are chosen personally by the Sovereign to honour those who have held public office, who have contributed in a particular way to national life or who have served the Sovereign personally. Supernumerary, or ‘Stranger’ Knights, are overseas monarchs appointed to the Order, and are in addition to the twenty-four knights or ladies — The King of Spain and The King of the Netherlands attended this year’s Garter Day service, during which they were installed as Supernumerary Knights of the Garter. Earlier in the day The Queen held a private Investiture in the Garter Throne Room at Windsor Castle, where Lady Mary Peters was invested with the Order's insignia by Her Majesty. During their visit to Northern Ireland in February, The Duke and Duchess congratulated @Olympics gold medallist Lady Mary on her appointment to the Order of the Garter. 📷 Kensington Palace/PA @TheRoyalFamily @koninklijkhuis #GarterDay #WindsorCastle
